Trump: Media Won't Say 'Radical Islamic Terrorism' Because They Don't Want To "Offend" President Obama

|

In an interview published Sunday, Donald Trump told Sharyl Attkisson that President Obama gets "insulted" when he hears the words 'radical Islamic terrorism.

"[The media] just don't want to say that because that offends some people, including our president," Trump said when asked on Sharyl Attkisson's "Full Measure" about the recent attacks in New Jersey, New York and Minnesota. "hey don't want to mention the term radical Islamic terrorism under any circumstance, including Hillary Clinton."

SHARYL ATTKISSON: I caught up with Donald Trump on the campaign trail in Fort Myers Florida and began by asking him about the recent Islamic extremist terrorist attacks in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota

Some of the analysts and some people who are experts as well as some of the media seemed to go into contortions to try not to say early on it was a possible terrorist event.

DONALD TRUMP: That's right. They want to go in and they just don't want to say that because that offends some people, including our president. They don't want to mention the term radical Islamic terrorism under any circumstance, including Hillary Clinton.

I laughed this morning when I saw her on television saying how she's going to do this and she's going to do that.

She's been there for 30 years, she hasn't done anything.

I mean she's all talk and no action. But she was saying that she's going to this.

I'm the one that's been talking about this for a long time, as long as you've known me.

This is radical Islamic terrorism. It has to be dealt with sharply, it's the only language that they're going to understand, and this problem that we have now is only going to get worse with weak leadership.
