The gunman who slaughtered 49 people in June 2016, after taking party-goers hostage inside a gay club in Orlando, pledged allegiance to Islamic State before his heinous act of violence.
Law enforcement sources identified the shooter, who was wielding an AR-15 assault rifle and a handgun, as US citizen Omar Mateen, 29, a Muslim man from Port St. Lucie, Florida.
The gunman, who was born to Afghan parents, opened fire on the dance floor inside Pulse night club in the early hours of this morning.
But that’s not what Democrat presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Cory Booker (NJ) had to say about the Islamic terrorist, Omar Mateen who massacred 49 innocent people in the Orlando nightclub. When speaking to a survivor of the Pulse Nightclub attack during a CNN townhall, Senator Booker attempted to paint the Islamic terrorist as a “White, right-wing terrorist.”
The Daily Caller tweeted:
While taking a question from a survivor of the 2016 Pulse Nightclub terrorist attack, presidential candidate @CoryBooker implies that it was committed by a “right-wing extremist.” It was committed by a Muslim man who pledged himself to ISIS.
