Over 30 people were killed and more than 100 injured after multiple terrorists attacks took place in Brussels on Tuesday. The Islamic State (ISIS) took credit for the attack, with many celebrating across various social media platforms

ISIS in Brussels

At least two explosions went off at the Zaventem airport, as hundreds of people scattered in fear. Brussels' threat level has been raised to "maximum" as the country has now been put on lockdown. According to New York Times' correspondent Rukmini Callimachi on March 22, ISIS has accepted responsibility through their news-wire Amaq News Agency, stating, "Islamic State fighters carried out a series of bombings with explosive belts and devices." Callimachi also notes that with each new attack, ISIS has been quick to claim responsibility.

Earlier in the week, 26-year-old Salah Abdeslam was captured by authorities in a massive raid and was determined to be the mastermind behind the Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris last November. Abdeslam was the final suspect being sought for the previous attacks, who was shot in the leg during the raid and taken into custody. The Brussels attacks have been reported as a possible retaliation from ISIS for Abdeslam's capture.

Trump's response

Following the attacks, GOP front runner Donald Trump took to Twitter to take shots at President Obama, who is currently on an historic trip to Cuba.

Trump called Obama "ridiculous," accusing the president of being "treated badly" for not responding to the the ISIS attacks in a more timely manner.

Trump continued, calling Brussels a "disaster city" while calling for the suspects to be waterboarded once they are captured.

Trump has been accused of being an "Islamaphobe" for his alleged anti-Muslim comments, but continues to remain consistent in his criticism.

During an interview on Tuesday morning with Fox Business, the billionaire real estate mogul continued his controversial campaign theme of attacking Muslims.

"We're having problems with the Muslims," Trump said. He was asked about the Muslim ban he called for after the attacks in Paris, to which he said got "tremendous support."

Continuing, the former host of "The Apprentice" pushed for increased security in heavy Muslim areas. "You need surveillance," Trump said, explaining, "You have to deal with the mosques whether you like it or not."
