In the wake of the tragic shooting in Orlando, politicians have taken to the mic in an effort to deliver their thoughts on such a massacre. Both presumed presidential candidates have addressed the country. While Hillary Clinton took the diplomatic approach of speaking as to why America needs to come together to defeat our enemies, Donald Trump took the more, well, Trump approach.
During his speech, he not only abhorrently criticized both Clinton and Obama, but he also decided to go for the jugular. Trump has constantly demonstrated how weak he believes the Obama administration is and he further proved that when he said, “The first thing you need is a president that will mention the problem. And he won't even mention what the problem is.”
By problem, Trump is referring to the term “radical Islam,” a term that he and other GOP politicians have slammed Obama for not using. Well, President Obama has had enough and decided to clap back during a national address.
Obama has tried to reason and explain that using the term is not going to magically fix the problem, but now the POTUS is done reasoning. During his remarks, Obama suggested that Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims is dangerous, and he went on to say “that’s not the America we want.” He continued to explain, “It doesn't reflect our democratic ideals. It will make us less safe.”
As Trump’s disgusting remarks gain momentum, so does his disapproval rating. According to an ABC/Washington Post poll, nearly 70% of Americans find the GOP candidate unfavorable. With numbers like that, it looks like Trump and his Muslim ban will be nowhere near the White House come November.
