Though president must have the tools to deal at all threats that this country. And must have that got us to put than an action whenever necessary. It's. Donald Trump is that lead our. Miss it again.

Todd Lang and displays of empathy. Towards terrorists. Is not a strategy. For defeating these murderers. As Obama and Hillary Clinton would like dostum the wave. Okay the in. And releasing. And listen to what I'm about to say. And releasing terrorists. Will not end this war. Okay. On the contrary. It's simply emboldens. Terrorists and it prolongs the war. Under Barack Obama. We have no coherent strategy to protect our citizens. And under Hillary Clinton there will be more of the same. You got it right. I. I am infuriated. When our president. Dan's criticism. On our. Enemies. I am certain. I am deadly certain that we cannot win this war unless we are free. To call our enemies by name. Radical islamists. And sad old tyrants. A because. Because of Obama's ill advised actions the world. Has lost faith in American leadership. And not threats are mounting. Radical Islam. Metastasized. Seeing throughout the world. Lack. A complete lack of American military readiness to face multiple fronts. I'm told cyber threats. They struggling. Pay struggling United States economy. Aren't able to compete with a burgeoning Chinese economy. Growing nuclear capabilities. Of China. Rush job and North Korea. And lost some respect. And confidence. Around the globe. Have become the best enemies and no worst brands. I'm gonna say that again we have become the best enemies and the worst brands and act passed a change. Okay. These next forty years these next four years will be consumed by it apparel is that we now face. And this so called red lines or reset buttons were utter failures. Any Obama Clinton failed foreign policy list goes O nine and and. We need a commander in chief. Who understands these challenges. And is willing to do whatever it takes to meet them head on. Our adversaries. Must never again mock. American will power. And we must never give them a reason. To doubt our resolve so when. The most the most damaging example. The most damaging example of the president's failure to understand the consequences. Of putting political expediency. I had. Of national security is the emergence of a crisis. We cannot continue down this path. More lives are at stake. Our very life. Our way of life is in jeopardy. Our very existence is threatened. What keeps me up at night. What keeps me up at night. Is this sobering realization. That evil exists. The radicalization. Of Islam. And it's barbaric cars. That uses modernity. Did influence potentially millions. Around the world to join their cause she keep us all up at night. We mosques we mosques. Take seriously. The possibility. That these enemies have weapons of mass destruction. And intend to use them. That's a very serious issue. We mosques. Understand and define our enemies if we intend to defeat them. America. And Americans deserve no less. Because Obama chose to conceal. Because Obama chose to conceal the actions of journalists. Like Osama bin Laden and groups like crisis. And the role of Iran. In the rise of radical Islam. Americans are at a loss to fully understand the enormous threat that they pose against us. Now is that time for a leader that is honest. And strong. A leader. That's exactly right. A leader who'll stand up for America. And make EA ego and make absolutely. Clear. And make absolutely clear that if you cross her past you will pay them Bryant's. Okay. Gotta. We and we do not need a week. Spineless president. Who is more concerned about issuing. Apologies. Than in protecting Americans. We. Really do not need a reckless president. Who believes she ism. I'm no long after. Oh. Locker room and it's right. Yep that's right locker room. It's unbelievable. Time believing. Now I use I EU's past tag never Hillary. That's what I news.
