MSNBC Contributor Deletes Tweet Calling for ISIS Bombing of Trump Property

BY:

An MSNBC contributor wrote Tuesday on Twitter that he hoped the Islamic State would bomb President Donald Trump's property in Turkey.

Counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance was responding to a tweet of an image of Trump Tower Istanbul that was alleging the property was the reason Trump called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to congratulate him on his controversial referendum win over the weekend.

"This is my nominee for the first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property," Nance tweeted, and then later deleted.

During the presidential election, Nance accused Trump of propping up ISIS through his actions and words.

"I will go so far as to say Donald Trump is the ISIS candidate," Nance said. "He inflames the passions of people in the West to perform Islamophobia, to draw recruits to them, to make them say, ‘This is what America is.'"

Nance also nodded along when MSNBC host Thomas Roberts speculated in 2016 that the ISIS-affiliated Nice truck killer was just a mentally ill person who "took a moment to challenge society in a horrific way."

"We've seen that," he agreed. "We call them EDPs. Extremely disturbed persons, or emotionally disturbed persons."
