Trump Suggests Obama’s a Secret Muslim Again

Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump suggested “something is going on” with President Obama for him not to mention the words “radical Islamic terrorism” in the wake of Sunday morning’s deadly mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando. “We’re led by a man who is a very—look, we’re led by a man that either is, is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind,” Trump told Fox & Friends by phone Monday morning. “And the something else in mind—you know, people cannot believe it. People cannot—they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the ways he acts and can’t even mention the words ‘radical islamic terrorism.’ There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable.”

Later in the morning, Trump made similar suggestions to the Today show, telling the NBC morning show: "There are a lot of people that think maybe he doesn't want to get it. A lot of people think maybe he doesn't want to know about it. I happen to think he just doesn't know what he's doing. But there are many people that think he doesn't want to get it."

Trump has a long history of suggesting Obama is a secret Muslim who possibly sympathizes with radical terror attacks. During his “birther” attacks on Obama in 2011, Trump suggested the president hadn’t released his birth certificate “because maybe it says he is a Muslim.” And during an event in 2015, Trump outright declared, “I don’t know if [Obama] loves America.”
