Donald Trump blamed terrorism for a vanished EgyptAir flight before authorities were even sure the plane had crashed with 66 people on board.


French President Francois Hollande confirmed Thursday that the plane had “crashed” and an accident investigation had been opened after the plane fell 22,000 feet and swerved sharply in Egyptian airspace before disappearing from radar.

Investigators aren't sure whether the crash was accidental or intentional, but many Twitter users -- including likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump -- speculated that terrorists brought down the passenger jet.

Trump's fans picked up his message and stated explicitly what the real estate tycoon and reality TV star implied.

Other Twitter users simply belched anti-Muslim statements onto their social media pages.
