President Trump is being slaughtered on social media for not using the term “radical Islamic terrorism” during his speech in Saudi Arabia on Sunday. What’s worse, he went so far as to call Islam “one of the world’s great faiths.” And just like that, he was branded a “cuck” on social media. “Cuck” is a conservative slur against moderate Republicans.
“Today is the day Donald Trump became President Cuck,” wrote one disappointed Trump supporter on Twitter. “Too scared to say #RadicalIslamicTerror. Pathetic! #maga.”
Today is the day Donald Trump became President Cuck.

After repeatedly criticizing Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for not using the term, Trump’s comments were seen as hypocritical, to say the least. To make matters worse, his supporters’ negative comments are sparking liberals to break out in a chorus of “I told you so.”
