President Donald Trump is asserting that the world must crush terrorists by military means - and insisting that the U.S. needs a southern border wall and his travel ban.

Trump's views via Twitter came Friday as he denounced the deadly mosque attack in Egypt and offered its president his condolences.

Trump's original travel ban sought to temporarily suspend the U.S. refugee program and block the entry of nationals from seven majority-Muslim counties into the U.S. The order sparked chaos at airports and a flurry of lawsuits, which led to the order's suspension. The administration has since made several attempts to revise the order to try to better hold up to legal scrutiny.

The president is spending the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend at his golf club, Mar-a-Lago, in south Florida.
