After the mass shooting in Orlando, President Barack Obama held a press conference from the White House.
“This massacre is, therefore, a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school or in a house of worship or a movie theater or in a nightclub. And we have to decide if that's the kind of country we want to be. And to actively do nothing is a decision as well,” said the president during the press conference.
He also pointed out that the shooting was a hate crime, but again he refused to use the words Islamic terrorism, which is was.
Then Fox News called the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, to get a comment on Obama's speech.
Trump began the conversation by suggesting that Barack Obama is not at all interested in stopping terrorism, but rather the opposite.
"He doesn't get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands. It's one or the other. And either one is unacceptable," Trump said.
He added that Hillary Clinton should bow out of the 2016 race if she also refuses to say the words "radical Islamic terror."
"She's a weak person. She's weak on so many different levels ... She is not the right person, especially in these times," Trump said, calling the current leadership in our country "inept" and "incapable."
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee explained that failing to acknowledge the enemy as radical Islam makes it impossible to address the problem.
He added that this horrific attack reinforces the need for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration to the U.S., at least until we can establish a better system of vetting refugees entering our country.
Trump said this should also be a reminder to everyday Americans - particularly Muslims - to be vigilant in their communities and report suspicious people.
"Many, many people are out there with worse intentions than this guy had," Trump said.
