Trump is prepositioning himself to politically benefit from any future terrorist incidents

He might just as well be constantly repeating that Democrats and the media have been soft on Hurricanes, and therefor the next one to strike America can be blamed on liberals and the Weather Chanel. Alternate reality, no fact checking need apply. And America will be struck by another Hurricane, and America will again be struck by terrorists. Trump is counting on it. Authoritarians consolidate power when fear proliferates.

1. Not very smart since it's highly likely the next attack might be from a far right male

with a closet full of guns. If there's something like a Dylann Roof or a Sandy Hook he might have to talk gun control. The Muslims will have nothing to do with it.

4. After 911, the original Patriot Act. After Sandy Hook, nothing

We have had right wing terror and gun nuts before. Trump barely makes note of it even in real time. I think Trump and his ilk think they can weather the political backlash against right wing terror, and still capitalize on fear of Islamic extremism when it rears its head again, even if the right wing strike first. Unless neo nazis do something on the scale of the Oklahoma City bombing that is.

6. Great point

Dems should stop talking about the ban, and everything else Trump does. Just exist and let the chips fall where they may. Maybe we'll get lucky.
