Billionaire Donald Trump is apparently fed up with Barack Obama and his penchant for blaming America for everything, especially after the speech in which Obama spent more time talking about the presumptive GOP nominee than he did terrorism, and he brutally unloaded on the president.
Trump first went after Obama yesterday afternoon during a campaign stop in Greenville, North Carolina, where he noted that Obama seemed angrier with him than he did the actual shooting in Orlando, but that was just the start. In a statement to the Associated Press, Trump commented on Obama’s statement regarding the terrorist, and he all but flat-out said the president is committing treason.
In an email to the new outlet, Trump said that Obama “claims to know our enemy, and yet he continues to prioritize our enemy over our allies, and for that matter, the American people.”
“(W)hen I am president, it will always be America first,” the billionaire added.
The statement from Trump drew a lot of attention on social media, where MSNBC host Chris Hayes thought he was scoring political points with his tweet. However, after reading it, he seemed to have revealed something that the left has repeatedly denied.
" prioritize our enemy over our allies…" seems prrrettttty close to calling the sitting President treasonous. https://t.co/qF21MZ1x4R

The Republican Party offered a more toned down statement for the president’s comments, but still criticized the fact that Obama wants to infringe on the rights of law-abiding Americans rather than take a tougher stance on radical Islam.
“Nothing President Obama and Hillary Clinton are proposing in response to the Orlando terror attack would have prevented it, but they would infringe on Americans’ constitutional rights to due process and to own a gun. We should not make it harder for law-abiding Americans to defend themselves when radical Islamic terrorists are successfully launching attacks on U.S. soil. The terrorists win when they convince politicians they should take away our rights, and that is exactly what President Obama and Hillary Clinton are proposing.”
Sunday’s shooting was the deadliest terrorist attack we’ve had on our soil since 9/11, and Obama had the opportunity to show the country that when they attack us at home, all gloves are off and we’re going to do something about it, but he failed miserably. Instead he chose to lecture us about what we’re doing wrong, and said that we need to give up our rights so that he can continue doing nothing about the threats we face.
Judging by his comments alone, Obama thinks America is the problem, rather than the radical Islamists who are killing us. So perhaps Hayes is right, what he’s doing is treasonous, and Trump was merely pointing out for the rest of the world to see.
