Once again Americans woke up this morning to another terrorist attack, this time … in Brussels, which is a region of Belgium.
As of the time of this blog, it has been reported that 31 people have been killed and 187 people have been injured in two explosions at the Brussels’ airport and, one explosion at the Metro Station. As time goes on, sadly, the death toll may increase.
ISIS has apparently taken claim for these attacks. There are reports from various news agencies indicating that this attack may have been planned far in advance, but, was carried out ahead of plan, in retaliation for the capture of terrorist Salah Abdeslam. (Wanted in the Paris attacks on 13 November 2015.)
And, then, here in America … is the explosive remark detonated by Ted Cruz against Donald Trump.
While Cruz did not directly blame Trump for the terrorist attack in Brussels (He would have if he could have had more notice, I’m sure.), Cruz did say the following. “It is striking the day after Donald Trump called for America … weakening from NATO … we see Brussels … where Nato is headquartered, the subject of an Islam terrorist attack.”
He went further and said that “Donald Trump is wrong that America should withdraw from the world and abandon our allies. Donald Trump is wrong that American should retreat from Europe, retreat from NATO, hand Putin a major victory and while he’s at it hand ISIS a major victory,” Cruz said.”
I find it not surprising, but despicable of Ted Cruz to use this moment to talk about Trump, rather than to simply send a message of condolences and solidarity to the people of Brussels … this … without … making a political statement.
Cruz said that it was wrong of Trump to work forward to “withdraw” from NATO. And … that Trump wants to weaken NATO.
I find it typical of “Lying Ted” to make a political statement about Donald J. Trump that is absolutely false.
Now Hear This! “Lying Cruz” alert! This NOT what Trump said, or meant.
What Trump said … and meant … is that NATO is not carrying its weight. NATO depends heavily on America, financially, with America adding so much more help, financially, than any other country that is a part of NATO. Trump is calling for NATO to do its share financially. Would he use this at a “bargaining power” for America to stay in NATO? Absolutely, he should … in my humble opinion. And, we know that he is the best negotiator of all negotiators.
And, we know that Ted Cruz is the best liar … of … well. And, yes, that is my humble opinion, based on lie after lie, after lie.
Utahns are headed for the polls tonight, and I am sure that the terrorist attacks in Brussels, hours ago, will be on their minds. I’m sure that the safety of this country will be on their minds. I can only hope that when they hear Ted Cruz speak of building a wall and (as of today) there should be a halt on visas and we need to stop the influx of refugees coming into America … that Utahns will remember that it was Donald J Trump that said this first … “when it wasn’t cool.”
And, that Ted Cruz … hours after the terrorist attacks in Brussels, used this terrible tragedy to launch a political attack on Donald J. Trump, by detonating false accusations.
