Donald Trump Reacts to Barack Obama’s Prime Time Speech on Terrorism and Defeating ISIS … “We Need a New President Fast”
“We Need a New President Fast” …
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was live tweeting Barack Obama’s prime time speech to America last night on terrorism and how we are going to defeat ISIS. It would appear that Trump was just tweeting what many Americans were thinking after watching the failed and tired same old, same old speech.
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said late Sunday that a new leader is needed to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
“Is that all there is?” Trump asked after President Obama addressed the nation from the Oval Office on Sunday night. “We need a new president – fast!”
“Well, Obama refused to say (he just can’t say it) that we are at war with radical Islamic terrorists,” Trump continued.
“Wish Obama would say ISIS, like almost everyone else, rather than ISIL,” he added, citing Obama’s use of the administration’s preferred acronym for the terrorist group.
And there was more …
UPDATE I: GOP Candidates Bash Obama Speech.
- Carly Fiorina also posted on Twitter after Obama’s speech: “Vintage Obama: No strategy, no leadership. Politics as usual.” She also included a video discussing her plan to defeat ISIS.
- Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Fox News following Obama’s address and told host Bret Baier, “This is a president that called [ISIS] the JV when they first emerged.”
He said Obama “called the attacks in Paris a ‘setback,’” adding that after the Paris attack, Obama only showed emotion toward attacking the GOP candidates pushing to stop the Syrian refugee resettlement program.
“We continue to conduct very limited air assaults,” Rubio added, saying ISIS won’t be defeated only with air assaults.
Rubio also said gun control wouldn’t have prevented the attack in San Bernardino, California
- Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) released a statement prior to Obama’s address this evening.
The reality is that what President Obama, Secretary Kerry and Hillary Clinton have done has not worked. Their policies have in fact made the world more dangerous. It is time for a dramatic shift in both foreign and national security policy. Tonight when President Obama addresses the nation, I hope that he will acknowledge and take responsibility for the failed policies of his administration and will take concrete steps to reverse the damage done.
