Donald Trump blamed terrorism for the EgyptAir Flight 804 crash in a tweet posted early Thursday morning, even though authorities are still investigating the cause of the crash.
“Looks like yet another terrorist attack. Airplane departed from Paris. When will we get tough, smart and vigilant? Great hate and sickness!” the presumptive GOP nominee tweeted at about 6:30 a.m. ET.
It was approximately two hours after Trump’s tweet was posted that the Egyptian Civil Aviation Minister Sherif Fathy said they were not ruling out any possibilities yet.
“We do not deny there is a possibility of terrorism or deny the possibility of technical fault,” Fathy said. “I will continue to use the term ‘missing plane’ until we find any debris.”
