Even thousands of miles away, and allegedly “exhausted,” President Trump does not fail to offer support nor will he overlook any despicable and cowardly terror attack, like the recent one in Manchester.
Recently, President Donald Trump condemned the barbaric act of violence in Manchester, calling the perpetrators “evil losers” whopreyed on “innocent children” and “must be driven out of our society forever.”
So far, 22 people have been reported to have died and more than 50 were wounded after a lone wolf suicide bomber detonated a homemade explosion at an Ariana Grande concert late on Monday, say Manchester law enforcement authorities.
During a meeting in West Ban with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday, President Trump started off the speech by denouncing this reprehensible act of terror.
“As President of the United States, and on behalf of the people of the United States, I would like to begin by offering my prayers to the people of Manchester in the United Kingdom,” said the president. “I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attack, and to the many killed and the families — so many families — of the victims. We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom.”
“So many young, beautiful innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life,” he added. “I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name. I will call them from now on losers, because that’s what they are. They’re losers. And we’ll have more of them. But they’re losers. Just remember that.”
“This is what I’ve spent these last few days talking about during my trip overseas,” Trump said. “Our society can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed. We cannot stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent people. And in today’s attack, it was mostly innocent children. The terrorists and extremists, and those who give them aid and comffort, must be driven out of our society forever. This wicked ideology must be obliterated, and I mean completely obliterated. Life must be protected.”
“All civilized nations must join to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens.”
Abbas also denounced the “ugly terrorist attack.” He stated: “I do offer my warm condolences to the Prime Minister of Britain, families of victims, and the British people.”
Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed that Trump called British Prime Minister Theresa May “to offer condolences and support.”
