Trump's comments came before meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem as part of a two-day visit to Israel meant to jump-start the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and unite the Middle East in the fight against terrorism.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday slammed those behind the Manchester attack as "evil losers" and reiterated his call to drive out terrorists. "All acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks on innocent people but this attacks stands out for its appalling sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives", she said.

The US President, speaking on his Middle East tour, said he won't call the perpetrators monsters because "they'd like that term". An improved explosive device was detonated in the foyer of the venue, which holds up to 21,000 spectators, and 22 people are reported dead with a further 59 injured.

Abbas also started his short speech by talking about the Manchester incident. 59 people were injured, and numerous casualties were children.

Although Trump pointed to multiple people in his remarks, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May said Tuesday that security services believed they had identified the killer but were not sure if he acted alone or not. They're losers. And we'll have more of them. They'd think that's a great name. "They're losers, just remember that".

Trump called on all countries to unite in the fight against terrorism and proclaimed: "This wicked ideology must be obliterated". Life must be protected.

Trump says "civilized nations must join together to protect human life".

Manchester police have not said anything about the suspected motives of the lone male bomber.
