President Trump said he planned to call Egypt's president following Friday's bombing and shooting attack in the country's volatile Sinai Peninsula, a horrific assault that claimed the lives of at least 235 people and wounded 109 others.
Trump tweeted Friday he would discuss the "tragic terrorist attack" with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi. Trump continued his tweet by reiterating the United States' need for a border wall and travel ban.
"Will be calling the President of Egypt in a short while to discuss the tragic terrorist attack, with so much loss of life. We have to get TOUGHER AND SMARTER than ever before, and we will. Need the WALL, need the BAN! God bless the people of Egypt," Trump tweeted.
Death toll now over 300 including 24 children. I just can't imagine the heartbreak these families are feeling.
