Obama slams Trump’s ‘loose talk’ on Muslims


WASHINGTON, DC: President Barack Obama assailed Donald Trump and the Republican party for “loose talk” and anti-Muslim rhetoric on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), warning that their populist election message was dangerous and un-American. Tearing into “politicians who tweet and appear on cable news shows,” an irate Obama said right-wing bombast and “yapping” had whipped up anger but done nothing to prevent terrorism. The killing of 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando—by a self-described Islamic State sympathizer—has poured kerosene on already angry election-year debates over guns, terrorism, sex and faith. The bloody attack prompted Trump to repeat his controversial proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the US on counter-terrorism grounds.
