Statements from Donald Trump:
In a tweet:
"Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!"
A statement from the Trump campaign today:
“In his remarks today, President Obama disgracefully refused to even say the words ‘Radical Islam,’” “For that reason alone, he should step down. If Hillary Clinton, after this attack, still cannot say the two words ‘Radical Islam’ she should get out of this race for the Presidency.” "If we do not get tough and smart real fast, we are not going to have a country anymore. because our leaders are weak. I said this was going to happen - and it is only going to get worse. I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist attack. We can't afford to be politically correct anymore.
Compare this with Obama's world view:
ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim,” he said on Sept. 10, 2014. “And ISIL is certainly not a state. It is recognized by no government, nor by the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”
Statements like Trumps are one of several reasons that I believe that he will win this election. People are tired of the twisted logic of Obama and Hillary in regard to radical Islam. Trumps approach to the problem is just what most American's want to hear right now. The lefts anti-gun mantra has no relevance to the problem. They want to disarm us at a time in America when we need to be armed more than ever. Are we supposed to rely on the Feds? Omar Mateen has been under observation by the F.B.I. since 2013. The problem for Hillary is that even lifelong Democrats, not the leadership of the party, but the average person on the street, realizes that guns are not the problem. They also believe in the fundamental right of self defense. Regardless of what anyone thinks about homosexuality, these were Americans attacked in their own country, not bothering anyone. What the left doesn't seem to get is that Islam hates them even more than they hate us. The lefts hatred for us, the bitter clingers, that clings to our guns and the Christian religion, supersedes their hatred of Islam. They hate us because they can't control us. That pesky 2nd Amendment is the only thing standing between them and total control, and that fact drives them crazy.
