Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been known for his anti-war and global peace approach, but after the devastating Orlando shooting attack that took place Sunday night at the gay night club Pulse, which left 49 dead, Sanders is taking charge.
With more information revealing the shooter, Omar Mateen, had radical Islamic ideology in his blood and pledged his massacre to ISIS in a 911 call, Sanders is calling for the total annihilation and destruction of ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism. While typical liberal critics are ostracizing Donald Trump’s tweets about the Orlando shooting, many are praising Sanders’ war rhetoric-based tweet. The tweet can be viewed below:
From what is now known, this was a terrorist act by an ISIS sympathizer. That despicable and barbaric organization must be destroyed.
