Trump’s rise across the country is linked to something very specific that Obama will never get, says analyst

Fox News terrorism analyst Sebastian Gorka explained exactly why GOP nominee Donald Trump is on the rise, and it’s not for the reason you’d expect.

Responding to a question about President Obama’s statement that Trump should not call himself a “populist,” Gorka explained how out of touch the president really is, as captured by Real Clear Politics.

“The Trump phenomenon is a direct response to [Obama’s] divisive presidency,” Gorka said. “The idea that you make commonsense suggestions, that you don’t want an influx of migrants from active war zones where Jihad is going right now — that is bad?”

“That is a negative form of populism,” he said. “The president is so thin-skinned that he is taking the common sense approach from Trump personally, and he really doesn’t understand why Americans are so very, very concerned.”

“The average American is really afraid [of terrorism] and they have every right to be.”
