Senator Ted Cruz blasted President Obama’s response to last week’s shooting in San Bernardino, saying he is in denial about Islamic terrorism.
Appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” Thursday, the Republican presidential candidate ripped Obama for immediately calling for gun control following the terrorist attack that left 14 Americans dead.
“Anyone who watched President Obama’s speech after the San Bernardino attack was horrified,” Cruz said. “This is a president who’s in denial, whose head is stuck in the sand.”
Pointing out that Obama refuses to even use the words “radical Islamic terror,” Cruz accused the president of ignoring terrorist threats.
“These terrorists tell us they want to kill us, and the Obama administration ignores what they say,” said Cruz.
Megyn Kelly proposed that Obama does not want to alienate good Muslims by demonizing the religion. But Cruz said it was “worse than that,” blasting the administration’s attack on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.
“He believes the bad guys are the American people,” Cruz said. “This has been a consistent problem in the Obama administration … they can’t distinguish from good guys and bad guys.”
Accusing Obama of rationalizing and justifying acts of terror, Cruz said, “What you see is, the president over and over again acts as an apologist for radical Islamic terrorists.”
