Presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told Fox News host Sean Hannity Thursday night that President Barack Obama is willing to endanger the lives of Americans by moving forward with his plan to relocate 10,000 Syrian refugees to the United States.
"This president is so driven by radical ideology, by political correctness," Cruz told Hannity. "The president insists we have to endanger the safety and security of our nation."
"Remember, this is a president who refuses to say the words, 'radical Islamic terrorism,' just like Hillary Clinton in the Democratic debate," he continued. "If they can't define the enemy then they don't acknowledge the simple reality that they can't vet whether the people they are bringing in are terrorists."
"It is profoundly dangerous," the Republican presidential candidate added.
Cruz also touched on the attacks President Obama launched his way earlier in the week when Obama labeled GOP rhetoric a "potent recruitment tool for ISIL," referring to comments Cruz and other Republicans made.
"Obama, instead of defending this nation, just attacks you and me and every American who wants to keep this nation safe," Cruz said.
