During a speech about the Orlando terrorist attack Tuesday, President Barack Obama chided Donald Trump for his rhetoric about Muslims, and the presumptive Republican nominee responded during a rally in Greensboro, N.C.
“I watched President Obama today, and he was more angry at me than he was at the shooter,” the billionaire businessman told rally-goers.
During his speech earlier, Obama lambasted the real estate developer for his “dangerous” policy ideas and his proposed ban on Muslims entering the U.S., asking, “Do Republican officials actually agree with this?”
“Because that’s not the America we want,” he continued. “It doesn’t reflect our Democratic ideals. It will make us less safe.”
After seeing the president’s comments, Trump critiqued Obama’s “level of anger.”
“The level of anger … that’s the kind of anger he should have for the shooter and these killers that shouldn’t be here,” Trump said.
Trump added that “many people” agreed with his perspective, paraphrasing a political pundit he saw on Fox News Tuesday who suggested the Republican candidate was getting under Obama’s skin.
