Donald Trump is praising law enforcement for its handling of the terrorist attacks in Minnesota, Manhattan and New Jersey over the weekend, while criticizing his rival Hillary Clinton for her record as secretary of state and plans to take in more refugees from the Middle East.
“In the past 48 hours, our law enforcement showed again that, without them, our country is neither safe nor secure. I am grateful for the quick action of law enforcement in capturing the terrorist responsible for Saturday’s bombings, and the off-duty police officer for stopping the terrorist in Minnesota. This weekend’s attacks, from Minnesota to Manhattan, are just the latest to be carried out on U.S. soil under President Obama. These should be a wake-up call for every American,” Trump stated in a press release.
Trump also slammed Clinton’s reaction to the attacks, saying “she will say anything – and blame anyone – to shift attention away from the weakness she showed as Secretary of State.”
“The Obama-Clinton doctrine of not taking ISIS seriously enough has emboldened terrorists all over the world. They are hoping and praying that Hillary Clinton becomes President so that they can continue their savagery and murder,” he added.
