Trump Stands For America, Calls Out Islamic Terrorists For What They Really Are

Mike Brest Reporter

President Donald Trump stood up for American and went after Islamic terrorists during his speech in Kansas City, Missouri, on Tuesday afternoon.

WATCH:

“We’re putting America first again and we are seeing the incredible results. We’re destroying the bloodthirsty killers known as ISIS — almost gone. We are calling the threat by its real name — a name that wasn’t mentioned for a long time,” the president said.

“It’s called radical Islamic terrorism. It’s what it is. You have to know your enemy before you can defeat your enemy,” he continued.

The crowd applauded as the president made the comments.

President Trump no so subtle jab was directed to his predecessor, President Obama. Obama rarely, if ever, referred to terrorism as “radical Islamic terrorism” like Trump does.

Trump was speaking at the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States National Convention in Kansas City, Missouri. The event comes a day after the president’s choice to head Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie was confirmed by the Senate.
