Hannity

Trump: What happened in Orlando is a disgrace; Time for Obama to face the problem of radical Islam?

This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," June 14, 2016. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST:  Welcome to "Hannity," and this is a Fox News Alert.  New details tonight in the ongoing Orlando terror investigation.  Donald Trump will join us in a few minutes.

But first, federal law enforcement sources confirm to Fox News that the wife of the Orlando nightclub terrorist, Omar Mateen, knew of her husband's sinister plan and did nothing to stop it.  Now, tonight, FoxNews.com also learned that federal prosecutors have assembled a grand jury to investigate if Mateen's wife should be charged as an accessory to 49 counts of murder and 53 counts of attempted murder.

Now, prosecutors are also seeking to charge the wife with failing to notify law enforcement of the terror attack and with lying to federal agents.

In Orlando tonight with the very latest is our own Steve Harrigan -- Steve.

STEVE HARRIGAN, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT:  Sean, a lot of the police roadblocks have been pulled up.  Local businesses are starting to open up back here again.  And the cars, the cars of the victims killed on Sunday morning -- they're starting to get towed away now.  We can see them with the tow trucks in the distance.

As far as the investigation goes, it's really now focusing on the days leading up to that massacre on Sunday morning.  They're starting to look at where the killer was in those days leading up to the attack.  He was buying guns, he was buying ammunition, he was buying a holster, and he was casing the sites of possible attacks, not only the gay nightclub, the Pulse, but also several Walt Disney properties, as well.

And more and more attention now is being turned to his wife, 30-year-old Noor Salman, his wife of three years.  What did she know and when did she know it?  Fox News can confirm that she did know her husband was planning to carry out a brutal attack.  She did not tell anyone about that attack.

A grand jury has been convened.  She could be facing charges tomorrow as an accomplice to 49 counts of murder.  Sean, back to you.

HANNITY:  All right, Steve.  Thanks so much, in Orlando tonight.

Here with reaction, author of "Defeating Jihad, the Winnable War," the distinguished chair of military theory at Marine Corps University, Dr.
Sebastian Gorka.

Let's look at this attack.  Let's look at it from a law enforcement standpoint.  Here they had all the information about this guy.  He said he was part of al Qaeda.  He said he was part of Hezbollah, cheered on 9/11, all these indicators, on a watch list, taken off a watch list.  Big mistake?

SEBASTIAN GORKA, "DEFEATING JIHAD" AUTHOR:  Well, clearly, it is a big mistake because this man has killed 49 Americans.  Yes, we don't know exactly how the decision was made.  I work with members of the FBI, and they're good people.  They're patriots.

Most of the big problems we've seen in the last seven years come out of the DOJ, the DOJ that puts the political correctness matrix on top of the FBI.

HANNITY:  OK.  If the FBI, the DOJ, Homeland Security -- if they knew about the Orlando terrorist, they ultimately did nothing.  They didn't follow up on the guy.  You know, are we supposed to believe that the Syrian refugees that the president wants to bring into the country and Hillary Clinton wants to bring into the country that they say they can vet properly, even though our intelligence officials say ISIS will infiltrate -- how dangerous is that?

GORKA:  Hugely dangerous.  ISIS has stated in their English language publications, Sean, that they will and they are using the refugee streams.  
We saw in Europe, we saw people using false Syrian passports exploiting the refugee streams to execute the attacks that were just like the attack in Orlando.  So we don't have to hypothesize.  It's happened already, and they say they want to do more.

HANNITY:  One of the things I like about your book is you say we can defeat jihad.  OK, we have Chattanooga, we have Boston, we have San Bernardino, now we have Orlando.  We had Belgium.  We had Paris.

We don't seem to be winning this war, and a president that is hellbent and passionately today saying he doesn't have to say or identify radical Islam for what it is.

GORKA:  But passionate in his petulance.  That speech was outrageous!

HANNITY:  That's a great line.  He was petulant today.

GORKA:  Totally!  He said that, What difference does it make what we call it?  Well, what if you went to a doctor's clinic with a serious illness, you had tuberculosis, and the doctor says, I'm going to call what you have the flu or a common cold.  Here's a couple of aspirins.  Go home.

HANNITY:  What if in World War II, we didn't identify Nazism for what it is or imperial Japan for the enemy that they are?

GORKA:  This is -- this is...

HANNITY:  Or Reagan saying the evil empire!

GORKA:  Right.  This is when you have to bring Americans together.  Those people weren't gay people, they were Americans!

HANNITY:  By the way, under sharia, radical Islamists, if it was a group of women dancing...

GORKA:  Right!

