Donald Trump blasted Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, calling into question her qualifications to run the country.

Following the disappearance of EgyptAir Flight 804, Trump issued a statement responding to Clinton’s charge that he is unqualified to be president.

“The fact that Hillary thinks the temporary Muslim ban, which she calls the ‘Muslim ban’, promotes terrorism, proves Bernie Sanders was correct when he said she is not qualified to be President,” Trump said in the statement issued Thursday.

“Look at the carnage all over the world including the World Trade Center, San Bernardino, Paris, the USS Cole, Brussels and an unlimited number of other places. She and our totally ignorant President won’t even use the term Radical Islamic Terrorism,” the statement continued.

The presumptive Republican nominee used the news of the EgyptAir flight to attack Clinton. “And by the way, ask Hillary who blew up the plane last night – another terrible, but preventable tragedy,” he said.  “She has bad judgement and is unfit to serve as President at this delicate and difficult time in our country’s history.”

Trump followed with a series of Twitter posts on Friday.
