Trump: ‘There’s Something We Don’t Know About’ Obama
Hinting that he’s a secret Muslim or maybe that we still haven’t seen the birth certificate, Donald Trump continues dog whistling to bigots and xenophobes.
Much as he tends to compliment immigrants before attacking them as likely rapists and murderers, Trump then said that the government must be concerned about Muslim refugees because “there’s something going on.”
He also said that there is something about President Obama that makes him ignore this supposed threat from Muslims: “We can’t close our eyes. I don’t know what’s wrong with Obama, he wants to close his eyes and pretend it’s not happening. Why is he so emphatic on not solving the problem? There’s something we don’t know about. There’s something we don’t know about.”
He went on to urge attendees to report their neighbors if they’re suspicious of them, adding, “most likely you’ll be wrong and that’s okay.”
The birther presidential candidate previously said that “some people think” Obama wants to bring in Syrian refugees because he has “evil intentions.”
