"There's something going on. It's inconceivable.”

Those were Donald Trump's words Monday when asked about President Barack Obama's response to the massacre in Orlando. 

The statement had many wondering if the presumptive Republican nominee was implying on national television that there is a link between the president and the shooting deaths of 49 people in Orlando.  

In an interview with Fox News, Trump first criticized Obama for not protecting the country.

"He doesn't get it or he gets it better than anybody understands. It's one or the other,” Trump said on “Fox and Friends” Monday morning. "And either one is unacceptable, number one. And number two, calling on another gun ban; I mean, this man has no clue.”

Asked what he meant during a later appearance on NBC, Trump said, "Well, there's a lot of people that think maybe he doesn't want to get it. A lot of people think that maybe he doesn't want to know about it.”

“I happen to think he just doesn't know what he's doing. But there's many people that think he doesn't want to get it. He doesn't want to see what's really happening,” Trump said.

Back on the Fox News interview, Trump said, "Our government is led by a man who is a very -- look guys, we're led by a man that either is not tough, not smart or he's got something else in mind. And the 'something else in mind,’ people can't believe it.”

"There's something going on. It's inconceivable.”

What do you think? Was he implying something sinister?
