US President Donald Trump has condemned those responsible for the Manchester terrorist atrocity as “evil losers”.
Mr Trump pledged America’s “absolute solidarity” with the UK and said that the time had come for the “wicked ideology” behind the terror attack to be “completely obliterated”.
The president’s words came as he visited Bethlehem during a visit to the Middle East.
Speaking at a press conference alongside Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Mr 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.”
