Trump Calls for Wall, Muslim Travel Ban in Response to Egyptian Mosque Attack

Donald Trump

Egypt has suffered one of its deadliest terror attacks in its modern history.

At least 235 people have died and 109 were wounded after a bomb was detonated by Islamic State militants, who also opened fire in a mosque in Bir al-Abed, a town in northern Sinai, reports the New York Times.

In a strange response to this ruthless attack on Muslims, President Donald Trump advocated for his ban on U.S. travel from several majority Muslim nations, which has stalled in the courts, as well as his proposed wall on the American-Mexican border.

"We have to get TOUGHER AND SMARTER than ever before, and we will. Need the WALL, need the BAN!" he wrote Friday on Twitter.

Trump's response was illogical, nonsensical, and ill-timed, as pointed out by many on social media.

This is not the first time Trump has used terror attacks to advance his own political agenda. In September, Trump promoted the travel ban as well as his own accomplishments in response to the deadly terror attack in London.