HANNITY:  ... they would feel justified in doing this.

GORKA:  Right, listening to music.

HANNITY:  Listening to music.

GORKA:  The Taliban banned music in Afghanistan!

HANNITY:  All right, I'm trying to understand, it's pathological at this point to me, the president, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats...

GORKA:  It is.

HANNITY:  It's inexplicable.  It's -- you know, I don't understand this mysterious reluctance and resistance to identify an enemy.

I want to play some things for you.  Let's first go to The New York Times's Nicholas Kristof and they talked about Obama when he was in a Muslim school.  He said, "He recalled" -- in a first rate accent, by the way -- "the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first rate accent in a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated, and it'll give Alabama voters a heart attack, but Mr. Obama described the call to Muslim prayer as one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset."

Now, I'm going to play for you back to back his comments about Islam and his comments about Christianity, and I want you to respond.  Let's roll the tape.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA:  The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam.

And I'm also proud to carry with me the goodwill of the American people and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country, As Salaam Aleikum.

Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism, it is an important part of promoting peace.

Our enemies respect no religious freedom.  Al Qaeda's cause is not Islam.  
It's a gross distortion of Islam.

The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.

ISIL is not Islamic.  No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim.

We've reaffirmed again and again the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam.  Islam teaches peace.

Remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.  Slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.

On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love, and I have to say that sometimes, when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  He won't say "radical Islam."  You heard his comments about Islam, terrible deeds in the name of Christ.

GORKA:  Horrific!  What nation are we?  Who were the founding fathers?  
What creator are they referring to in our founding documents?  Are they referring to Allah or some nameless blob?  No.  They're referring to the God of the New Testament.

HANNITY:  Judeo-Christian values.

GORKA:  Absolutely!  Why is the sympathy always for the other?  Why is America the problem, Sean?

HANNITY:  OK, now let's add to this an Iranian deal where you give the number one state sponsor of terror $150 billion.  Let's add to that American bloodshed for Ramadi and Mosul and Fallujah and Tikrit.  Let's add to that Muhammad Morsi, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, becomes the head, the president of Egypt, and he gives them tanks, F-16s and $1 billion-plus, a guy that referred to the Israelis as descendants of apes and pigs.

He's on the wrong side all of the time!

GORKA:  And when a man comes along who's a Muslim who says, I'm not letting the Brotherhood steal my country -- I've met President Sisi.  What do we do?  We reject him!

HANNITY:  President Sisi had has more courage to stand up to radicalism than the president of the United States!

GORKA:  He's on the front lines.

HANNITY:  But here's my question.  Why?  What is it?

GORKA:  Look, let's leave conspiracy theories to the side.

HANNITY:  It's not a conspiracy!  It's inexplicable!

GORKA:  I'll give you the explanation.  This man comes from a certain ideological background, OK?  His buddy was Bill Ayers.  He grew up with a certain...

HANNITY:  Bernadine Dohrn...

GORKA:  Right!

HANNITY:  ... Reverend Wright...

GORKA:  Right.

HANNITY:  ... ACORN (ph) Alinsky...

GORKA:  Right.

HANNITY:  ... Frank Marshall Davis.

GORKA:  And what's the common denominator?  America is the problem.  
Whatever the issue is, we are the problem.  And as a result, he's always going to sympathize with who?  The bad guys.  This idea that this guy had a twisted sexual identity in Orlando, he was suffering -- we're going to make the perpetrator out to be the victim eventually!  It's unconscionable, Sean!

HANNITY:  I don't think anybody else in the media will put that together, what we just did.

GORKA:  No.  And I'm glad you did it.  That's powerful.

HANNITY:  Sebastian, good to see you.  Thank you.

GORKA:  Thank you, Sean.

HANNITY:  All right, we continue on this busy news night tonight right here on "Hannity."

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA:  We fall into the trap of painting all Muslims with a broad brush and imply that we are at war with an entire religion, then we are doing the terrorists' work for them.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  That was a petulant president earlier today lecturing his critics on why he does not use the term "radical Islam."  That's next.

Also tonight...

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DONALD TRUMP, R-PRESUMPTIVE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE:  I watched President Obama today, and he was more angry at me than he was at the shooter!  And many people said that.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Pretty amazing.  Donald Trump, choice words for President Obama.  
He will join us tonight.  The presumed GOP nominee will be with us as we continue tonight on "Hannity."

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  And welcome back to "Hannity."  Donald Trump -- he's going to join us in just a few minutes.

But first, earlier today, an unhinged President Obama -- well, he lashed out at Donald Trump and those who dare to question why he refuses to use the simple term "radical Islam."  Watch this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA:  For a while now, the main contribution from some of my friends on the other side of the aisle have made in the fight against ISIL is to criticize this administration and me for not using the phrase "radical Islam."

