Donald Trump wants us to believe President Obama put New York at risk as a terrorist target for daring to talk about New York being a terrorist target.
March 27, 2014

The Donald and his hairpiece took to Twitter to attack President Obama for his statement that he was much more concerned "with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan" than he was with Russia -- so naturally, Fox's Greta Van Susteren invited him on her show to fling a bit more mud at the president.

Trump: Obama 'put a big target' on New York City with 'dumb' nuke comments:

VAN SUSTEREN: Donald, you practically barbecued the president. I didn't he even read the full tweet. This one got you going.

TRUMP: It's one of the dumbest statements I have ever heard by a president. I don't mean just the president of this country. I have never heard a statement like that. I was watching and I heard it, and it was like I can't believe you said it. He just put a big target on Manhattan. I think it's one of the dumbest statements I have ever heard a president make. I don't know if this man knows what he is doing at all anymore. He was exhausted. He was tired. Looked like he was just exhausted. It was absolutely the dumbest -- I guess I have to say one but maybe I can say the single dumbest statement I have ever heard a president make.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right. You talked about being exhausted and tweeted about him being exhausted saying President Obama looks absolutely exhausted in Netherlands. He is not a natural leader. He was never meant to lead. It is tough work for him. You go deeper with him.

TRUMP: He is not a natural leader. It is very hard for him to lead. He never did it before in his life, and it is very hard for him to lead. But when he talks about nuclear weapons going off in Manhattan where you have millions and millions of people -- I mean, what you are doing is saying this is a target, do it here. It's so incredible that a president would make a statement like that. I'm not the only one that feels that way, by the way. There are many people. They couldn't believe he said it.

VAN SUSTEREN: You know what I thought when I heard it? I took it a little differently. I thought OK, New York is safe because now all the terrorists are going to know that New York has got like triple, quadruple security. They are going to pick another big estimate in the country. They're gonna pick another big city. I actually saw this the other way around.

TRUMP: I felt just the opposite. I think most people agree with me. I mean, I don't disagree with you much, but I certainly disagree with you. It shouldn't have been mentioned. It's called out of sight, out of mind. It shouldn't have been mentioned. What does he have to bring that up for?
