Clemons’ criticism was in response to a question from Huffington Post Senior Political Editor Sam Stein about how it could of happened and why Belgium. “I guess that's a bit of a surprise to us around the table because the city was on high alert owing to the arrest [of Salah Abdeslam]  … why is Brussels and Belgium at large being the epicenter for this? What is it about that city that allows something like this to fester?”
