In another wide-ranging interview with talk-radio host Michael Savage, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested President Obama might not have a desire to defeat the Islamic jihadist group ISIS, and the real-estate billionaire shied away from declaring he would win the New Hampshire primary Tuesday.
Trump repeated his observation that President Obama refuses to identify the enemy as “radical Islamic terrorism,” insisting ISIS and other groups have nothing to do with Islam.
“It’s radical Islamic terrorism, and we have a president who won’t even use the words,” he said. “If you don’t use the words, you’re never going to get rid of the problem.
“Maybe he doesn’t want to get rid of the problem,” Trump said. “I don’t know exactly what’s going on.”
Turning to the New Hampshire primary, Savage noted Trump, who leads by as many as 21 points in the latest polls, is “way ahead of the pack.”
