Trump: Obama’s Rhetoric On Refugees Is ‘Insane’
Donald Trump’s campaign is hemorrhaging irony, most recently when he said that President Obama’s positions on refugees is crazy, without ever saying why he think so.
“I can’t even believe that he’s saying it. It’s inconceivable that he’s saying it,” the Republican presidential front-runner told Fox & Friends.
“It is disgraceful that he could say this, and especially when he talks about coming in from the Middle East…. Where they are undocumented, we have no idea where they come from. We have no idea who they are.” He then went on to imply that the San Bernardino killers were refugees, but both were citizens (one by birth, one by marriage).
“It is just insane what this man is saying,” Trump said.
The Hill reports:
Obama said in his weekly address Saturday that the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) would require more than just a military response.
“As we move forward in this fight, we have to wield another weapon alongside our airstrikes, our military, our counterterrorism work, and our diplomacy,” Obama said.
“And that’s the power of our example. Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL’s violence. Our determination to win the battle against ISIL’s hateful and violent propaganda — a distorted view of Islam that aims to radicalize young Muslims to their cause,” Obama said, using another acronym for ISIS.
The heightened focus on the U.S.-led coalition to defeat the terrorist group comes in the wake of last week’s deadly attacks in Brussels claimed by ISIS.
