MSNBC Anchor Warns U.S. Of Trump: Is He ‘Trying To Provoke A Domestic Terrorist Attack?’


MSNBC Anchor Warns U.S. Of Trump: Is He ‘Trying To Provoke A Domestic Terrorist Attack?’

Thomas Roberts, anchor on MSNBC, asked during a Sunday afternoon segment, is Donald Trump “trying to provoke a domestic terrorist attack?”

In response to the recent attack on London that killed seven civilians and injured 48, Trump tweeted:

“We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse.”

“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’ ” he added in a subsequent tweet.

“Let’s not be PC about this,” Roberts said before first asking Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed (D), “Is the president trying to provoke a domestic terrorist attack with this Twitter rant because — only to prove himself right?”

Reed responded by saying:

“Not being politically correct doesn’t mean being misinformed or leaking intelligence that harms one of our most important allies.”

He later added, “The way to handle a matter of this kind is not through the form of tweet, it’s form of leader to leader direct conversations often handled in a confidential manner.”

Roberts then asked the same question to former Vermont governor and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean, who also avoided answering directly.

“I asked this of Mayor Reed, but it seems like the president is trying to provoke something that he can politicize more for his own gain in America. Do you feel that way?” Roberts asked.

“Well, I think he’s totally incompetent,” Dean said.

He then added:

“I’m tired of this crap. Let him do what he wants. He’s not the president of what the American dream stands for. He’s not the president of the greatest nation on the face of the Earth.

“He can be his own president and get whatever he wants out of that. We’ll speak for America. He can speak for whoever he wants.”
