ROUGH CUT (no reporter narration) Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani told delegates at the Republican National Convention (RNC) Monday night (July 18) that the U.S. is "coming to get" what he called "Islamic extremist terrorists" when Donald Trump becomes president. In a fiery speech in which he often shouted and gestured energetically with his hands, Giuliani also gave an impassioned defense of police officers, criticizing what he suggested was the divisive rhetoric of the Obama administration. "When they come to save your life, they don't ask if you're black or white they just come to save you," said Giuliani. Giuliani, who won popularity for his response to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, appeared at the nominating convention in Cleveland to urge the delegates to support fellow New Yorker, Trump. Giuliani is a former federal prosecutor who was built a reputation for being tough on criminals. He was one of a lineup of speakers on the convention's first day designed to support the theme of "Make America Safe Again." Giuliani said that Trump, unlike President Barack Obama, would call America's enemies by what he said was their true name - "Islamic extremist terrorism." "You know who you are," Giuliani said, "and we're coming to get you."
