Sheriff David Clarke: “We Must Take the Lead to Root Out Terrorism”

As Sheriff David Clarke said, at least we have a president who is NOT out on an apology tour, like Obama went on. This is a worldwide problem, and theres only a matter of time before we must battle it again on our own soil. Thankfully we have a president ho realizes this.

Terrorism is not going away. We must either stand and face it, or cower and hope we aren’t killed in the process of acting like cowards. The latter may allow us to live longer, but that is no way to live, nor does it eliminate the problem. Like an infection, it will rage on and spread until it is killed in its tracks.

Sheriff David Clarke addressed the suicide bomber attack in Manchester, UK after an Ariana Grande concert on Fox News:

Trump said the attack underscores the central message of his foreign trip as he concluded a visit to the Holy Land on Tuesday, saying America’s allies have a mandate to “drive out” terrorism and “obliterate this evil ideology.”

“Doesn’t it make you proud just to listen and watch him on the world stage and how the world gets to see that we have a leader?” Clarke said. “He’s not out there on this apology tour.”

Clarke said that Trump knows that America must take the lead in the fight against terror.

“Sure, we need allies, but we must take the lead – whether we like it or not – to root out terrorism,” Clarke said. “The world’s going to have to come together. And this president knows that. … This is a worldwide problem now.”

He said it’s just a matter of time before we have an attack like this in the U.S., and that’s going to be a “game changer.”

Clarke stated that we are “going to have to stare this evilness down.” He is right. The only way to rid the infestation of these animals is to put our foot down. With Trump in office, we no longer negotiate with terrorists!
