The Latest: Trump Condemns ‘Evil Losers’ In UK Concert Blast
BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AP) – President Donald Trump is expressing solidarity with the United Kingdom in the wake of a deadly explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, condemning the “evil losers” behind the blast.
Trump spoke Tuesday after a meeting in Bethlehem with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
Manchester police say an apparent suicide bomber set off an improvised explosive device at the end of the concert. Police raised the death toll to 22 early Tuesday, and dozens more have been reported injured.
