Donald Trump Blames Obama for EgyptAir Crash
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has once again blamed the outgoing president of the United States, Barrack Obama, for a tragic event that happened outside of the United States.
Last week, Trump assumed in his tweet that the sudden disappearance of EgyptAir is another act of terrorism. And surely enough, just a few hours after his tweet, Egyptian and US officials reported that the cause of crash is more likely a result of terrorism than a technical fault.
Looks like yet another terrorist attack. Airplane departed from Paris. When will we get tough, smart and vigilant? Great hate and sickness!

According to the news update of CNN, Greek officials said the plane swerved sharply then plunged from 37,000 feet to 10,000 feet after entering Cairo airspace. In a report, PoliticusUSA criticized Trump's move of blaming the Obama administration for the alleged terrorist attack. According to the report, it is odd that Trump is blaming the outgoing president for the crash that has no connection to U.S. because it contradicts part of his campaign, saying U.S. should not serve as the policemen of the world unless they are paid to do so.

Trump also uses the tragic event to mock his greatest enemy in the presidential race, Hillary Clinton.
"She and our totally ignorant President won't even use the term Radical Islamic Terrorism. And by the way, ask Hillary who blew up the plane last night - another terrible, but preventable tragedy," a press release read. "She has bad judgement and is unfit to serve as President at this delicate and difficult time in our country's history."
He also criticized Clinton in his series of tweets saying, "Look where the world is today, a total mess, and ISIS is still running around wild. I can fix it fast, Hillary has no chance!"
"Crooked Hillary Clinton looks presidential? I don't think so! Four more years of Obama and our country will never come back. ISIS LAUGHS!" further wrote Trump in his social media account.
Debris from EgyptAir Flight 804 was found by Egyptian military force. It has crashed in the Mediterranean with 66 souls onboard. Officials said they have found passenger belongings and parts of the aircraft 180 miles north of Alexandria. Before taking off Paris, the plane made a stop in Eritrea and Tunisia.
