Trump Just Exploited The London Bridge Attack For His Own Benefit

london bridgeAmid today’s shocking news of at least three suspected terror attacks hitting London, from stabbings to vehicles moving down pedestrians, Trump took to Twitter for a decidedly selfish reason.

 

Trump’s tweet comes on the heels of his request that the Supreme Court reconsider his travel ban, which has already been struck down twice as unconstitutional. In Trump’s latest unsuccessful appeal of the ban, the 4th Circuit Appeals Court said that the executive order “speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination.”

The President’s comment also touches on international sore spot between the United States and the UK. British police were reportedly incensed after American leaks revealed the names of the suspects for the Manchester bombing before UK authorities intended to release them, potentially damaging their investigation.

Trump should be ashamed of exploiting London’s horrific tragedy to promote his own unconstitutional and staunchly un-American executive order. Now, even the international community will get a firsthand glimpse at our President’s transparent attempts to manipulate a disastrous situation for his own personal gain.
