Obama takes swipe at Donald Trump during SOTU


While speaking on his idea of strength and leadership during Tuesday’s State of the Union, President Barack Obama took a potshot at Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

And he used the U.S. Constitution and Pope Francis to do it.

Reminding the country that the Constitution begins with “three simple words” — We the People — the president said these words: “means all the people, not just some.”

“That’s why we need to reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion,” he said. “This isn’t a matter of political correctness. It’s a matter of understanding what makes us strong.”

He then repeated words spoken by His Holiness that “to imitate the hatred and violence of tyrants and murderers is the best way to take their place.”

The remarks were in reference to Trump proposing to ban all Muslims from entering the United States following the terrorist attack in San Bernardino “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

Obama then launched into what has become standard fare for this president — the defense of Islam.

“When politicians insult Muslims, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid bullied, that doesn’t make us safer,” he said. “That’s not telling it like it is. It’s just wrong. It diminishes us in the eyes of the world. It makes it harder to achieve our goals. And it betrays who we are as a country.”
