President Trump condemned the Manchester bombing as the cowardly act of “evil losers.” ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the attack.

“We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom,” Trump said. “So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers in life.”

The president continued: “I won’t call them monsters because they’d like that term. They’d think that’s a great name. I will call them losers from now on because that’s what they are.”

A solemn Trump made the remarks during a joint press conference in Bethlehem Tuesday with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.

Twenty-two individuals, mostly young people, were killed in a bombing late Monday at Manchester Arena in England shortly after an Ariana Grande concert had ended.

Police say they’re investigating the Manchester bombing as a terrorist attack. Salman Abedi, 22, has been named as the bomber. Abedi, who died in the attack, was the son of Libyan refugees.

At a press conference Tuesday, police said the attack was carried out by Abedi using an IED (improvised explosive device).

“We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device which he detonated, causing this atrocity,” said Ian Hopkins, Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police.

Authorities say they’re not sure if the suicide bomber acted alone or was part of a larger terrorist network. The bombing comes just days after President Trump had given a speech before the leaders of 50 Muslim-majority nations in Saudi Arabia, where he urged Muslims to do more to fight terrorism.

Meanwhile, angry Twitter users reacted by slamming London’s Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan, who recently trashed President Trump’s tough stance on radical Islamic terrorism.

In September 2016, Khan blithely advised residents of big cities like New York, Paris and London to get used to terrorist attacks because they’re “part and parcel” of living in a big city. “It is a reality I’m afraid that London, New York, and other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things,” Khan said.

Tellingly, big cities like Tokyo and Seoul—which have minuscule Muslim populations—have suffered no terrorist attacks or suicide bombings. You do the math.
