Donald Trump said former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani could head a commission to examine radical Islamic terrorism if he emerges as president.
The presumptive GOP nominee said during a phone-in interview on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning that he’s thinking about setting up a commission to take a “very serious look at this problem.”
“We have a problem. Now, if you don’t want to discuss the problem, then we’re never going to solve the problem,” Trump said. “We have a president that won’t even use the term ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ He won’t use the term. He refuses to say the term, even after Paris where 130 people were killed or San Bernardino or any other place…. It’s a real problem.”
Trump, who recently said he has narrowed his running mate down to five or six experienced politicians, mentioned Giuliani as someone who can help solve the problem.
“In fact, I’m thinking about setting up a commission perhaps headed by Rudy Giuliani to take a very serious look at this problem. But this is a worldwide problem, and we have to be smart,” Trump said.
Just last week the New York Daily News mentioned the former NYC mayor as a potential Secretary of Homeland Security in a Trump administration.
Giuliani recently told CNN’s “New Day” that he will endorse Trump but will not be part of his campaign.
“I’m Rudy Giuliani, I mean a lot in New York politics, I endorse Donald Trump, but I’m not a part of the campaign,” the he said. “I’m not a part of the campaign apparatus and I don’t want people to think I am.”
