Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani criticized Barack Obama after the Orlando gay club shooting, saying he is "disturbed' and 'suspicious' by the his resistance to term such attacks as "radical Islamic terror."

Appearing on CNN, Giuliani defended Republican nominee Donald Trump's recent comments that Obama mysteriously lacks the "competitive zeal" when it comes to ISIS.

"I am very disturbed by the president's failure to use the word Islamic terrorism. I've been disturbed about it for years," Giuliani told CNN's Chris Cuomo.

"I believe that suspicious acts of terrorism weren't turned in in the days before the (Fort Hood) attack, and I was in San Bernardino around when it happened, so I'm not saying this from the back of my head. The words that the President uses are important," he said.