This is a political distraction.  And that kind of yapping has not prevented folks across government from doing their jobs, disrupting plots and protecting all Americans, including politicians who tweet and appear on cable news shows.

We now have proposals from the presumptive Republican nominee for president of the United States to bar all Muslims from emigrating to America.  And if we fall into the trap of painting all Muslims with a broad brush and imply that we are at war with an entire religion, then we are doing the terrorists' work for them.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Here with reaction, author of "See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government's Submission to Jihad," former DHS employee Philip Haney.  Philip, now you worked -- you started working for DHS in what, 2003, correct?

PHILIP HANEY, FORMER DHS EMPLOYEE:  Yes, I was a founding member of DHS.

HANNITY:  And part of your job is you were looking for terror ties.  For example, you would identify people with terror links in the early 2000s.  
You were profiling people with links to all of these terror groups.  That was your job, right?

HANEY:  Yes.  We were connecting the dots.  We were focusing on individuals and organizations, networks across both United States and with affiliations in foreign countries.

HANNITY:  Then six years into your tenure, in 2009, you were ordered to scrub the records of Muslims with these terror ties by our government.  Who told you to do that?

HANEY:  I was directed from DHS headquarters.  It's important to keep in mind that that was one year after the November 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terror trial in American history that irrefutably proved that these individuals from the Muslim Brotherhood front groups were in direct financial support of Hamas.  So they knew.

HANNITY:  And that's the -- that's the trial where CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator, if I'm not mistaken.

HANEY:  Islamic Society of North America and the North American Islamic Trust, two -- three major groups.

HANNITY:  OK, so you were going your job identifying individuals.  You built up a computer database.  Obama becomes president.  You were literally ordered to scrub the names of Muslims with terror ties that you had worked so hard to find.

You believe you could have stopped what happened in Orlando and San Bernardino had you not been ordered by Obama's DHS to do this.  Is that true?

HANEY:  Well, that was the first -- what I call the first great purge.  That was in 2009 with more than 800 records.  The case that I'm referring to about stopping the San Bernardino and now related to the Orlando was three years later, in 2012.  It was a larger case called the (INAUDIBLE) jimad (ph) initiative.  And it was another network separate from but related to in some ways the Muslim Brotherhood network that we just talked about.

HANNITY:  So in the case of San Bernardino, Syed Farook and his wife -- you had identified that mosque as a place where you believed we should have been paying attention to, correct?

HANEY:  Yes.  There's an entire network of those kind of mosques across the United States.  And I found out a couple days ago that the mosque in Ft.
Pierce is also related to the same network.

HANNITY:  Let me...

HANEY:  Two big cases now.

HANNITY:  Let me ask you bluntly, could San Bernardino -- you were doing this great work, and I applaud you for what you have done.  You were told to scrub, literally, the records of Muslims with terror ties.  You had to do your job or you'd be fired.

Do you believe in your heart that the information you had gathered, if you had kept that information, you might have been able to prevent the terrorist attacks in both San Bernardino and Orlando?

HANEY:  Well, to clarify, I wasn't told to scrub.  My agency deleted them themselves.  But yes, I believe I have a plausible premise that we could have stopped it by two major ways.  Either Syed Farook would have been put on the no-fly list and not allowed to travel or his pending fiancee would have been denied a visa because of his affiliation with an organization with plausible ties to terrorism.  That's at least two different ways...

HANNITY:  So can I repeat this one other way?  You did your job and other people did their jobs, and in comes the Obama administration, and they wipe out all the work that could have potentially saved the lives of Americans.  
Is that a fair statement?

HANEY:  Yes, it's a fair statement.  My records were tagged, and I got an e-mail from all 67 of them when they were deleted, and they came back to my inbox exactly the moment when they were entirely deleted from the system.

HANNITY:  Oh, my God!  This is unconscionable!  Phil Haney, thank you for telling the truth and speaking out.  We appreciate it.

HANEY:  You're welcome.

HANNITY:  It shocks the conscience.

And next here tonight on "Hannity"...

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TRUMP:  I watched President Obama today, and he was more angry at me than he was at the shooter!  And many people said that.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Donald Trump at a rally tonight hits back at President Obama.  We spoke with Donald Trump earlier today.  That interview is coming up next.

Plus, Democrats politicizing the terror attack in Orlando.  They're using it to push their anti-gun agenda.  We'll check in with Bo Dietl, Sheriff David Clarke, John Lott, Jr., and much more tonight here on "Hannity."

