An EgyptAir flight flying from Paris to Cairo disappeared from radar early Thursday morning, creating a hysteria over whether the plane experienced a technical malfunction or was taken down by terror activities. CNN reports that “passenger belongings and aircraft parts were found 180 miles north of Alexandria” and that the “cause of the crash is more likely terrorism than technical fault, [according to] Egyptian and U.S. officials.” However, this has not, by any means, been confirmed at this point. While pundits and experts contemplate the possible scenarios that led the plane to disappear and crash suddenly, and evidence is gathered and processed, Donald Trump seems to already know the answer.
Speaking at a New Jersey campaign event yesterday evening, Trump spoke about Hillary Clinton’s inabilities to address terrorism, and in doing so, discussed the plane’s mysterious disappearance. “What just happened about 12 hours ago? A plane got blown out of the sky, and if anybody thinks it wasn’t blown out of the sky, you’re 100 percent wrong, folks.”
Trump has been criticized sharply for speaking on matters that have not yet been resolved or fully researched, and this will be no different. Liberal critics will use this as an opportunity to attack Trump as being too quick to come to conclusions and make decisions – an impetuousness that could be incredibly problematic for the next person to sit in the Oval Office.
What do you think about Trump’s claim that the plane was “blown out of the sky” by terrorists?
