President Obama speaks in response to the UCC shooting

Fed up with Donald Trump, President Obama blasts his bigotry and Republicans’ inaction

President Obama today took direct aim at Donald Trump today, denouncing the man Republican voters have picked to be their nominee for his bigotry and worthless talking points. “If there’s anyone out there who thinks we’re confused about who our enemies are, that would come as a surprise to the thousands of terrorists who we’ve taken off the battlefield,” the President said. “There’s no magic to the phrase ‘radical Islam.’ It’s a political talking point — it’s not a strategy.” Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders echoed his denunciations in their own speeches.
