In response to the latest terror attack in which at least 28 Coptic Christians were slaughtered and two dozen more injured by gunmen in Egypt, President Trump has put out a strongly-worded statement, saying that “the bloodletting of Christians must end.”
“This merciless slaughter of Christians in Egypt tears at our hearts and grieves our souls,” stated Trump. “Wherever innocent blood is spilled, a wound is inflicted upon humanity. But this attack also steels our resolve to bring nations together for the righteous purpose of crushing the evil organisations of terror, and exposing their depraved, twisted, and thuggish ideology.”

Now traveling through Europe during his first trip as president, Trump has had to take the time to repeatedly school foreign allies in the dangers of terrorism. He has asked for more cooperation from NATO members in the battle against extremism, which is in the process of destroying countries like Syria, and has urged Middle Eastern leaders to “drive out” radical ideologies.
The brutal slaying is the latest terror attack to take place after dozens of Coptic Christians were killed on Palm Sunday when their in churches were attacked, and the country has been in a state of emergency ever since. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the bus attack, but the ministry in Egypt has said that it was an act of terrorism.
