President Trump’s supporters blasted him on social media after not mentioning “radical Islamic terrorism” during his speech in Saudi ArabiaSunday.
The commander-in-chief stepped away from his anti-Muslim rhetoric by calling Islam “one of the world’s great faiths.”
Trump supporters — who had been drawn to his rhetoric during his campaign — were quick to slam the President’s softer stance on the religion.
“Today is the day Donald Trump became President Cuck,” one user wrote. “Too scared to say #RadicalIslamicTerror. Pathetic! #maga.”
“Cuck” is a conservative slur against moderate Republicans.
“Trump sounds just like a typical Washington cuck,” another user wrote. “The problem isn’t terrorism in general, the problem is Islam in particular.”
“Why didn’t he say Radical Islamic Terrorism? Not once. Says Islam is a great faith — he has been neutered,” wrote another.
The President would often criticize his predecessor, Barack Obama, and his political opponent, Hillary Clinton, for not using the term.
Even former adviser, Roger Stone, expressed disdain. He tweeted a photo of the President receiving a gold medal from King Salman bin Abdulaziz on Saturday with the caption: “Candidly this makes me want to puke #JaredsIdea.”
Trump embarked on a nine-day tour on Friday to the Middle East and Europe where he’ll meet with Pope Francis and NATO leaders.
