Donald Trump on Manchester Arena attack: 'They're not terrorists, they're losers'

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Donald Trump has responded to the Manchester Arena attack last night, saying the terrorists were "evil losers."

The US President, speaking on his Middle East tour, said he won't call the perpetrators monsters because "they'd like that term."

Trump said: “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.

“So many young, beautiful innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life.”

Trump also says the United States stands in "absolute solidarity" with the people of Britain.

At least 22 people have been killed after a lone attacker detonated an improvised explosive device at a concert by US singer Ariana Grande. A further 59 people were injured.
