President Obama has lashed in to criticism over Donald Trump’speech that condemned Mr. Obama’s policies.


Donald Trump claimed that the President was complicit or approved of Islamic terror attacks, saying on Fox News, “There is something going on.”

“Where does this stop?” Mr Obama asked. “The Orlando killer, one of the San Bernardino killers, the Fort Hood killer – they were all US citizens. Are we going to start treating all Muslim-Americans differently? Are we going to start subjecting them to special surveillance? Are we going to start to discriminate [against] them, because of their faith?”

Obama claimed that Mr.Trump’s approach to the recent shootings have been ‘un-american’ , ironically Trump has openly been nagging Obama for years with insinuations that he’s not a real American.

The generally calm and collected, commander in chief wanted to make sure that his displeasure with the presumptive GOP nominee was heard, charging that that the billionaire Republican’s views are so extreme that he threatens the fabric of America itself.

Mr.Obama also brought up Trump’s policy to deal with the impending radicalization of Islam and how claims such as banning Muslims were the most “shameful” moments in American history when the government had mistreated its people, adding that then Constitution prohibited religious tests

“If we ever abandon those values, we would not only make it a lot easier to radicalize people here and around the world, but we would have betrayed the very things we are trying to protect,” charged Obama

He battered Trump, over his “dangerous” mindset and “loose talk and sloppiness” about who exactly America was fighting, implying that Trump’s remarks were a portrayel of a mindset that was actually driving Muslims who might be prone to radicalization into the arms of ISIS

Trump returned the favor, responding on Thursday during his night rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, saying Obama “was more angry at me than he was at the shooter.”

“The level of anger, that’s the kind of anger that he should have for the shooter and these killers that shouldn’t be here,” Trump added, attacking Obama as a “lousy president” who had done a “terrible job.”
