President Trump‘s trip to Saudi Arabia is exposing the hypocrisy of his campaign rhetoric in a surreally clear fashion. Additionally, the moderate tone he took towards the Islamic faith during his visit to the Saudi kingdom has some of his most vocal supporters in a tizzy.
After news outlets pointed out that Trump failed to say the words “radical Islamic terror” during a his highly anticipated address to the Muslim world from the Kingdom, the fact that Trump called Islam “one of the world’s great faiths” was too much for some:
@mitchellvii Trump sounds just like a typical Washington cuck. The problem isn’t terrorism in general, the problem is Islam in particular.

@PaulVandenburgh Why didnt he say Radica Islamic Terrorism? Not once. Says Islam is a great faith – he has been neutered.

Snip of Trump’s speech in KSA.
1) Islam does wage war against every other faith.
2) We can see faith of victims – a lot are “kafir.” pic.twitter.com/3nb95eT9B8

Embarrassing watching people spin this Saudi trip, it’s not good. Look what we said *before* election abut Saudis. Principles.

@CassandraRules I hear the value of women in Saudi Arabia is rising. For the cost of only 3 women, you can now buy a goat!
