Trump Sends Prayers To Victim’s Families
U.S. President Donald Trump sent prayers to the victims of the Manchester terror attack, which consisted of at least 22 murders and countless injuries. The President refused to call them monsters, because he felt they would take it as a compliment.
Several children were killed at the Ariana Grande pop concert in Manchester Arena on Monday night. A suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device (IED), according to police.
Trump Calls Terrorists Evil Losers
“As President of the United States, 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,” began President Trump, while working in Bethlehem.
“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 absolutely solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom.”
“So many young, beautiful, innocent people, living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers.”
Event May Change Trump’s Travel Schedule
The New York Times reports:
“The second half of Mr. Trump’s foreign trip was intended to provide a platform for him to explain how his “America First” vision would affect global trade, the war in Afghanistan, the Syrian civil war and the future of NATO and the European Union. But the attack, for which the Islamic State claimed responsibility on Tuesday, seemed certain to scramble the rest of the trip.”
“White House officials said the president’s schedule would proceed as planned. But his interactions with the Continent’s leaders will be dominated by an urgent discussion about the security of public spaces and the world’s response to extremism.”
