Donald Trump’s response to Saturday’s London terror attack was wholly inappropriate
After the recent attack on Manchester, we saluted Donald Trump for having “spoken for the majority” in referring to the evil suicide bomber as a “loser”. Last night, however, after a similarly evil assault on London, the 45th POTUS got it completely wrong when he took to Twitter to share his thoughts as to what had happened.
At 12:17am, Trump tweeted:
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!
After immediate criticism about his immediate politicisation of a developing incident involving death and injury, Trump tempered his message a few minutes later at 12:24am. He added:
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!
His response was deemed less than adequate and political commentator Iain Dale spoke for the majority when he responded:
Nice of our closet ally to express his sympathy and support at a time like this. Instead he uses this to make a political point. Wanker.
If Trump had reacted similarly to how he had over Manchester, he would have been lauded. Instead, he reverted to type and once again illustrated himself to be nothing but a buffoon. Shame on him and shame on the disgusting losers that attacked London.
I think Trump speaks it types before the brain is engaged. I would just like to congratulate the authorities on their quick response. As soon as they got the call it only took 8 minutes to send these three losing scumbags to the hell where they belong. Well done.
Well done Teresa May – – – – – – Great immediate response!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You making GREAT BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN will win you the election and deservedly so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then you must NUKE THE F**KS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!! BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mrs May’s response has been misguided and pathetic, to say nothing about being wrong.
“Prime Minister Theresa May has been warned that her promise to tighten regulation on tech firms after the London attacks will not work.
Mra May said areas of the internet must be closed because tech giants provided a “safe space” for terrorist ideology.
But the Open Rights Group said social media firms were not the problem, while an expert in radicalisation branded her criticism “intellectually lazy”.
Twitter and Facebook said they were working hard to fight extremism.
Tech companies such as Google (which owns Youtube) Facebook (which owns WhatsApp) and Twitter, were already facing pressure to tackle extremist content – pressure that intensified on Sunday.
Mrs May said: “We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed.
“Yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies… provide.””
“But the Open Rights Group, which campaigns for privacy and free speech online, warned that politicians risked pushing terrorists’ “vile networks” into the “darker corners of the web” by more regulation.
“The internet and companies like Facebook are not the cause of hate and violence, but tools that can be abused.
“While governments and companies should take sensible measures to stop abuse, attempts to control the internet is not the simple solution that Theresa May is claiming,” Open Rights said.”
You can not stop madmen reading the news and misguidedly copycatting what appeals to them. It’s DAESH who jump on the band wagon and claim every mishap as theirs, and we should not believe them. In any case it’s about time we reduced that bunch to the level of degraded beaten failures.
May will not make Britain great again and I believe she will become a great failure.
