Trump Suggests Obama May Secretly Be Working with Muslim Terrorists (VIDEO)

Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump hinted Monday that President Barack Obama is either naive about the threat of terror or actively working with extremists in a Fox News interview after the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

After tweeting that he was getting “congrats for being right” about Sunday’s attack in Orlando, Florida, Trump told the “Fox and Friends” crew he was still getting “thousands of letters and tweets” praising his judgement.

“I mean, I’ve been right about a lot of things, frankly, I was right about ‘take the oil,’ I was right about many, many things,” he said, “Our government, we’re led by a man – look, guys, we’re led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind, people can’t believe it.”

“They cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can’t even mention the words radical Islamic terrorism,” he continued. “There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable. There’s something going on.”

Trump also said Obama either “doesn’t get it or he gets it better than anybody understands – it’s one of the other, and either one is unacceptable.”

The New York businessman also tweeted Sunday that Obama should immediately resign for refusing to use the terror terminology favored by conservatives.

Amid peak birther fervor over Obama’s birth certificate in 2011, Trump told Fox News that perhaps the President wanted to suppress the document because “maybe it says he is a Muslim.”
