Washington: In remarks aimed at presidential candidate Donald Trump, US President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have cautioned against those “formenting division” by exploiting fear among people in the wake of the recent terror attacks around the world. Obama said the intent of the terrorists was to “weaken our faith” and lead people to turn their backs on those who are most in need of help and refuge.
“These attacks can foment fear and division. They can tempt us to cast out the stranger, strike out against those who don’t look like us, or pray exactly as we do. And they can lead us to turn our backs on those who are most in need of help and refuge.
