Speaking to the troops at MacDill Air Force Base, in Tampa, Fla. on Tuesday, Barack Obama has just given his last speech to America’s armed forces, and he made so sure to let everyone know how to behave around their new President Trump!.
Well, that surely did not bring positive outcome.
Obama did not hesitate to take a swing at Trump at this occasion.
“The United States of America is not a place where some citizens have to withstand greater scrutiny, or carry a special ID card, or prove that they’re not an enemy from within,” he said.
Obama also pointed out that Trump’s aggressive anti-terrorism policies would not end up on a good note.
“The whole objective of these terrorists is to scare us into changing the nature of who we are and our democracy,” he said. “The fact is, people and nations do not make good decisions when they are driven by fear.”
And then, he defended the Islam.
“We are fighting terrorists who claim to fight on behalf of Islam. But they do not speak for over a billion Muslims around the world, and they do not speak for American Muslims, including many who wear the uniform of the United States of America’s military. If we stigmatize good patriotic Muslims, that just feeds the terrorists’ narrative,” he said.
He did not missed the chance to talk about his efforts to stand against ISIS and called these intentions a “long-term” policy.
“So rather than offer false promises that we can eliminate terrorism by dropping more bombs or deploying more and more troops or fencing ourselves off from the rest of the world, we have to take a long view of the terrorist threat,” he said.
Ultimately, he added that the climate change issues are causing serious problems, especially in the Middle East.
“A changing climate is increasing competition for food and water,” he said, leading to war in Syria.
