Remember how Obama was terrified to use the phrase “radical Islam” during his presidency? It was pretty remarkable that we elected a president who is so afraid of hurting the feelings of terrorists. Luckily, those days are over and we now have a president that doesn’t care what terrorists think.
Tuesday marks 17 years since 9/11 and President Trump had no problem using the term during his speech honoring the victims.
From The Daily Caller:
President Trump called out “radical Islamic terrorism” during his speech commemorating the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.
During his speech at the memorial where the plane crashed, Trump said, “A piece of America’s heart is buried on these grounds, but in its place has grown a new resolve to live our lives with the same grace and courage as the heroes of Flight 93. This field is now a monument to American defiance. This memorial is now a message to the world. America will never, ever submit to tyranny.”
The audience, gathered in dreary weather, cheered the speech.
“Since September 11, nearly five-and-a-half million young Americans have enlisted in the United States armed forces,” Trump continued. “Nearly 7,000 service members have died facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism.”
Radical Islamic terrorism.
How about that?
A perfect speech that really reminds us all how much our president cares about America.
Even CNN had to admit Trump nailed it.
The rest of the mainstream media has been saying horrible things about Trump all day long and Democrats have been using 9/11 to slam Trump. It’s really been gross.
Check out this ridiculous headline over on a liberal site.
That’s the best they can do? They are mad at Trump for a fist pump? Apparently, the left is so desperate that they now are trying to make us think that Trump is happy about 9/11 or celebrating it or something? Such nonsense. But, that just shows you the difference between the right and left. Trump delivered a unifying speech that meant to bring the country together and the left responded by trying to divide us more.
