President Donald J. Trump crushed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in an unexpected landslide in 2016 to take the presidency. His platform was simple: reign in uncontrolled immigration, put American interests first, and undo everything that Obama spent eight years putting in place.
Well, in keeping with his campaign promises, Trump’s new national security strategy is set to be released on Monday and from all reports, it’s in direct contradiction to Obama’s policies.
Check it out, per Daily Caller:
Trump’s new national security strategy places an emphasis on stopping Islamist terrorism and calls it out by name. Obama’s 2015 national security strategy referred to Islam just twice: once because it’s part of ISIS’ name and once to say the administration rejected “the lie that America and its allies are at war with Islam.”
The new national security strategy explicitly links Islamist ideology to jihadist terrorism.
“The United States continues to wage a long war against jihadist terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al Qaeda. These groups are linked by a common radical Islamist ideology that encourages violence against the United States and our partners and produces misery for those under their control,” the new strategy states.
Trump’s strategy also notes, “jihadist terrorists such as ISIS and al-Qaida continue to spread a barbaric ideology that calls for the violent destruction of governments and innocents they consider to be apostates. These Islamist terrorists attempt to force those under their influence to submit to Sharia law.” A source familiar with the strategy’s drafting process described the reference to Sharia law as a “huge” inclusion by the Trump administration.
Thank God that somebody in Washington understands the real threat that Islam poses to the United States of America! Were the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 not enough? How many more times does this country need to be seriously harmed before we wake up?
Barack Hussein Obama refused to even call the terrorists what they actually were… He used vague terms like “extremists” or “the terrorists,” all the while denying the reality of the situation.
Those men were Muslims who hated this country and would stop at nothing, including giving their own lives, to bring this country to its knees.
We finally have a president who understands this!
