And if anybody thinks it wasn't blown out of the sky, you're 100 percent wrong," Trump told Republicans at a fundraiser in New Jersey for Governor Chris Christie. Authorities in Egypt and France said it was too soon to say what caused the Airbus A320 carrying 66 people to come down on its way from Paris to Cairo.
