    President-elect Donald Trump plans to meet with his incoming national security adviser in the aftermath of a rattling day of violence around the world. 

    Trump appeared to jump ahead of investigators in blaming Islamic terrorists for deadly incidents Monday in Turkey and Germany and vowing anew to eradicate their networks. 

    He called the gunman who shot Russia's ambassador to Turkey a "radical Islamic terrorist." 

    And Trump released a statement about the Berlin truck crash in which at least 12 people were killed, saying that "Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities."
