On the campaign trail and in the early days of his presidency, President Trump heavily criticized President Obama and his administration for refusing to use the term "Islamic terrorism."
"We will unite the world to eradicate radical Islamic extremism," Trump said during his inauguration address in January.
But now that President Trump is approaching day 100 in the Oval Office, his administration isn't using the term.
In the aftermath of dual ISIS suicide attacks on two Egyptian Coptic Christian churches Sunday, Palm Sunday, the term is nowhere to be found.
From the President:
So sad to hear of the terrorist attack in Egypt. U.S. strongly condemns. I have great...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 9, 2017
...confidence that President Al Sisi will handle situation properly.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 9, 2017
From the White House Press Office:
The White House did not respond to inquiries about why the term "Islamic terrorism" isn't being used.
