Fuller POTUS quotes on use of radical Islam and Trump:

"The reason I am careful has nothing to do with political correctness and everything to do with defeating extremism."

"We are seeing how dangerous this kind of mindset and thinking can be. We are starting to see this kind of rhetoric and loose talk and sloppiness about who we are fighting where this can lead us. We now have proposals from the presumptive Republican nominee of the United States, the Republican nominee to bar all Muslims from immigrating into America."

"If we fall into the trap of painting all Muslims with a broad brush we are doing the terrorists work for them."

"Where does it stop?

"The Orlando killer, or the San Bernardino killers, the Fort Hood killer - they were all U.S. citizens. Are we going to start treating all Muslim Americans differently? Place them under special surveillance? Discriminate against them because of their faith? Do Republican officials actually agree with this? Because that's not the America we want. It doesn't reflect our ideals. It makes Muslim Americans feel like their government has betrayed them."

"If we fall into the trap of painting all Muslims with a broad brush we are doing the terrorists work for them. We don't have religious tests here. If we even abandon those values we will not only make it easier to radicalize people around the world we will betray... the very things that make us great. We can not let that happen. I will not let that happen."
