Donald Trump Takes Shots At Nation’s Leaders For Not Calling Orlando Shooting ‘Radical Islam’, Calls Them ‘Weak’

It looks like Donald Trump isn’t changing his tune from the backlash he received via Twitter.

In a report by Time magazine, Donald Trump is taking shots at the nation’s leaders as a result of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando that has left at least 50 dead and many injured. Trump’s tweet has been the source of many disappointed individuals, and it looks as though he’s not backing down from his stance.

“Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism. I don’t want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart,” Trump tweeted above.

Donald Trump has lashed out at President Obama and Hillary Clinton, calling them “weak.” He came down on President Obama because of his refusal to use the term “radical Islam” while addressing the nation. Trump says that Obama did this “disgracefully,” and even went so far as to criticize America’s leadership as a whole.

“Last night, our nation was attacked by a radical Islamic terrorist. It was the worst terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11, and the second of its kind in six months. My deepest sympathy and support goes out to the victims, the wounded, and their families,” Trump stated.

While Donald Trump isn’t known to be the most sensitive individual, his statement aimed to soothe those suffering from loss. However, this didn’t stop Trump from weighing in on leadership at the same time.

“If we do not get tough and smart real fast, we are not going to have a country anymore,” Trump began. “Because our leaders are weak, I said this was going to happen — and it is only going to get worse. I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist attack. We can’t afford to be politically correct anymore.”

Many are bearing down on Donald Trump’s statements, feeling that the presumptive GOP nominee is attempting to use this situation to further his political campaign. Trump has expressed his belief that Hillary Clinton, presumptive nominee of the Democratic party, should drop out of the race if she isn’t able to say the words “radical Islam.” Clinton simply refers to the shooting as an “act of terrorism”.

According to Business Insider, Hillary’s campaign spokesperson, Jennifer Palmieri, responded to Donald Trump’s statements.

“This act of terror is the largest mass shooting in American history and a tragedy that requires a serious response,” she began to tell Business Insider. “Hillary Clinton has a comprehensive plan to combat ISIS at home and abroad and will be talking to the American people in the coming days about steps she would take to keep the country safe. In contrast, Donald Trump put out political attacks, weak platitudes and self-congratulations.”

Palmieri is implying that Donald Trump has not offered up any sort of solution for this type of attack, and that he has only offered insults to the nation’s leaders. She feels that Americans deserve better. Naturally, she speaks of Hillary Clinton’s plan to address the issue and discuss a course of action she would feel appropriate.

“Trump has offered no real plans to keep our nation safe and no outreach to the Americans targeted, just insults and attacks. In times of crisis more than ever, Americans are looking for leadership and deserve better.”

This isn’t the first time that Donald Trump has been put on the chopping block for insensitive remarks, however. If his stance on the strength of the nation’s leaders is any indication, it certainly won’t be the last.
