President Donald Trump offered his condolences Tuesday morning to the victims of Monday night’s bombing attack on a pop music concert in Manchester that left at least 22 dead and nearly 60 wounded.

Speaking during a press conference with Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem, President Trump called upon “all civilized nations” to band together to destroy terrorism.

“I would like to begin by offering my prayers to the people in Manchester, in the United Kingdom.”

The president called the perpetrators of Monday’s attack “evil losers”, adding that the international community must “obliterate” terrorism completely.

“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 the last few days during my trip overseas talking about. 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.

“This wicked ideology must be obliterated - and I mean completely obliterated.”

“All civilized nations must join together to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens to live in safety and peace.
