Trump once again shows to the World how much of a jerk he really is with his tweets on the London terror attack:
President Trump used the occasion of a terror attack in London to plug his proposed travel ban Saturday evening.
“We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!” Trump tweeted as chaos unfolded across multiple sites, with reports of fatalities on the London Bridge.
He seemed to recognize the insensitivity of the post and minutes later tweeted again.
“Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U.K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!”
It wasn’t until his third tweet that he showed sympathy for the terror victims of London yesterday:
Mr Trump’s apparent attempt to score political points relating to his controversial executive order in the wake of the attack prompted outrage from a succession of experts and human rights lawyers.
John Horgan, a terrorism and political violence expert at Georgia State University, called the President an “Opportunist-in-Chief”, while Adam Wagner, a human rights barrister, said: “Message from London: political point scoring is the absolute, LAST thing we need right now.”
Mr Trump’s third tweet on the attack was more in line with previous messages sent to the UK after the Manchester Arena explosion, which killed 22 people, and the Westminster stabbing in March.
This was the headline from the British paper, Mirror:
Donald Trump took to Twitter as the deadly London terror attack unfolded to shamelessly promote his controversial Muslim travel ban.
