( Fox News ) President Donald Trump spoke out on the latest London terror attacks on Sunday night, vowing to do whatever was needed to protect his country from a “vile enemy.”
Giving his first public comments on the attacks, Trump said, “This bloodshed must end, this bloodshed will end.” He was appearing with First Lady Melania Trump at a fundraiser for Ford’s Theater in Washington, the site of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.
“America sends our thoughts and prayers and our deepest sympathies to the victims of this evil slaughter and we renew our resolve, stronger than ever before, to protect the United States and its allies from a vile enemy that has waged war on innocent life, and it’s gone on too long,” Trump added. “As president I will do what is necessary to prevent this threat from spreading to our shores and work every day to protect the safety and security to our country, our communities and our people.”
The president said he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May to express America’s “unwavering support” and offer aid. He tweeted a string of comments in the hours after the attack, offering help for the U.K. and criticizing political correctness, among other things.
