“Resign Now”, Donald Trump Tells Obama After Orlando Shooting Comments
Presidential aspirant, Donald Trump is on the attack in the wake of the tragic shooting in Orlando over the weekend, and he has demanded President Obama resign after what he called a lackluster response to the crisis.
“In his remarks today, President Obama disgracefully refused to even say the words ‘Radical Islam,’” . “For that reason alone, he should step down.” Trump wrote in a staatement he released immediately.
Obama had said after the massacre: “Today, as Americans, we grieve the brutal murder,a horrific massacre of dozens of innocent people. We pray for their families, who are grasping for answers with broken hearts.”
But the president did not identify any link between radical Islam and the 29-year-old shooter, who reportedly pledged allegiance to ISIS.
The shooter, identified as Omar Mateen, reportedly called 911 moments before his attack to announce his allegiance to the Islamic State, though there was no indication that he had corresponded directly with terrorists overseas.
In addition to slamming Obama, Trump bashed Hillary Clinton as well, insisting that if she couldn’t “say the two words ‘Radical Islam’ she should get out of this race for the Presidency.”
Trump repeated his sentiments on Twitter writing, “Is President Obama going to finally mention the words radical Islamic terrorism? If he doesn’t he should immediately resign in disgrace!”