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  And welcome back to "Hannity."  So earlier today, I sat down with the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump.  I asked him about the Orlando terror attack, the president's inability to say "radical Islamic terrorism" and what needs to be done to better protect Americans from the growing threat of radical Islam.  Watch this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Mr. Trump, thanks for being with us.  Obviously, the worst attack on our homeland since 9/11.  I want to ask you a couple things.  The FBI actually is looking into a thousand people, all across the 50 states, that are ISIS-related.  Those are the investigations that are going on now.  But the FBI knew this guy claimed at work that he was connected to al Qaeda and Hezbollah, reports he cheered after 9/11.  And they looked into him for 10 months.  He got free.  How do we fix that?

TRUMP:  Well, they had a bad day.  I'm a big fan of the FBI, and things can happen, and I guess they didn't have anything concrete on him, and you can understand it.  But we have to really increase our intelligence gathering in this country.  We have people in this country that are just as bad as him, worse than him.

HANNITY:  Right.

TRUMP:  And they're plotting things right now, and we're letting more in.  
Hillary Clinton's letting everybody in.  She has a 550 percent increase over Obama.  She wants to let that many more people in from Syria and from various places.

Now, I just think it's insane because we don't know what's going on.  We have no control over it.  But you have people right now, Sean, worse -- in my opinion, worse and maybe with bigger minds (ph) than this savage that just got killed.  So -- so I mean, the concept of allowing more people in when you know that many of them are going to have problems and going to cause trouble is incredible.

HANNITY:  When you call for a temporary ban on refugees, people coming from countries, you -- I'm sure you know that the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, the FBI director, Comey, the assistant FBI director, Steinbach (ph), the House Homeland Committee chairman, Mike McCaul, Obama's former special envoy to defeat ISIS, General Allen -- they all said and ISIS has said that they will infiltrate the refugee population.

Now, the president insists we take these people in.  Hillary's all for it.  
To me, that's gambling with people's lives, the American people's lives.  
Why would they ever risk that?

TRUMP:  Sean, on the migration, on the line, the big line with thousands and tens of thousands and even millions of people -- you had people with cell phones with the ISIS flag on them, OK?  Number one, how did they get cell phones?  Number two, why are there so many men, young, strong men, but they've got cell phones with an ISIS flag on them, many of them.  And the press doesn't want to report it.

I mean, what are we doing?

HANNITY:  It happens...

TRUMP:  There's no common sense.  There's no -- there's no strength.  
There's no common sense.  Look at what's going on in Germany.  It's a mess.  
It's a total mess.  People living in Germany want to leave.

HANNITY:  Yes.  ISIS infiltrated in Paris.  We saw the result.  ISIS infiltrated in Belgium.  We saw the result.  Our own intelligence officials are warning us that ISIS will infiltrate here.  And ISIS has said they'll infiltrate here.

So my question is -- it seems that the narrative has gotten off base.  I think the question has now become, why was the president and Hillary Clinton willing to gamble with the lives of the American people?  Because to me, that is an unnecessary risk.  Do you think the country miscalculated as it relates to the danger?

TRUMP:  Well, totally miscalculated, but it's not even a miscalculation.  
It's common sense.  You're letting people in from Syria.  They have no documentation.  We don't know where they come from, really.  This could be the all-time great Trojan horse.  We'll bring the Trojan horse out of retirement.  This could be the all-time great Trojan horse.  We're allowing these people -- and Hillary Clinton wants many more to come in.  Obama's got a certain number.  She wants to increase it by 550 percent.

Is this insanity or what?  Now, I don't think it's going to work.  I think the people are too smart.  The press covers my stuff -- whatever I say, they cover totally inaccurately.  That's why I like to do live television, actually, because I get covered totally inaccurately.  If I say something, they make it sound like, you know, totally different...

HANNITY:  We've never edited you.  We don't edit you.

TRUMP:  No, no, you're great.  And I appreciate that.  And I love shows that don't edit, but I like live television because on live television, you say what you have to say.

but I give -- I just terminated, took away the press credentials of The Washington Post.  I mean, they said -- they made the statement that I said that Obama -- essentially, Obama went in and shot the people.  I mean, what they do, that is the most dishonest paper.  But there are so many dishonest papers.  Washington Post is a joke, OK?  It's a joke.

HANNITY:  Look at The New York Times.  But that boomeranged back in your favor because the women mentioned in article, they all came out for Trump.

TRUMP:  Those women were so incredible, I'd like to give them medals.  They deserve it.  They write an article like I was bad to these women.  They all came back, they say, We really like Donald.  He was great.  He was a great guy.  I mean, you're talking about many years ago.

