On Tuesday in Bethlehem, President Trump, alongside Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, offered his condolences to the victims in Monday night’s terror attack at the Ariana Grande concert in the U.K., which left more than sixty people injured and 22 dead. Most of these victims were children.
Trump condemned the attacker, calling those who target the innocents “evil losers in life.”
The president made the remarks during a brief media address with Abbas. He assured the international community that the U.S. stands in solidarity with the people of the U.K., before aiming his rhetoric at the attacker.
“So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life. I won’t call them (attackers) 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. The terrorists and extremists and those who give them aid and comfort must be driven out from our society forever. This wicked ideology must be obliterated.”
The White House said Trump was being kept updated on the attacks in Manchester, England, by his national security team.
Authorities in Manchester have confirmed there was one attacker who detonated an explosive device at the concert.
