Trump condemns 'evil losers' who carried out Manchester terror attack

President Trump Calls Manchester Arena Attackers 'Losers'

Meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem, Donald Trump condemned those behind the deadly bombing in Manchester, England, the night before as "evil losers".

President Trump said that it's absolutely atrocious that these "beautiful young people were just going about and enjoying their life" while these utter "losers in life" killed them. I will call them, from now on, losers because that's what they are: "losers".

Children were among 22 people killed and dozens injured in the suspected suicide bombing on Monday night at a pop concert by U.S. star Ariana Grande in Britain's deadliest extremist attack in 12 years.

Trump declared he would not call the terrorists "monsters", a term he believes they would prefer, instead choosing "losers", a longtime favorite Trump insult.

You could tell by the tone of the President that he meant business when he thinks they're a lot more than "losers".

The White House said Trump, who called May from Jerusalem, offered United States assistance in the investigation of the attack at a packed pop concert in Manchester.

At least 22 people were killed by an apparent suicide bomber.

Greater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins, confirmed the attack was carried out by one man although detectives were still trying to establish if he "was acting alone or as part of a network".

Abbas also expressed his "warm condolences" to the victims of the attack and to the British people. They're losers, and we'll have more of them.

"Our society can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed". And in today's attack it was mostly innocent children.

"The terrorists and the extremists and those who give them aid and comfort must be driven out of our society forever". This wicked ideology must be obliterated, and innocent life must be protected.
