Trump on Refusal To Say Radical Islam: You’d Think Terrorists Are Coming From Sweden

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized the refusal of President Obama and Democratic presidential candidates to say “radical Islamic terrorism,” adding, “you’d almost think they have the terrorists coming out from Sweden” on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Trump said, “Well, if I were president, we probably wouldn’t be in the problems that we have right now, because it’s incredible, we have an attack, and then all of a sudden we bomb all these sites. Why didn’t we bomb the sites before? We should have bombed the sites a long time ago, Mika, these are training camps and training areas largely, and we didn’t take them out. Why is it that we take them out now, after this there’s this vicious and violent attack? The other thing, I’d be explaining the problem to people, we have a president that doesn’t even use the term, and won’t use the term ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ He doesn’t want to use the term. Hillary Clinton didn’t want to use the term the other day in the debate. … But, she didn’t want to use the term, she refused to use — all three of them refused to use the term ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ They just can’t say it.”

He added, “if you can’t define the problem, you’re never going to solve the problem, Joe. They refuse to say what the problem is. I mean, you’d almost think they have the terrorists coming out from Sweden.”
