Donald Trump has never had an issue with calling a spade a spade, so when news of the attacks in London broke out on Saturday it was no surprise to see the president retweeting a Drudge Report headline that mentioned fears of a terror attack, fully an hour before official confirmation came from U.K. authorities.
Then, an hour later, the president called for the courts to “give us back our rights” and reinstate his travel ban from certain unstable, terrorist-hotspot Muslim-majority countries.
“We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!” Trump tweeted, reasoning that importing fewer people from countries that hate us couldn’t possibly hurt and might even save lives down the road.
It’s hard to argue with his logic unless you’re a liberal hell-bent on turning America into the Third World hellhole that Europe is becoming, all for the sake of cheap labor and Democratic votes.
Trump’s last Saturday tweet on the issue said, “whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U.K., we will be there.”
Trump’s tweets drew plenty of support from the right…

And strong, irrational reactions from the left, mostly accusing Trump of using the attacks for political purposes:
March 22 Westminster attack: Homegrown extremists
May 22 Manchester attack: Homegrown extremists
Travel bans don't stop domestic terrorists https://t.co/16YbydwWRP

This argument is particularly rich… So, Muslims come to the West, breed, and suddenly the terrorism is “homegrown.” So the liberal answer, of course, is to allow in more, as many as possible. Then, the terror their descendants create can be “homegrown” too!
This horrific attack is in another country. Just imagine all the ways Trump would exploit an attack was on U.S. soil. https://t.co/p7O6bMneSv

Stay classy, Holly.
HOLY F*CK! ARE YOU SERIOUSLY USING A FRESH TERROR ATTACK TO PUSH YOUR DISGUSTING XENOPHOBIC AGENDA?

Tin foil hats, anyone?
Don’t use an incident in my country as an excuse to push your travel ban, have some sensitivity for crying out loud
