Hillary Clinton finally cracked.

She said the one thing Barack Obama still refuses to say – and it has stunned political observers.

Donald Trump is claiming credit for her break with the Obama administration.

After every terror attack, a familiar scene plays out.

First, Obama makes a statement to the press while refusing to refer to an attack as an act of “radical Islamic terrorism”.

Hillary Clinton then follows suit and uses vague language like “radical jihadism” so as not to offend her liberal base.

But in the wake of the Orlando terror attack, she finally broke with Barack Obama and said the words “radical Islamic terrorism”.

Donald Trump claims this was all due to his unrelenting criticisms of Obama’s and Clinton’s weak response to the tragedy.

Politico reports:

“Clinton, in a telephone interview Monday, argued that “radical jihadism” and “radical Islamism” are identical in meaning, adding that she’s willing to say either, “but that’s not the point.”

 “Yes, she was shamed into it by me, and that’s because of the pressure I put on her,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity, according to excerpts of Tuesday’s show released to reporters.

 Indeed, Trump had called on Clinton to suspend her presidential campaign if she couldn’t utter the words “radical Islam.” He also suggested that President Barack Obama should resign for the same reason.

 “Well, they can” use the term, Trump told Hannity, “but they choose not to and a lot of people don’t understand why. Personally, because I’ve been — whatever the reason is, they can’t say it. Now, she said something yesterday because of me. I’m forcing her into this.”

 The language used by Obama and Clinton to describe terror attacks has long been criticized by conservatives.

But the Orlando attack – where the shooter actually pledged allegiance to ISIS before carrying out his murder spree – made their refusal to utter the words “radical Islamic terrorism” look ridiculous.

Now that she is the Democrat party nominee, Clinton may be attempting to pivot to the center by excusing radical jihadism and radical Islamic terrorism as really just the same thing.

But Obama’s response to Trump stood in stark contrast.

He lashed out at the presumptive Republican nominee in an angry tirade to reporters.

CNN reports on Obama’s harangue:

“That’s not the America we want,” he said. “It doesn’t reflect our democratic ideals. It will make us less safe.”

Obama also drew an implicit analogy between Trump’s call for a ban on Muslim travel and the most “shameful” moments in American history when the government had mistreated its people, adding that then Constitution prohibited religious tests.

“If we ever abandon those values, we would not only make it a lot easier to radicalize people here and around the world, but we would have betrayed the very things we are trying to protect,” Obama warned.

Trump responded by saying Obama sounds even angrier than the Orlando shooter.

At the end of the day, it was clear Trump’s attacks had gotten under Obama’s skin and that Hillary was forced to shift away from the Obama administration and say the words “radical Islamic terrorism”.