It was such a false article.  And yet, a week later, the same guy, the same writer, who's a real sleaze -- but the same writer wrote another story on something else highly inaccurately.

So you know, you really have to get the word out yourself because the press is really dishonest.  I don't mean, like, they made a mistake or they didn't quite cover it wrong.  They are so dishonest.  You can make a speech, a perfect speech, everything said perfectly, and they will try and find things that maybe this or maybe that.  So I mean, I hope the people and I hope the voters know what's going on in this country.

HANNITY:  Let me move to Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.  And I want to go through some things with you.

TRUMP:  Go ahead.

HANNITY:  She took up to $25 million from Saudi Arabia.  She took up to $5 million from the government of Brunei and Qatar and Oman and the UAE.  I want to talk about their rights.  In the three cases of Saudi Arabia, Brunei and Qatar, they actually allow the assassination or the execution of gays and lesbians.

TRUMP:  Right.  That's right.

HANNITY:  In Saudi Arabia, women can't drive, they can't vote, they can't go out in public without a male's permission.  They're told what to wear.  
They have a morality police, four male eyewitnesses for rape under sharia.  
And my question to you is, she never until yesterday criticized these countries.  She never until yesterday said "radical Islam."

TRUMP:  And that's because of the pressure...

HANNITY:  She was shamed into it.

TRUMP:  That's because -- yes, she was shamed into it by me and that's because of the pressure I put on her.  But here's a woman that takes all of this money from these countries, and then she says she's loves women and she's totally with the gays, and the -- you know, whatever group you might talk about, the gay, lesbian.

Now, let me just tell you, Sean, how can she be?  They want to kill because the throw them off buildings.  They actually throw gays of buildings, and she's taking money and I'm calling for her to give back all of the money she's taken from these countries.  OK?  I'm much better for women than she is.  I'm much better for gays...

HANNITY:  What does that say, though, until yesterday, she got all of these millions of dollars from these countries, and she never criticized their policies, their abusive policies to women, minorities, gays.  They're a country that does not allow the free practice of religion.  There are no temples.  There are no churches.  There's no Christianity in these countries.  But she takes their money.  Did they buy her silence?

HANNITY:  $45 million from one.  Look, look, they bought her off.  She's paid off.  Politicians -- but she's paid off, 100 percent paid off.  And until we brought this up -- and I brought it up, and then she talks about women -- well, let me tell you, I'm much better for women than Hillary Clinton will ever be.

HANNITY:  Here's a big broader question.  If you grow up under sharia law, as a man, you think you have the right to tell a woman how to dress, whether she can drive a car, whether she can go to school or whether she can go to work and she would need four male eyewitnesses for rape -- in some cases, they don't even believe in marital rape.

So the question is, if you grow up there and you want to come to America, how do we vet somebody's heart and ascertain if they're coming here for freedom or if they want to proselytize, indoctrinate and bring their theocracy with them?

TRUMP:  Assimilation has been very hard.  It's almost -- I won't say nonexistent, but it gets to be pretty close.  And I'm talking about second and third generation.  They come -- they don't -- for some reason, there's no real assimilation.

HANNITY:  Right.

TRUMP:  And you see it all over the place.  And you know, what are we going to do?  I'm not even talking about assimilation.  I'm not talking about that.  I'm talking about, there is a percentage of people that want to do what this maniac did in Orlando.  There's a percentage of people.

That percentage becomes -- the number of people become more and more as we take in thousands and thousands of more people.  There's a hate that's going on that's unbelievable, OK?  Unbelievable.  They don't mind dying.  That's a hate that's going on that's unbelievable.  And we allow it to happen.  They use the internet better than we do.  ISIS is using the internet better than we do.

HANNITY:  Why can't the president and Hillary Clinton utter the words "radical Islamic terrorism"?

TRUMP:  Well, they can, but they choose not to.  And a lot of people don't understand why.  Personally, it doesn't -- I mean, whatever the reason is, they can't say it.  Now, she said something yesterday, you know, because of me.  I'm forcing her into this...

HANNITY:  Shamed.  I would say she was shamed into it.

TRUMP:  Well, she was shamed into it, but she didn't really say the words.  And she said, I would be willing to use those words, but she didn't do it.

HANNITY:  Six months ago, she said she wouldn't use them.

TRUMP:  Sean, Hillary Clinton, especially in these times, will be a terrible president.  Her Secret Service agent said she's a disaster.  She's a total disaster.  

HANNITY:  That book's coming out.  

TRUMP:  She doesn't have the temperament.  She talks about my temperament.  My temperament is great.  It's a tough temperament, but that's what we need.  Her temperament, she's wacky.  

