President Barack Obama believes the fight against the Islamic State (ISIS) is simply a law enforcement exercise and doesn’t recognize the real danger of theterrorism it espouses, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tells Newsmax TV.
“Neither he nor Hillary Clinton can even say ‘Islamic terrorism,'” the GOP presidential candidate said Thursday on “Newsmax Prime.” “They cannot use the two words in a sentence.”
Clinton, the Democrats’ front-runner for president, declined to use the term “radical Islam” in Saturday night’s debate.
“I don’t think we’re at war with Islam,” Clinton said. “I don’t think we’re at war with all Muslims. I think we’re at war with jihadists.”
Bush said Obama and Clinton, Obama’s former secretary of state, created the refugee problem “by inaction, by red lines, by calling ISIS the JV team, by not supporting the Free Syrian Army, by withdrawing” from Iraq.
