Obama goes on tirade against Trump over ‘dangerous’ Muslim ban, ‘radical Islam’


Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama on Tuesday unleashed a blistering verbal assault on Donald Trump and his “dangerous” proposal for a ban on Muslims entering the country, saying the suggestion violates the principles of American democracy and generates rage among would-be extremists.
Dismissing the “yapping” from “politicians who tweet,” Obama described Trump’s suggestions as harmful to the country’s national security.

“We are now seeing how dangerous this kind of mindset and this kind of thinking can be,” he said. “We’re starting to see where this kind of rhetoric and loose talk and sloppiness about who exactly we’re fighting, where this can lead us.”

Obama, sounding infuriated at critiques of his foreign policy, pushed back against criticism for not using the term “radical Islamic terrorism.” And he accused Republicans of fostering resentment among Muslims that could generate further attacks.

“What exactly would using this language accomplish? What exactly would it change?” Obama asked during remarks at the Treasury Department. “Would it make ISIL less committed to try and kill Americans?” he continued, using a different acronym for ISIS.


  1. So the Right says that banning assault rifles won’t make a difference, but banning Muslims will. Funny how all those people that were posting Mohamed Ali quotes last week didn’t know that many of them were inspired by (or actually were) Muslim text.

  2. Meanwhile, John McCain directly blames Obama for the massacre, because he pulled troops out of Iraq.

    Guess what, Senator Senile – ISIS never would have come into existence had we not invaded Iraq in the first place. George W. Bush and his cronies are more responsible for the rise of ISIS than Obama.