HANNITY:  One last question.  Four big issues in light of what happened with this terrorist attack in Orlando.  Energy independence I think is a big part.  Countries we have been dependent on that hate our guts.  Homeland security, I think certainly the issue of our defense, our intelligence capabilities, there's such big differences.  The economy is bad.  How big is this issue versus the economy?  These are massive challenges.  

TRUMP:  Well, it's turning out, I'm doing very well on the economy in the polls.  I'm leading on the economy by bar.  I'll produce jobs.  I'm going to bring jobs back.  I'm not going to let countries take our businesses.  There's going to be consequences when they do.  Believe me, they're not taking our businesses to the extent, and we're going to take their businesses.  Businesses are going to come back into our country.  So we're going to take care of that and the economy.  

But on any form of energy, we have so much energy right now under our own ground that modern techniques have, you know, found.  So we don't need the Middle East like we --

HANNITY:  We don't need them at all.  

TRUMP:  We needed it so badly years ago.  But we're protecting Saudi Arabia.  We're spending $4 trillion, maybe $5 trillion total in the Middle East over the last 15 years, could be more than that.  We have to rebuild our country.  Our country is a mess.  Our airports are no good.  Our roads are no good.  They're falling apart.  

I was with somebody the other day, one of the biggest trucking companies.  He said, Mr. Trump, we can't drive on the roads anymore they're so bad.  They're ruining their trucks.  They're hitting massive potholes and really ruining it.  

So we have a lot of issues, but the economy is a biggie.  What's happened now with the attack, and there will be others because we don't have the vigilance.  And the Muslims are not turning in.  If you look at what's going on -- they're not turning people in.  

HANNITY:  Borders, refugees, certainly -- the energy independence and intelligence, huge differences.  You know, I know that the president and Hillary Clinton have made this issue about guns.  But here's the interesting thing.  When Muhammad Morsi, the former Muslim Brotherhood head, referred to the Israelis as descendants of apes and pigs, Obama and Hillary Clinton gave him F-16s, tanks, and $1 billion U.S. dollars.  So if they're really concerned about weaponry in the hands of radicals, why would they give him all of that equipment?  

TRUMP:  Because I think that Obama treats others far better than he treats Israel.  He treats Israel so badly, I have many Jewish friends, and they raise money for him and they raise money for the Democrats.  I say, what are you people doing?  Why would you do this?  That Iran deal was the end of it.  That is the worst thing, perhaps will go down as the worst --

HANNITY:  Hillary was part of that, too.  The negotiations started then.  

TRUMP:  She was a part of it.  She started it.  It was her then and John Kerry took it over.  It is the worst deal for them that I can imagine.  

So, look, we have a big election coming up.  We have two very obvious choices and there's one obvious one, and there's one obviously not so good.  
And I will tell you, I'll do a great job.  So many of these issues, Sean, you look at energy, you look at borders, you look at the military.  Our military is totally depleted.  It's depleted.  We're using jets where they have to get parts from used old planes.  You look at all of these digit things.  Those are my issues.  So we're going to see what happens.  We're going to see what happens.  What happened in Orlando is a disgrace.  That should never, ever be allowed.  

HANNITY:  And preventable.  

TRUMP:  It's totally preventable.  It's totally preventable.  

HANNITY:  Mr. Trump, thank you for being with us.  

TRUMP:  Thank you very much.  Appreciate you.  

HANNITY:  Thanks.

HANNITY:  And coming up, the left is politicizing the terrorist attack in Orlando.  They're now using the tragedy to push their radical anti-gun agenda.  When we come back, Bo Dietl, Sheriff David Clarke, John Lott Jr., they'll join us.  Stay with us tonight on "Hannity."

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA:  Stop talking about being tough on terrorism.  Actually be tough on terrorism and stop making it easy as possible for terrorists to buy assault weapons.  Reinstate the assault weapons ban.  Make it harder for terrorists to use these weapons to kill us.  

CLINTON:  The terrorist in Orlando was a definition of the wrong hands.  
And weapons of war have no place in our streets.  

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  All right, that was the president and Hillary Clinton earlier today using the terror attacks in Orlando to push their anti-gun agenda.  
Clearly they don't get it.  

Joining us now, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, former NYPD detector Bo Dietl, and president of Crime Prevention Research Center, John Lott.  

Here's what I don't understand, John.  So let me see if I get this straight.  These -- this is the same president, same secretary of state, that negotiated with the number one state sponsor of terror, ended up giving them $150 billion to spin their centrifuges and make nuclear weapons, the same people that gave the former head of the Muslim brotherhood F-16s, tanks, and $1 billion, the guy that referred to Israelis as descendants of apes and pigs, and they're worried about Bo Dietl, Sean Hannity, John Lott having a pistol, seriously?  

