President Trump fired back at Barack Obama after the former president issued a forceful statement condemning leaders who feed “a climate of fear and hatred.”
He noted recent tragic shootings in El Paso and Dayton come from “troubled individuals who embrace racist ideologies and see themselves obligated to act violently to preserve white supremacy.”
In the same breath he added, “We should strongly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as subhuman, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.”
Lifezette reports that “[Obama’s] words can absolutely be seen as a rebuke of Trump.”

Trump Isn’t Going to Just Take It
President Trump fired back at Obama, noting that he is “the least racist person” and quoting Fox News host Brian Kilmeade in asking if George W herunterladen. Bush ever openly criticized the Democrat’s administration for the Sandy Hook attack.
“President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign,” Kilmeade said adobe flash player free. “Not many people said Obama is out of Control. Mass shootings were happening before the President even thought about running…”
Kilmeade’s colleague, Ainsley Earhart added, “It’s political season and the election is around the corner ricardo. They want to continue to push that racist narrative.”

More Defense of Trump
“I wanted people to know that when a Bernie Sanders supporter, somebody admitted that he watched a different cable network for his political news, shot up Steve Scalise who was within inches of his life and others on that baseball field two years ago we didn’t run out and say oh, he was hunting down Republicans and Bernie Sanders supporter,” Conway insisted. “We were worried about Steve Scalise’s life being saved.”
That’s the difference between Democrats and Republicans – the former group doesn’t mind dancing on the graves of others to make a political point.
Obama Didn’t Condemn Racism When a Racist Attack Took Place During Obama’s Presidency
While the media celebrates Obama’s words today as that of a ‘true leader,’ it’s important to remember that he refused to condemn racism after the Dallas police massacre in July of 2016.
Prior to gunning down five police officers and injuring nine others, Micah Xavier Johnson admitted he “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
Oddly enough, Obama was unable to condemn black nationalists at the time. He didn’t call the attack racist. No, he blamed the police themselves for being bigoted.
“We have all seen this bigotry in our lives at some point,” Obama told the mourners. “None of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune. And that includes our police departments. We know this.”
What we know is that mass shootings occurred during Trump’s presidency, they occurred during Obama’s presidency, and they occurred during Bush’s and Clinton’s administration. They weren’t then, and aren’t now, caused by the President’s criticisms of his political opponents. They are caused by sick individuals with obvious mental health issues.
