Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Monday said terrorists failed to successfully strike the United States in the eight years before President Obama and former secretary of State Hillary Clinton took office.
“Under those eight years, before Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States,” Giuliani said Monday ahead of a speech by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on foreign policy.
“They all started when Clinton and Obama got into office.”
Giuliani was the mayor of New York City during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. In making the remarks about terrorism, he was commending Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, for his work in Congress after 9/11.
“He’s a member of the Foreign Affairs and Judiciary committees, and during the time of Sept. 11, when we went through the worst foreign attack in our history, since the War of 1812,” Giuliani said.
