Yesterday breaking news came in that a truck plowed into a crowd of innocent civilians in a Christmas market in Berlin, Germany. It is suspected to be a terrorist attack that was planned. 12 were killed by the attack and 50 were injured after the ISIS inspired terrorist committed the heinous act of treachery.
President Elect Donald Trump immediately released a statemenet about the tragedy however Obama has yet to do so. Which people have noticed. Once again the outgoing President headed to the golf course instead where he continued his Hawaiian family vacation.
Reportedly, the ISIS extremist yelled “Don’t forgeries Syria!” just prior to carrying out the act. Which is strikingly similar to the murder of a Russian ambassador in Turkey who was shot in Ankara. Allegedly the attacker screamed, “Don’t forget Aleppo” too.
Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz made the following statement about the tragedy,
“This morning the President was briefed by his National Security Team on the assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey in Ankara today. The President directed his team to provide updates as warranted.”
The White House eventually released the following statement after Obama continued to golf by White House National Security Council spokesman Ned Price,
“The United States condemns in the strongest terms what appears to have been a terrorist attack on a Christmas Market in Berlin, Germany, which has killed and wounded dozens. Germany is one of our closest partners and strongest allies, and we stand together with Berlin in the fight against all those who target our way of life and threaten our societies. We have been in touch with German officials, and we stand ready to provide assistance as they recover from and investigate this horrific incident.”
Here is President Elect Trump’s immediate response,
“Our hearts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of today’s horrifying terror attack in Berlin. Innocent civilians were murdered in the streets as they prepared to celebrate the Christmas holiday. ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad. These terrorists and their regional and worldwide networks must be eradicated from the face of the earth, a mission we will carry out with all freedom-loving partners.”
The difference between Trump and Obama is very clear. While Trump is willing to call our enemy what it is Obama lives in fear of backlash from the Muslim community and refuses to say jihadist extremist. It is because of this attitude that the United States and its citizens have become less safe in the last eight years.
