Trump Calls Obama Inept Or Up To Something Sinister

From Politico:

Donald Trump stepped up his criticism of President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday, pointedly questioning Obama's lack of willingness to call the act "radical Islamic terrorism" and insinuating that the president's sympathies might lie elsewhere. His comments came as a second entity tied to the Islamic State on Monday claimed responsibility for the deadliest mass shooting in United States history, a day after 49 people were killed and 53 wounded in an

The Orlando massacre came in the middle of the heated presidential election season, with both of the parties' presumptive nominees issued statements condemning the shooting in their own way. While Clinton denounced the attack and called the shooting another reminder that "weapons of war have no place on our streets," Trump reiterated his call to ban Muslims from entering the United States and declared that Obama should resign because he did not refer to the incident as "radical Islamic terrorism."

On Monday, Trump went further.

"He doesn't get it or he gets it better than anybody understands. It's one or the other," Trump said of Obama on "Fox & Friends," speaking on the phone. "And either one is unacceptable, No. 1, and No. 2, calling on another gun ban, I mean, this man has no clue. First of all, the shooter was licensed. So he went through all the procedures, he was fully licensed to have a gun. So he would have passed the test that the president would have thrown up there. It's so ridiculous. You know, this is a, this is a mentality, this is a state. And you have thousands of shooters like this with the same mentality out there in this country, and we're bringing thousands and thousands of them back into this country, and into the country every year."

Critics seized upon Trump's remark and apparent insinuation on social media.

"We have moved beyond dog whistles to ringing bells," tweeted Clinton ally Neera Tanden, the president of the Center for American Progress.

Trump defended a much-criticized tweet he sent on Sunday, saying, "Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism."

"No, no, no, I'm getting thousands of letters and tweets that I was right about the whole situation," he said. "I mean, I've been right about a lot of things, frankly."

And Trump again implied that the president was not a trustworthy leader when it comes to fighting terrorism.

"We're led by a man who is a very -- look, we're led by a man that either is, is not tough, not smart, or he's got something else in mind," Trump said. "And the something else in mind, you know, people can't believe it. People cannot -- they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the ways he acts and can't even mention the words radical islamic terrorism. There's something going on. It's inconceivable."
