    Why did President Obama simply use the term "Terrorists"?

    Trump always uses the phrase: "Radical Islam Terrorists". Trump says the phrase intentionally. What is his reason\goal\perspective for using that specific phrase rather than just saying "Terrorists"

    Because linking Islam and terrorism makes the denouncing of all persons of color as bad easy because Religious prejudice is ugly. Those not Anglo and God fearing are all bad. Shouldn't be simplified but it's clear cut. The bad guys don't look like us is the message their side is navigating towards. Killings of Islamic terrorists becomes killing Islamic persons. A long and winding road is ahead.

    It is called using "the other." It makes those you oppose sub-human and therefore not worthy of being treated as a human.

    Is Trumping knowingly using the phrase because he fully understands the impact (as you guy's have identified), or is there some other explanation?

    Simply said: he's an "racist". In this country more crime is done by "non-terrorists" anyway; ask the guy who bombed the building in TX. I think "Islamitic terrorists are in the "minority" So why he's is so fanatic?, because he hates Muslims, Mexicans, Invalids etc. Only " Christian White Superior Billionaires" count for him.
