In a very clear display of just where President Trump’s priorities lie, he posted a series of tweets following the late Saturday terror attack in London that left 7 dead and saved actual condolences for last.
When he finally did post a message of respect to the victims of the attack and attempted to make a show of reaching out to Great Britain, it was an almost ridiculously alarmist, all caps message.
Trump’s first tweet following the London incident (besides a retweet of the Drudge Report) was a plug for his Muslim targeting travel ban. (Yes, really.)
In a remarkable feat of co-opting an incident of tragedy for his own political purposes, Trump wrote, “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!”
The most recent update to the travel ban saga is that the Trump Administration has filed an appeal with the Supreme Court of a lower court’s decision to stop the ban from going into effect.
It’s only after the plug for his travel ban that an attempt at condolences came.
Trump wrote, “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!”
Unsurprisingly, Twitter said what we would all like to say to Trump and dragged him for his phony, shallow attempt at being a legitimate world leader.
