This week, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump accused President Barack Obama of being an ISIS sympathizer. Trump has also barred the Washington Post from covering his campaign and continues to insist all Muslims will be banned from entering the United States as soon as he becomes POTUS, at least for a period of time. GOP leaders are distancing themselves from Trump. Trump’s poll numbers are dropping strongly and that includes support of white males, his previously strongest constituency.
Has Trump now blown his chance at the White House, or will he survive and thrive here as well? Obama did finally address Trump tormenting him by accusing Obama of refusing to say “radical Islam.”
Our guest Fran Coombs is the Managing editor of Rasmussen Poll. Until 2 weeks ago he gave Trump a good chance of becoming POTUS. Now?
“Radical Islam.” While Barack Obama this week angrily derided Donald Trump’s demand Obama use the term “radical Islam” and is downplaying ISIS and the threat ISIS poses, the CIA director was telling a Congressional committee exactly the opposite. Is the term “radical Islam” legit or inflammatory and in a context for all Western nations, including Canada?