JOHN LOTT JR., CRIME PREVENTION RESEARCH CENTER:  With that much money they're going to get all sorts of weapons to terrorists no matter what types of security you put in there.  I just don't understand.  There's a simple thing they could try to do here, and that is get rid of these gun- free zones.  I mean, every time --

HANNITY:  Every time.  Yes.  

LOTT:  Since 1950, with 3 exceptions, every one of these attacks has been a gun-free zone.  We just had two months ago in Detroit a father was concerned about his son being involved in ISIS, contacted the FBI.  The FBI put a wiretap on him.  And they had him on tape.  He was plotting to go after one of the largest churches in Detroit.  He said the reason he wanted to go after something like that, because he had checked and knew people there didn't have guns.  They weren't allowed to be able to carry.  

HANNITY:  And you know this, you studied this.  Bo, former president Clinton today, his wife obviously agrees with him, actually said it was a good thing that Orlando club goers didn't have arms so they could shoot back or more people would have gotten hurt.  Now, if you and myself and our friend Sheriff Clarke were there, we would have fought back and we might have been able to save lives.  

BO DIETL, FORMER NYPD DETECTIVE:  Absolutely.  I listened to the president today and I really got sick.  The fact of the matter, ISIS says kill infidels any way you can.  Use your Ford 150, whatever you have to do.  
Look what happened in Paris just yesterday where they killed the cop and his wife.  

HANNITY:  Oh, it was horrible.  

DIETL:  They stabbed them to death.  

HANNITY:  You're right.  

DIETL:  You know what they'll do, if they can't get their hands on a gun, they'll use a fertilizer bomb.  

HANNITY:  They have the strongest gun control laws in the entire world and look what happened.  

LOTT:  All the weapons in France last year that were used in the four attacks, all of them were illegal.  

DIETL:  Their beliefs are to kill the infidels.  

HANNITY:  Sheriff, if I'm in San Bernardino, if I'm in Orlando or Chattanooga, if I'm anywhere where there's a terror attack, I would really like it -- I don't mean this in a bad way -- that somebody like yourself is there or somebody like myself who's carried a firearm my entire adult life or Bo Dietl because I believe at least we'd have a chance when they drop their clip to get them and prevent death.  

SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE, MILWAUKEE COUNTY:  Sean, there's a reason why the symbol of the Democratic Party is a jackass, because they're not real smart, after listening to President Obama and Mr. Bill Clinton with those foolish statements.  It's their automatic default.  You know that, Sean.  
They drag this thing out.  They're a one-trick pony.  You could have a hurricane sweep through the southeast section of the country, and you know what their reaction would be?  We need more gun control.  It's the NRA's fault.  That's all they know.  

John hit the nail right on the head.  Gun-free zones are killing fields.  
When you have a gun-free zone, you are leading people to slaughter.  In the case of a nightclub, it's a little different because you have people drinking, some people are inebriated.  You got to be a little careful about allowing people to be armed in an intoxicated state.

However, what they could have done, should have done, even in hindsight, is they should have had armed security on the premise, because I'm telling you right now, you know, the death toll would have been a lot lower had there been armed security to counter that thing until the police got there.  

LOTT:  And there are 40 states that allow people to carry permit concealed handguns in bars.  There's no problems anybody can point to.  Maybe you can say if you carry your gun, you're not allowed to drink there, like a designated driver.  But these people who go and get the permits are incredibly law-abiding.  If they could point to even a couple cases --

HANNITY:  John, I've had a carry permit in New York, Rhode Island, California, Alabama, Georgia.  I carried it since I'm 20 years old.  I was trained.  I was a marksman better than Bo at the age of 11.  I'm kidding, by the way.  

DIETL:  The problem here again is, let's look at our inner cities, Baltimore, Chicago, where we have the highest murder rate.  These guns are the illegal guns killing our minority children in our cities.  

HANNITY:  Horrible.  

DIETL:  And I don't hear a damn word out of Obama's mouth about the deaths in his hometown of Chicago.  I get angry when he talks like that.  

HANNITY:  Last word, Sheriff Clarke.  

CLARKE:  The thing about gun control is any conversation about gun control has to go along the lines of two things.  It has to pass constitutional muster.  And it has to be achievable.  If you look at those two points with the gun control ideas, these inane ideas from the Democrats on the left --

HANNITY:  What an irony.  They'll give money to the Iranians, the number one state sponsor of terror, and they'll give the president of Egypt who's a former head of the Muslim Brotherhood weapons, F-16s, tanks, and money.  
It's insane.  Thank you all for being with us.  

