CNN host Jake Tapper responded to the New York City terrorist attack Monday with a reference to the term “Allahu Akbar.”
At least six people are dead after an apparent terrorist ran down people in Manhattan with a motor vehicle. Here’s what Tapper said in his segment with guest James Clapper, former director of national intelligence under President Obama.
TAPPER: Allahu Akbar, God is great, sometimes said under the most beautiful of circumstances. And too often we hear it being said at moments like this.

President Trump Defends American Heritage in Mount Rushmore Celebration
The President defended American heritage, images, and traditions against the cultural Left.
President Donald Trump delivered a full-throated defense of American heritage, traditions, and history during his Independence Day celebration event at Mount Rushmore on Friday, pledging to defend icons of American civilization from the onslaught of a fanatical cultural Left intent on destroying and pillaging them.
The President pledged that the American monument at which he spoke would “never be destroyed” by the cultural fanatics determined to destroy images of other American Presidents, such as Andrew Jackson and Ulysses Grant.
“I am here as your President to proclaim before the country, and before the world,” pledged the President, “this monument will never be desecrated. These heroes will never be defaced. Their legacies will never ever be destroyed. Their achievements will never be forgotten, and Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our forefathers and to our freedom.”
An attempt to prevent the event by left-wing rioters by barricading off the public access road to Mount Rushmore failed, with law enforcement towing away sabotaged vehicles they planted on the road to prevent Americans from participating in political expression.
The President spoke against the insidious agenda of the cultural left, calling out the major corporations and societal institutions that have cheered on the recent attack throughout American society against patriotic traditions.

“And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled and bled, to secure. Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children.”
MAGA conservatives and America First Nationalists largely saluted the speech as one of the greatest of Trump’s presidency, speaking with clarity in defense of American identity in an era where liberal fanaticism threatens the fabric of the American way of life.
