Loesch: Pres. Trump 'Said Islamic Extremism to Saudi Arabia's Face'
Dana Loesch praised President Trump for calling out the killing of Christians in the Middle East and for saying "Islamic extremism."
In his speech Sunday in Saudi Arabia, Trump referenced "Islamic terror" and "Islamic extremism," though the White House later said the president was "exhausted" and was supposed to have said "Islamist" in the prepared remarks.
"He said 'Islamic extremism' to Saudi Arabia's face," The Blaze host noted, adding that overall Trump conveyed a message that the "spine" has returned to American foreign policy.
The president also said:
And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians. Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear -- barbarism will deliver you no glory. Piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be fully condemned. And political leaders must speak out to affirm the same idea. Heroes don't kill innocents; they save them.
Loesch said Christian genocide is an "everyday reality" in the Middle East, and many war-torn areas face "absolute extermination" of Christians.
The president is reviving the U.S.'s role as the "bringer of peace," she told Fox Business anchor Stuart Varney.
In recent years ISIS has forced hundreds of thousands of Christians in Iraq and Syria to flee their homes or face the threat of "convert or die."
Trump's remarks came just a week after VP Mike Pence said "ISIS is guilty of nothing short of genocide against people of the Christian faith" in a speech in Washington, D.C.
