Donald Trump Blames Terrorism For EgyptAir Tragedy

The presumptive GOP nominee is never wrong in his own mind, so he doesn't miss a chance to show that even in the wake of tragedy.

Donald Trump's entire campaign is built on making a mockery of common decency.

His attacks on women, Muslims, Mexicans and many other minority groups are nonstop. His entire election campaign stands on controversial statements and immoral actions that have led people to question his capability of becoming the next president of the United States.

However, none of his past antics come close to what the self-obsessed business mogul has just done. Talking about the EgyptAir tragedy at a fundraiser in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, Trump not only called out Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton for saying he is not qualified to be president, but also blamed the incident on radical Islamic terrorism.

"Looks like yet another terrorist attack. Airplane departed from Paris. When will we get tough, smart and vigilant? Great hate and sickness!” he tweeted.

The presumptive GOP nominee also went on to tell people they are absolutely wrong if they do not believe the plane’s disappearance was a result of terrorism.

“A plane got blown out of the sky,” he said.

Trump might not be wrong, and surely terrorism could be a possible cause for the missing plane, but even Egyptian aviation minister Sherif Fathy has not been able to say the same with such certainty as Trump did.

“I don’t want to go to assumptions like others, but if you analyze the situation properly, the possibility...of having a terror attack is higher than having a technical,” Fathy said.

It seems like the former reality TV star doesn’t pause to think about what he is saying before he actually spills out the words. Politicizing a tragic incident like this one is simply immoral, and cashing in on the opportunity to praise himself in the process is even worse.
