On her second episode of The Ingraham Angle, Laura Ingraham gave her take on the NYC terrorist attack that took place Tuesday afternoon.

“Let me tell you what we’re not going to get used to in the United States as ‘the new normal’ or dismiss this as a one-off or ‘just another senseless act of violence,'” Ingraham began. “When a jihaddists games our immigration system, gets a green card, rents a truck. and in the name of Allah mows down innocents in a major American city. That is not nor will it ever be acceptable in the U.S., particularly when it’s preventable as this act of terror may have been.”

The Fox News host mocked the “platitudes” that came from Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) when he said that NYC was a “symbol of freedom and democracy,” which also makes it a target from those who “oppose those concepts.”

“Of course New York is susceptible to attack, duh!” Ingraham reacted. “Every city is susceptible to attack. Those words mean nothing! We want action from elected officials to keep this country and cities like New York safe. And listening to this makes me think of the mass Islamic resettlement in Europe. We saw terror attacks in Barcelona, Paris, London, Manchester, on and on.”

She then noted that President Trump was branded as “cruel and heartless” for his travel ban he attempted to enact.

“You know what’s ‘cruel and heartless?'” Ingraham asked. “Bikers and pedestrians run over in broad daylight in a major American city. That’s cruel and heartless.”

Ingraham praised Trump’s instincts on homeland security, calling protecting the borders, deporting lawbreakers, building the wall, and pausing refugee programs “common sense solutions.”

“President Trump was elected in part, in large part, because voters appreciated his no nonsense pragmatism on issues like homeland security and immigration,” she continued. “Although we can’t stop all terror attacks in the United States, the safety of the American people demand that we do what we can to stop those attacks that are preventable. 9/11 should have made it obvious to everyone that Islam has a hideous radicalization problem. Donald Trump put the onus on Muslim leaders on his first foreign trip to get their houses in oder and reform from within. Here at home we should not lose one more American life because politicians don’t have the nerve or the will to do what’s necessary to secure the homeland. Our safety is their primary responsibility.”
