Trump On Orlando Shooter’s Dad: ‘I’d Throw Him Out’

Hillary Clinton should have kicked out a mass murderer’s father who attended her recent rally in Kissimmee, Fla., according to Donald Trump.

The Republican presidential nominee, who often calls on police officers to evict protesters from his own campaign events, blasted the Clinton campaign for allowing Seddique Mateen to sit in plain view behind the Democratic candidate during her speech in Kissimmee, Fla. The Daily Mail noted that the man’s son, Omar Mateen, was the gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando, Fla., nightclub on June 12.

During a Fox News town hall on Wednesday, host Sean Hannity asked Trump: “You pointed out that this guy, the father of this Orlando shooter, and he was smiling, as you said – and Hillary, and you talked about her stupidity and her weaknesses – and he has explained his radical views. What do we do when we find somebody that has extreme views? Do we throw them the hell out?”

The candidate responded: “I’d throw him out. If you look at him, I’d throw him out. You know, I looked at him, and you look, he’s smiling; he had the red cap on. I thought it was one of my caps. I said, ‘No, make America great again.’ I don’t think so.” Just after the massacre occurred, Trump told Hannity that Clinton “did not disavow” the elder Mateen, adding: “If that were me, this would be a headline all over.”

Clinton’s staffers claimed they did not invite the killer’s father to the event. Mateen claims to be an enthusiastic supporter of the former secretary of state’s White House bid.
