Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump responded to President Obama’s criticism over the refusal to say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ during his campaign rally Tuesday night in Greensboro, North Carolina.
“I watched President Obama today and he was more angry at me than he was at the shooter and many people said that,” Trump told at least 5,000 supporters at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex. “That’s the kind of anger he should have for the shooter and these killers that shouldn’t be here.”
“This one horrible savage, look what he did in a short period of time,” Trump said of the Orlando terrorist who killed nearly 50 people inside a gay nightclub,implying that it doesn’t take a large number of radicals to do damage. “A number of these immigrants have hostile attitudes toward women,” he added, while discussing the increasing amount of immigrants coming into the U.S. from Afghanistan, who overwhelmingly support Sharia law.
“How does this type of immigration make our life better in this country?” Trump questioned.
“If I got elected, we’re going to be fair,” he said of his presidency. “So straight down the middle in terms of justice, but we aren’t going to let people take advantage of us. We’re going to go to the movie theater. We’re going to go on airplanes. We’re going to lead our lives like we’re supposed to lead our lives.”
He also focused on criticizing the presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton talks about women…she plays the woman card more than any human being I’ve ever seen in my life and frankly, I don’t even think women like her from everything I see. And yet, she’s taking 25 million dollars from certain countries…that treat women horrendously, that kill gays and you know what’s going to happen…lets call for Hillary and Bill Clinton to give back the 25 plus million dollars to the countries we’re talking about.
“Crooked Hillary, which is what she is, wants to increase these immigration numbers very substantially. She’s no friend of women and she’s no friend of LGBT Americans,” Trump jabbed. “How can you be a friend when you take tens of millions of dollars [from foreign countries]…when these countries are oppressive to LGBT, when they’re oppressive to everybody!”
“We can’t be led by weak ineffective people,” he added. “Believe me, Hillary Clinton — weak, ineffective.”
“She has 550 percent more [immigrants] she wants to come in than Obama from a certain area where we just don’t’ know what’s going on. We don’t know who they are, where they’re coming from. There’s no documentation,” Trump said. “We want to live in a country where gay and lesbian Americans and all Americans are safe from radical Islam.”
Trump also referenced his recent removal of the Washington Post’s press credentials at his events.
“We just took the press credentials away. I love it,” Trump told his supporters after calling the media dishonest. “We just took the press credentials away from the dishonest Washington Post.”
“I said, ‘Why should I have people following me around sitting up there like big shots and they write very untruthful stories?’” Trump reasoned.
