Donald Trump is criticized for commenting on the London terrorist attack like he’s angry about what happened.
A London terrorist attack occurred this morning that left people severely burned and hospitalized. Donald Trump commented and the mainstream media is more upset at him for doing so than they appear to be about the terrorists.
Thus, CNN opines, “Trump’s latest post-London tweet storm didn’t wait for the facts.” But they have no idea what facts the President has already been given. Their alleged “report” does exactly what it accuses Trump of doing.
Even as British police were still sorting out exactly what had happened in the London Underground on Friday morning, President Donald Trump was using the incident to prove a point.
“Another attack in London by a loser terrorist.” he tweeted. “These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!” Added Trump: “The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!”
The travel ban, of course, is Trump’s executive order aimed at blocking people from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States, a necessary step in combating terrorism, according to the President. But, at least in the early stages of this London investigation, there is no evidence to suggest where the attackers hailed from or what their motives were. All we know, according to British police, is that it is being investigated as a terrorist incident.
Asked about Trump’s tweet that the London tube attack was perpetrated by people known to the security services, British Prime Minister Theresa May said it is “never helpful for anyone to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation.”
