On December 11th, late at evening, the news of a yet another terrorist attack in France spread rapidly. Strasbourg is a quite large city near the German-France border, being famous for having been a part of both countries during its history. The suspect is a 29-year-old man, accused of having killed two or three people, it's not confirmed yet, and injuring several others. 

The police is investigating what happened as a terrorist attack, but it's not sure what his motives were, as he is still on the run. He has had issues with the local police before and he has shown signs of radicalisation. He's actually been convicted of crimes in several European countries. 

What I'd like to point out here is, the refugees aren't the only ones in Europe committing these crimes. I'd also like to point out how ridiculously ignorant and disrespectful it is of foreign leader to do something Trump did just the following day, which is today. 

Another very bad terror attack in France. We are going to strengthen our borders even more. Chuck and Nancy must give us the votes to get additional Border Security!

This is a tweet he sent to the world just a few hours ago. What's wrong with it, then? First of all, he doesn't address the people of France at all, like is usually the case. Terrorism is a global issue, contries usually give their throughts to the people affected. Trump didn't. 

The second issue is how he manages to be so self-centered. There has been a terrorist attack in France. Not the US. Don't bring your own country's political issues in this. It's disrespectful towards the victims and all people of France.

And thirdly, which is very close to the second problem. Trump is talking about border security, which has nothing to do with this terrorist attack. It has been confirmed by almost all medias worldwide, that the suspect was funnily enough, not an illegal immigrant, but a French citizen. Sure, he may have roots somewhere else and he may be Muslim, but that doesn't make him a terrorist. Border security is not the problem here. Trump is making wrong accusations and therefore showing the world how completely unaware he is of what has actually happened. A ten-year-old can Google the information needed here. It's not rocket science, it's common sense to check your facts unless you want to look like a total idiot.

(Also, if you were affected by the attack, my condolenses. I'd say I'll pray for you but chanses are I'll never pray so. I'm sorry and keep your head up.)
