In his speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, President Trump reinforced his support for the military and there plans to help with the destruction of ISIS.
During his first speech as president to a joint session of Congress, President Trump said he is determined to defeat “Islamic Terrorism.” FINALLY. A President that has the guts to say it.
In his first speech to a joint session of Congress, President Trump underlined his mission to protect America from foreign terrorist threats.
Trump said it is not compassionate but “reckless” to allow uncontrolled entry from countries without proper vetting procedures.
“We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America,” he said, adding that he will not allow this country to become a “sanctuary for extremists.”
Trump said his administration will release new directives on improved vetting procedures and overall national security very soon.
He also said he plans to work with America’s allies in the Muslim world to rid ISIS and other radical Islamic terrorist groups from the Earth.
However the response to Trump using this word was mixed. As one former Obama administration official dismissed President Trump’s reference to “radical Islamic terrorism”.
“There’s nothing magic about those three words, and they’re not a strategy, they’re a talking point,” said Marie Harf, a former State Department spokeswoman, on Fox News.
Trump’s tactics to fight terrorism have faced some bipartisan criticism, though the White House and its allies have defended the “extreme” methods as necessary to prevent attacks. Some have said his campaign-trail rhetoric against Muslims could energize terrorists. However this is complete rubbish as these people are thugs with no respect for the United States and they have no data or proof to back up these claims.
Saying Islamic Terrorism is not the only thing trump has done. As During an hour-long phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin last month, Trump “vowed to join forces to fight terrorism in Syria and elsewhere.
Could this spell the end of Terrorism as we know it? Possibly, as there is ultimately nothing stronger than two superpowers working together.
