Donald Trump’s reacts to Orlando Islamic terrorism attack: “When will we get tough, smart & vigilant?”

The answer to that question is when Trump is elected president.
  But, for the duration of the Obama presidency and in the event of a Hillary Clinton winning the White House, ISIS will have free reign to kill as many Americans they wish.   

NY Times reports Donald J. Trump on Sunday pounced on the news of the massacre at an Orlando gay nightclub to underscore his presidential campaign’s central message — that the United States needs to be tougher to combat Islamist terrorism.

“When will this stop?” Mr. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, wrote in a Twitter post shortly before noon. “When will we get tough, smart & vigilant?”
About an hour later, he amplified that point, writing: “Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don’t want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!”

With the federal authorities describing the shooting as an act of terrorism and identifying the gunman as an American citizen born to Afghan parents, Mr. Trump demanded that President Obama portray the deadliest mass shooting in American history as an example of homegrown jihad.

Obama idea of toughness is pushing a button and killing one ISIS leader at a time.  That’s not tough, it’s lazy and ineffective.  So he can explain that to the 50 families who lost a loved one.