CLARKE:  To be a democrat is to be hypocritical, Sean.  You know that.  

HANNITY:  I think you nailed it in the beginning.  They're jackasses.  

LOTT:  They disarm the poor people who need the guns the most.  

HANNITY:  In the inner cities.  

DIETL:  And the choice for Donald Trump is there.  Either Donald Trump or a continuation of Obama.  

HANNITY:  Coming up, we have more of President Obama's ridiculous comments from earlier today.  Now, do Muslim and religious leaders, do they need to combat radical Islamism now, and will they?  Straight ahead.  

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  Welcome back to HANNITY.  Joining us now on the Orlando terror attack and much more, author of "Inside Jihad, How Radical Islam Works, Why It Should Terrify Us, and How to Defeat It," former Islamic extremist Dr. Tawfik Hamid is with us, and also FOX News contributor Father Jonathan Morris.  I want to go to the issue of Hillary Clinton.  Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, $25 million from Saudi Arabia, up to $5 million from the government of Brunei, $5 million from Qatar, $5 million from Oman,$5 million from the UAE.  The first three, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, and Qatar, they have the death penalty if you're gay or lesbian, LGBT.  She claims to be the champion.  In Saudi Arabia, women can't drive, women are told how to dress, women can't leave the house without a male relative, four eyewitnesses for rape.  They're treated like garbage.  And if you look at these countries that she took money from, they treat gays, lesbians, women, Christians and Jews horribly.  You can't build a temple or a Catholic Church or a Christian Church.  Why does she get away with taking their money and then also not criticizing them?  

FATHER JONATHAN MORRIS, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR:  That second part of why is she not criticizing them, I think that is the big issue, right?  Because if you're taking money from somebody and then not criticizing them, well, you can say that is probably the reason.  

What was is that motivated this man to kill these gays at this gay bar?  What is it that motivated him?  We now know that he was going against blacks.  We know that he has spoken out against Jews.  He would have been very happy to kill anybody, anybody that doesn't fit sharia law.  That is where we have to get down and say that is against human reason.  

HANNITY:  Doctor, let me ask you this.  Sharia law persecutes women, persecutes gays, persecutes lesbians.  They're bigoted against Catholics, Christians, and Jews, and Hillary takes money from these countries and Obama kisses their you know what.  So how do they claim this mantle of being champions of women's rights, gay rights, et cetera.?  

DR. TAWFIK HAMID, AUTHOR, "INSIDE JIHAD":  This is a form of moral hypocrisy in my view because if you truly have principles of respecting women's rights and respecting the basic tenants of humanity and freedom of religion, you should refuse to accept money from those who promote the opposite.  I always remember Rudy Giuliani after September 11th when he was offered millions of dollars, $10 million, exactly, from Saudi Arabia.  And he refused to take the money because most hijackers were Saudis.  So he's a man of principle.  These are the kind of principles I believe we should see today from someone like Hillary Clinton.  But unfortunately --

HANNITY:  Father, you do good work for charity.  You have a parish where you have people in need.  If the Saudis offered you $25 million, would you take it?  

MORRIS:  Of course not.  That's very simple.  

HANNITY:  Because they're bigoted against Christians and Jews and women.  

MORRIS:  You would know that they would have another agenda, and so you would have to find out what is that agenda?  Does that agenda coincide with my charitable objectives?  If it doesn't, absolutely not.  

HANNITY:  So Hillary is a hypocrite?  

MORRIS:  In this case I think Hillary should be saying what is, what is it that motivated, in the end what is it that motivated this man?  This is the issue.  What is it that motivated --  

HANNITY:  What do you think it is?

MORRIS:  It's radical Islamic ideology.  It's very, very simple.

HANNITY:  She won't say it and he won't say it, Obama.

MORRIS:  And those who have come out and said, and that's even among religious leader, they said it's all about gun control.  What about in Boston?  They didn't use guns.  They used bombs.  

HANNITY:  Good point.  Guys, thank you.

When we come back, we need your help, an important question of the day straight ahead.  

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  Time for the "Question of the Day." Why isn't the president doing more to defeat radical Islam?  Why can't he say the words "radical Islamic terrorism"?  Why is he so weak?  Why is Hillary so weak?  We want to hear your comments.  Go to Facebook.com/SeanHannity, @SeanHannity on Twitter, let us know what you think.  

Thanks for being with us.  Unfortunately that's all the time we have left this evening.  We will see you hopefully back here tomorrow night.  Thanks for being with us.
