Report: President Trump To Focus Counter-Terrorism Program Solely on Radical Islam

Another campaign promise kept.

Multiple sources have reported that President Trump plans to revamp a federal program designed to counter all forms of terrorism, instead having it focus on “radical Islamic extremism.”

Trump spent much of his campaign railing against former President Obama and Democrat Hillary Clinton for being weak in the fight against terrorism, even mocking them for an inability to say the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.”

“I’d be explaining the problem to people,” Trump explained. “We have a president that doesn’t even use the term, and won’t use the term ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ He doesn’t want to use the term. Hillary Clinton didn’t want to use the term the other day in the debate.”

“They just can’t say it,” he scoffed.

“If you can’t define the problem, you’re never going to solve the problem,” he added. “I mean, you’d almost think they have the terrorists coming out from Sweden.”

Trump however, has no problem defining the enemy.

The Trump administration wants to revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism, five people briefed on the matter told Reuters.

The program, “Countering Violent Extremism,” or CVE, would be changed to “Countering Islamic Extremism” or “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism,” the sources said, and would no longer target groups such as white supremacists who have also carried out bombings and shootings in the United States.

Such a change would reflect Trump’s election campaign rhetoric and criticism of former President Barack Obama for being weak in the fight against Islamic State and for refusing to use the phrase “radical Islam” in describing it. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for attacks on civilians in several countries.

During a speech back in August, Trump promised to implement such a program.

“One of my first acts as President will be to establish a Commission on Radical Islam – which will include reformist voices in the Muslim community who will hopefully work with us,” Trump announced.

He explained that “The goal of the commission will be to identify and explain to the American public the core convictions and beliefs of Radical Islam, to identify the warning signs of radicalization, and to expose the networks in our society that support radicalization.”

America finally has a President willing to identify and fight the leading threat to our safety – radical Islam. Identifying the enemy is an important first step to defeating that enemy.

Really, it’s the only first step.
