President Barack Obama on Tuesday charged that “loose talk” about Muslims by presidential hopeful Donald Trump and other Republicans was betraying American values and harming the fight against extremism.

“We’re starting to see where this kind of rhetoric and loose talk and sloppiness about who exactly we’re fighting, where this can lead us,” Obama told a news conference, two days after the Orlando attacks.

“We now have proposals from the presumptive Republican nominee for president of the United States to bar all Muslims from emigrating to America — language that singles out immigrants and suggests entire religious communities are complicit in violence.

Where does this stop?”

    One should not blanket all individuals of a group because of a few bad eggs. My Trump: think more deeply.

    Fact of the matter is that Trump is not a stupid man, regardless of how stupid his positions may sound.

    He is only voicing out loud what is in the inner reccesses of the minds of a certain section of the population of the US, including some who are too ashamed to publicly acknowledge that they indeed hold such thoughts.

    It is a game that may or may not serve him..well in November, depending on how many closet supporters he has.

    In this case Americans are. Being killed maimed and injured by followers of venomous ideology yet it’s the people of the victims that are being haunted blamed and lambasted by no other person than? This is disingenuous.
