Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized President Obama for being “worried about global warming” while terrorists “want to blow up our country” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
Trump said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:50] “Well, perhaps he’s incompetent. We have a president that doesn’t know what he’s doing. I think perhaps you could actually say, hard to believe but we have somebody that’s incompetent. He wasn’t meant for the position but, he’s there, and we have him for another year, a little more than a year if you think. And we’re stuck with him, I guess, for a little while.”
Trump added, “Well, he doesn’t even want to use the term, the proper term to describe these people. and, you know, if you’re not going to use the term, and you’re not going to define them correctly, you’re never going to solve the problem. So, he doesn’t use the term. He doesn’t really know. I don’t know. You know, somebody told me before they think he has bad intentions. Let’s assume he doesn’t have bad intentions. I just don’t think he knows what he’s doing. I think it’s gotten to a point where it’s embarrassing. He’s over there talking about global warming. Global warming’s our biggest problem. They want to blow up our country. They want to blow up our cities. They want to knock down our buildings, and he’s worried about global warming. So, you know, we have somebody that’s not in touch.”
