Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump’s adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said Muslim leaders should denounce the terrorist attack in Nice, France that occurred Thursday night, killing more than 80 people and injuring dozens more. At least two Americans were killed in the attack.
“The radical Islamist ideology is alive, well, and kicking,” Flynn stated on Friday during an appearance on Fox and Friends.
“I have called out for the leaders of Iran…and the leaders of the Muslim world…to step up and call this what it is,” Flynn added. “They know they have a problem inside of their own system.”
No terrorist group has taken credit for the terrorist attack or been identified as being affiliated with the terrorist, according to the New York Times.
The terrorist — who was identified as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel — drove a truck into a crowd, which was gathered to watch Bastille Day fireworks.
Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel was from Tunisia but moved to France at least more than 10 years ago, around 2005. He was a delivery-truck driver. A government database listing radicalized individuals did not contain his name.
