Rep. Rohrabacher: ‘Isn’t It Wonderful To Have a President Who Can Use The Words Radical Islamic Terrorist?’
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) said Tuesday he believed the Trump administration will stand up to the regime in Iran and praised the new president for his willingness to use terms shunned by his predecessor when describing the threat posed by terrorists.
“Isn’t it wonderful to have a president that can use the words ‘radical Islamic terrorist?’” Rohrabacher said at a Capitol Hill briefing by the Organization of Iranian American Communities. “Isn’t that a wonderful thing? “
“That means we have sent a message to those radical Islamic terrorists that run Iran, that we have their number. We know what they are doing and we are not afraid to stand up to their type of tyranny.”
(In his inaugural address, Trump pledged to “unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.”)
