Terrorists couldn't have scripted better reactions for themselves from Trump

Trump's reactions to the terrorist attack on the bike path is just what the radical Muslims ordered. First, he blew the xenophobic anti-immigration dog whistle. Second, he used the incident to blame political opponents, not the radicals, for the incident, contributing to domestic divisiveness. Third, he incited fear and nativist reactions ("not in America!" ) designed to loosen people's grip on personal liberties. Finally, he undermined an American governmental institution (the courts) by declaring them impotent.

Isis must be thrilled.
