Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is not backing down from his comments that President Obama doesn’t “love America." Now, Giuliani is adding to his comments by saying that Obama was raised by and has been influenced by communists.
During an interview with the New York Post on Friday, Giuliani noted that President Obama’s grandfather introduced him to Frank Marshall Davis, a communist, writer and labor activist.
“From the time he was 9 years old, he was influenced by Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist.
“He spent 17 years in the church of Jeremiah Wright, and this is the guy who said ‘God damn America, not God bless America.’
“Obama never left that church.
“He doesn’t talk about America the way John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan did, about America’s greatness and exceptionalism.
“He was educated by people who were critics of the US. And he has not been able to overcome those influences.
“Somebody has to raise these issues with the president. Somebody has to have the courage to stand up.”
“How could you hold a press conference about Ferguson and not hold a press conference when Christians and Jews were slaughtered?” Giuliani told the Post.
