Donald Trump came out as one of the first in the political spotlight to refer to the EgyptAir flight 804 that disappeared from radar as “another terrorist attack.”
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee took to Twitter to make his assessment of the 56 passengers and 10 crew members’ fate aboard the Airbus A320.
Looks like yet another terrorist attack. Airplane departed from Paris. When will we get tough, smart and vigilant? Great hate and sickness!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 19, 2016
The Associated Press reported:
Egyptian authorities said Thursday morning it was too early to call the plane’s disappearance an act of terror — but Civil Aviation Minister Sherif Fathi acknowledged that terror is a “stronger” possibility than technical failure.
Trump has vowed to get tough on Middle Eastern-based terrorists if he’s elected president in November.
Trump also vowed to “knock the hell out of” the Islamic State if he becomes our next commander-in-chief.
Fox News’ Chief Political Correspondent said it was “rare for a presidential candidate to weigh in on” such matters before an official announcement has been made.
