Trump: “A bomb went off in New York… It’s a terrible thing that’s going on in our world and in our country and we are going to get tough and smart and we are going to end it. We’ll see what it is.”

Hillary: “I’ve been briefed about bombings in New York… obviously we have to do everything we can to support our first responders, also to pray for the victims. We have to let the investigation unfold. We’ve been in touch with various officials including the mayor’s office… I’ll have more to say about it when we actually know the facts.”

Contrast in leadership, Hillary describing what was clearly a terrorist attack.

The news media is very upset with Trump for saying bomb, taking another leadership role.

CBS: “Trump said, “I must tell you that just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what’s going on.”
Some in the crowd audibly gasped. Trump gave no further information. In large part, Trump was right. Nobody knew exactly what was going on. But it didn’t stop Trump from telling a crowded airport hangar that a bomb had gone off – though at the time he had no confirmation. At that time, the only reports that were circulating were filled with speculation. Neither the NYPD or the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) had confirmed that there was a bomb, only that they were responding to reports of an explosion in the Chelsea area of Manhattan
.”

AP: “Donald Trump appeared to pre-empt New York City officials when he declared Saturday evening that a “bomb went off” in New York City before officials had released details.”
