Obama utters forbidden phrase ‘radical Islam’ — in attack on ‘dangerous’ Trump

June 14, 2016 /

Whether or not Donald Trump provoked him, President Obama uttered the forbidden phrase “radical Islam” four times Tuesday in a diatribe against the presumptive Republican nominee and others who accuse him of pushing political correctness to absurd extremes in the war on terrorism. Emerging from a meeting with his top counterterrorism officials two days after a radicalized Muslim gunman killed 49 and wounded 53 at a gay nightclub in Florida, the president called Mr. Trump’s attitude about Muslims “dangerous.” And Mr. Obama launched into an angry lecture on civil liberties, diversity and national security that encapsulated seven-plus years of criticism of his handling of the fight against Islamist terrorists.
