Right-wing conspiracy theorist and vocal Donald Trump-supporter Alex Jones on his online news show Tuesday called the ISIS attacks on an airport and metro station in Brussels, Belgium, "the ultimate false flag."

"It's a real Islamic attack," Jones clarified. "But when you bring [Muslim immigrants] in, and you know they're gonna attack, and you know a bunch of 'em are terror cells, then you are aiding and abetting."

Jones then lauded Trump's proposed ban on Muslim immigrants, calling it "default common sense."

"Donald Trump has shown his geopolitical foxiness," Jones added, "in that he told AIPAC yesterday, just hours before this happened, that NATO has been basically backing ISIS, and is no friend of Israel."
