Another tragedy just occurred in Europe at the hands of a terrorist.
During his overseas tour, Donald Trump took a moment to let the world know he condemned the acts and showed his support for the United Kingdom in a special way.
But one choice phrase made by the President stood out from the rest of his speech, and showed that the President is in fact on the same level as the innocents whose lives were lost too early.
During his speech in Saudi Arabia, Donald Trump denounced the attackers behind the Manchester bombing as “evil losers” who preyed on “innocent children”.
Trump also made the very strong point that they “must be driven out of our society forever”.
The Daily Caller reported:
“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,” 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. 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,” he continued. “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,” he added. “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.”
Later, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed on Twitter that President Trump made the extra effort to offer the Prime Minister of Britain his personal condolences and support.

In the past year alone, the balance of peace and war in the world has tipped drastically towards the latter.
In times like these, countries that work to protect democracy and its citizens need to band together to end the war against terror.
Donald Trump has shown he is willing to take the steps necessary to ensure peace for his people, and is currently in the Middle East negotiating peace procedures with those who will fight against dangerous extremists.
Do you think Donald Trump will effectively lead the efforts against terrorists?
