After Tuesday’s terror attacks in Brussels, Donald Trump, who is also the Republican party’s front runner issued a few statement in a series of TV interviews. His talking points have evolved and progressed in what seems to be his custom foreign-policy platform of being afraid of Muslims.Donald Trump’s reaction to the Brussels terrorist attacks have been to name the Belgian capital as a ”horrible city” that is deteriorating because of the Muslim immigration.
He also went as far as to endorse the use of torture ( waterboarding anyone?), and flip-flopped on whether or not he would be shutting down the boarder if he was president. Trump has also issued a warning of similar acts of terror coming to the United States. He kept returning back to his statement again and again that Brussels was a “horrible city” .
The Republic front-runner caused anger across the UK when he told ITV’s Good Morning that British Muslims were ignorant and apathetic when it came to stopping attacks such as Tuesday’s brutal bombings from taking place. Trump also made an appearance on the Today Show with Matt Lauer where he spoke further about the attack and what steps he would take if he was the president during this time.
Matt Lauer asked Trump what actions he would take had the attack happened if he was the president of the United States.
Trump said the following:
‘Well first of all this is a subject that is very dear and near to my heart because I have certainly been talking about it much more than anybody else, it’s why I’m probably number one in the polls because I say we have to have strong borders.’
‘We have to be very vigilant and careful who we let into our country. I know Brussels well and Brussels is a total mess, and I’m not talking about the attack today.
‘I’m talking about, generally speaking, it is a city that used to be one of the finest, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and now its a catastrophic and very dangerous city where the police have very little control.’
