During a press conference in Bethlehem on Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump gave his condolences to the people of the United Kingdom who suffered a heinous attack on Monday night. He promised the UK that the United States and her citizens stood with them in absolute solidarity and then he gave his unadulterated opinion of who the terrorists really are. The President called the Manchester attacker “a loser,” and he then argued that anyone else who resorts to such actions are also “losers.”
“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. 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. 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. 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 comfort, 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.”

The President had been sharing the stage with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas (who is a terrorist and terrorist supporter himself… usually), who also offered his condolences to the people of Great Britain. “I do offer my warm condolences to the Prime Minister of Britain, families of victims, and the British people,” Abbas told the gathered press. There were no reports of laughter as he made his statement, and none of the reporters asked Abbas to explain his long years of support for terrorism in the face of his hypocritical sentimentality. Not that the media ever holds the Palestinian people accountable for anything, anyway.
