Jump for trump: irlandska tragedy threatens to change the course of American elections

Shooting in Orlando threatens to radically change the course of the U.S. presidential race, us media say. Favorites of the struggle for the post of head of the White house has already reacted to the massacre which claimed dozens of lives. If Democrat Hillary Clinton was extremely low-key, her opponent Donald trump has called the current US President Barack Obama to resign and said that Americans need to abandon political correctness.

Trump was outraged by Obama’s address to the nation, where he refrained from mentioning radical Islam in the context of the tragedy in a gay club “Pulse”. “Whether, finally, President Obama mentioned the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism”? – asked the Republican candidate. – If he does so, he must leave immediately in shameful resignation.” In another statement, trump said: “If we don’t act firmly and wisely, we will lose the country, because our leaders are weak. I’m trying to save lives and prevent another terrorist attack. We can’t afford to be politically correct.”

Hillary Clinton, who recently officially enlisted the support of Obama in the presidential election, showed a more restrained reaction. “We must redouble our efforts to protect the country from threats within and abroad, – said the candidate of the Democrats. – This means that we must defeat the terrorist group, working with our allies and partners to pursue terrorists wherever they are, resisting their attempts to recruit people here and around the world.”

It is likely that the attack in Orlando has to decide the outcome of the presidential race. “Strives trump one blow to decide the outcome of elections, – said the “MK” chief researcher of the Institute of USA and Canada studies, Vladimir Vassilyev. – When trump said that Obama should resign, he made application for the solution of such problems. He sent a strong signal to public opinion that we have before us the result of all the activities of Obama and the anti-terrorism, and foreign policy. When the attacks occurred in San Bernardino December 2, 2015, trump said we need a new President, and immediately. Today he reiterated that message in a new way. Events in San Bernardino, indeed, played a catalytic role in the election campaign trump. It was a powerful springboard, who brought trump into the race lead the Republicans. In fact, trump on this wave and left. Today it happened the second incident, which can play the role of a springboard at this stage of the presidential race.”

The expert explained what the problems revealed irlandska tragedy. “There are intertwined two things, – said Vladimir Vasiliev. First — that is, the effectiveness of the policy in Afghanistan because a terrorist came from there. The second is ISIS, which has declared its involvement in the tragedy. Whether he does or not, but in American public consciousness is the attack that will connect with LIH. Here is a concrete evidence of the ineffectiveness of the American struggle with the group, what Republicans have said for a long time. This is a dagger blow trump. It’s even a double whammy, because four days ago, Obama was blessed Hillary in the race.

This is an argument in favour of the Democrats out of the race. What will be the reaction of Democrats, we have to see, but, in my opinion, the statement of trump is very serious. The Democrats can also say that the attack was made possible because of people like trump. He past six months, provoking racial hatred, violence, escalate the situation. It is in this context made possible the attack. But because Americans are scared because this happened in Florida (in America it’s a floating state, and the struggle for him is very serious), as it is the biggest act of terrorism after September 11 is conclusive proof of the failure of Obama’s policy”.
