Donald Trump used the EgyptAir plane crash to criticize Hillary Clinton after she cried foul over his proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from the United States.
"The fact that Hillary thinks the temporary Muslim ban, which she calls the 'Muslim ban,' promotes terrorism, proves Bernie Sanders was correct when he said she is not qualified to be President," Trump said in a statement
"Look at the carnage all over the world including the World Trade Center, San Bernardino, Paris, the USS Cole, Brussels and an unlimited number of other places. 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. She has bad judgement and is unfit to serve as President at this delicate and difficult time in our country's history."
Trump was responding to comments Clinton made during a CNN interview
"When you say you're going to bar all Muslims, you're sending evidence to the Muslim world, and you're also sending a message to terrorists," Clinton said.
"Donald Trump is essentially being used as a recruiter for more people to join the cause of terrorism."
Trump posted a tweet early Thursday morning about EgyptAir Flight 804
, which departed Paris and was heading for Cairo before it dropped off radar over the Mediterranean Sea.
Clinton also said Thursday it seems that terrorism is the likely cause
of the missing jetliner.
