After this morning’s statement by Hillary Clinton on the weekend attacks in New York City and New Jersey, warning that Donald Trump will “enable terror” if he is elected, Trump has issued a response of his own.
Clinton cited her “experience” as Secretary of State battling ISIS abroad and fighting terrorism. She also makes the drastic claim that the “Islamic State was praying for Mr. Trump’s victory’. Although she started her speech by offering condolences to the victims of this weekend’s attacks, the majority of her speech was dedicated to villainizing Trump and his policies. Ironically, she didn’t offer any solutions or policies of her own during her statement.
Hillary also claims that the Islamic State is “praying” for a Donald Trump presidency, although not offering a concrete reason as to why they would want an American president who has vowed to annihilate them and protect our borders.
Considering Hillary is proposing a 550% increase in refugee immigration, mostly from the war torn Middle East where ISIS has vowed to infiltrate the West, I would imagine the leaders of their terrorist networks would be “praying” for a Clinton win. A presidency that would continue Obama’s weak immigration and national security policies, allowing ISIS to easily slip into our country among refugees.
Trump responded with a statement shortly afterwards, focusing on the problem that America is facing and proposing actual solutions to curb the threat of terrorism.
From the official Donald J. Trump campaign website:
In the past 48 hours, our law enforcement showed again that, without them, our country is neither safe nor secure. I am grateful for the quick action of law enforcement in capturing the terrorist responsible for Saturday’s bombings, and the off-duty police officer for stopping the terrorist in Minnesota. This weekend’s attacks, from Minnesota to Manhattan, are just the latest to be carried out on U.S. soil under President Obama. These should be a wake-up call for every American.
Today, Hillary Clinton showed again that she will say anything – and blame anyone – to shift attention away from the weakness she showed as Secretary of State. The Obama-Clinton doctrine of not taking ISIS seriously enough has emboldened terrorists all over the world. They are hoping and praying that Hillary Clinton becomes President so that they can continue their savagery and murder.
While our President has referred to them as the J.V. Team” and Hillary Clinton calls them our “determined enemies,” I have been willing to call them exactly what they are: radical Islamist terrorists.
I will bring an end to these senseless acts of violence. They are wrong to say that we’re in a fight about `narratives.’ These terrorists pose an existential threat to our country, our values, and our way of life.
When I am President, terrorists like today’s suspect in the New York and New Jersey bombings, Ahmad Khan Rahami, and yesterday’s knife-wielding ISIS sympathizer in Minnesota, Dahir Adan, will be stopped. We will not look the other way. We will not allow political correctness and soft-on-terror, soft-on-crime policies to threaten our security and our lives.
Revelations that the Obama Administration wrongly granted citizenship to over 800 immigrants awaiting deportation from countries of concern to national security or high rates of immigration fraud puts this weekend’s attacks in a broader perspective. The safety and security of the homeland must be the overriding objective of our leaders when it comes to our immigration policy.
That’s why I’ve proposed extreme vetting for immigrants from troubled parts of the world where terrorists live and train, and oppose Hillary Clinton’s 550% increase in the number of refugees from the conflict in Syria. These are tough problems that require tough leadership. We need to get smart and get tough fast so that this weekend’s attacks do not become the new normal here as it has in Europe and other parts of the world.
Trump offers a very different than Clinton, focusing on how to curb the threat of terrorism within our country by instituting strong vetting processing and enabling law enforcement to do their jobs. In fact, one of Trump’s first sentences acknowledged the “quick action” of law enforcement. Trump has often spoke highly of the police, while Clinton either sides against them or ignores them entirely.
Perhaps that is why the Philadelphia FOP police chief chose to endorse Donald Trump today, while noting that Clinton “blew off the police”.
