During his speech this afternoon on Orlando, Donald Trump declared once again that the current “politically correct response” to terrorism “cripples our ability” to fight it.
He pledged that he will do more to combat the terror threat than the “incompetent” Obama administration before revisiting his infamous Muslim ban.
Trump basically said the horrific attack vindicated how necessary the ban is, insisting it would be lifted once the United States can “properly and perfectly screen these people.”
He did add that he also plans to suspend entry to the U>S. from areas that are hubs of terrorism, pivoting to arguments about how radical Islamic values are contrary to Western ones.
“We need to tell the truth about radical Islam,” Trump declared, “and we need to do it now.” He brought up how many Muslims in certain countries abroad support oppressive Sharia law.
Trump spent a bit of time going after President Obama and Hillary Clinton for weakness, while making it clear he wants to take a closer look at Muslim communities that don’t report potential terrorists.
