He said in part:
We need to respond to this attack on America as one united people – with force, purpose and determination.Puhleez, that is the problem, the nutjobs among the Islamics want all Islamics to think of us as a united people who want to respond with force to all Islamics.
Omar Saddiqui Mateen is dead, who are we going to respond with force against?
He then got more authoritarian:
As President I will give our intelligence community, law enforcement and military the tools they need to prevent terrorist attacks.But our intelligence community knew about the recent nutjob killers, what kind of tools does he want to give the intelligence community? Sounds like an expanded surveillance state.
And what "tools" exactly does law enforcement need? And how does the military come into this picture?
This is really all totalitarian talk.
He went on:
That is why our new goal must be to defeat Islamic terrorism, not nation-building.Got it? Trump doesn't want to end military adventures overseas, he wants to justify them in a different manner.
He ended his national security speech on a bizarre note about his Keynesian infrastructure plan:
I want to fix our schools, roads, bridges and job market.Scary dude.
