Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is calling on President Obama to “remove the blinders” in the fight against “radical Islamic terrorism” following an attack in Nice, France, Thursday evening that left at least 80 dead.
“Tonight, our close ally France is reeling from yet another major attack apparently carried out by radical Islamic terrorists,” Cruz said in a statement late Thursday.
With the massacre in Nice being the third mass killing in France in the last year and a half, Cruz said “Let us make no mistake about it: Europe is under siege.”
“We have to remove the blinders and recognize this for what it is: radical Islamic terrorism,” he said, a clear jab at the president, who has been hesitant to tie recent terror attacks to the religion of Islam.
“We need to stop radicalized individuals from coming into the United States. We need to empower our law enforcement to target this specific threat, whether imported or homegrown,” Cruz continued. “After seven and a half years of the Obama administration denying this danger, it is getting worse, not better. Willful blindness is not a policy.”
