Presidential candidate Donald Trump blasted the head of the state for his acid remarks on how the businessman has handled journalistic queries on how he would manage the Orlando crisis.
Trump noted that the POTUS was more outraged about his words than about the actual terrorist who put an end to the lives of 50 gay men and women and injured just as many in an Orlando nightclub on Sunday.
The U.S. President blasted Trump over his “loose talk” and “sloppiness” in a news conference shortly after the attack. But Trump said last night that Obama was more angry at him than at the actual attacker.
He added that this level of anger should be channeled at the shooter and other radical islamists. He also welcomed the prospective nomination of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren as a running candidate along with Hillary Clinton after the departure of the “crazy Bernie” from the presidential race (Trump was referring to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders).
In his unique style, he said he hoped Bernie to be replaced by “Pocahontas” a nickname Trump has given to Warren due to her concern for the Native Americans’ fate.
But Obama was not the only Democrat to blast the Republican presidential hopeful and real estate mogul. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders also lashed out at Trump because he said Muslims should be temporarily banned from entering the U.S.
The U.S. President believes that one such ban would make Muslim citizens feel like the U.S. government was betraying them. Obama was also upset by Trump’s remark that the Democrats’ refusal of calling “radical Islamic terrorism” for what it is makes the entire world believe that the U.S. is not the military force it once used to be.
Obama argued that giving a threat a different moniker would not repel that threat. The president deemed Trump’s claim a “political distraction.”
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also criticized the Republican candidate for saying that the U.S. president had a secret agenda related to the fight against global terrorism. She added that such claims are part of conspiracy theories which America doesn’t need right now. America instead needs “leadership and concrete plans,” according to Clinton who didn’t detailed what those plans might be.
