Michael Reagan: 'America Is Not Leading at All'

The deadly Brussels attacks demonstrate that "America is not leading at all," especially President Barack Obama, political commentator Michael Reagan told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"The president of the United States showed that today," Reagan told host J.D. Hayworth on "America Votes: 2016" in an interview. "He's still not leading there in Cuba.

"You almost get the idea that there's some part of him that blames others, not the terrorists, for what is going on," he said.

Reagan, the eldest son of former President Ronald Reagan, recalled a meeting his father held with the nation's intelligence agencies after he took office in 1981.

"His first meeting was with the FBI, CIA, National Security Agency to talk about terrorism and what can be done in that administration to thwart terrorism and make it safer for Americans not only in the United States but all over the world," he told Hayworth.

Reagan also likened President Barack Obama's plan to admit Syrian refugees to the Mariel boatlift in 1980 during the Carter administration.

As many as 125,000 Cubans reached Florida before the effort ended after seven months.

"This was when you had Fidel Castro empty out every criminal on the planet in his jail system and send them to the United States of America," he told Hayworth.

"Why do we think things are going to be different by bringing in these refugees into the United States — that you don’t think there's going to be criminals and jihadists and others that are going to be in that group of people as there were criminals in the Mariel boatlift that took place under the Carter administration?"
