"President Trump, instead of politicizing and dividing America, which he always seems to do at times of national tragedy, should be focusing on the real solution - anti-terrorism funding - which he proposed cutting in his most recent budget," Schumer said in a statement.

New York itself would stand to lose millions in federal funds. On Tuesday, a 29-year-old Uzbek national killed eight people and injured more than a dozen more when he drove a rented truck onto a bike and pedestrian path in Manhattan, pledging his support to ISIS in a note found at the scene.

.........A program run by the Transportation Security Administration, called the Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response program, would also be drastically cut. Such teams support security efforts on all modes of transportation, and also deploy for security of major events like sports' championship games and Inauguration.

3. "Beginning on January 20th, 2017, safety will be restored."

When Trump accepted the GOP nomination:

"I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end," he said. "Beginning on January 20th, 2017, safety will be restored."

4. I just heard this on Chris Hayes

when he spoke with the Dem congressman whose district was where the attack yesterday occurred. Info like this needs to get out more! But since it isn't "fake" 33% of the country won't ever learn about it since Fux Ruse isn't an apple like CNN but is BANANAS!

9. I saw/heard it on MSNBC.

It isn't from a tweet. Perhaps if you go to MSNBC.com you will be able to see it since they have videos of all the shows on their network.

6. The 0.0001%

want their tax cuts and don't care if the peasantry gets killed by terrorists.

In fact, by exploiting the subset of terrorist attacks committed by anyone besides white males, the reich can simultaneously keep the populace living in fear and gin up hatred of the "other". Very convenient.

10. Everything that doesn't personally benefit him or russia gets cut.

everything he promotes ALWAYS has something in it for him personally, not his base. He tweets for his base, holds rallies and lies like a rug for them, but he doesn't produce any legislation that actually helps the lower middle class or poor.
