Donald Trump vows to do whatever is necessary to protect US

President Donald Trump said Sunday he will do whatever is necessary to protect the United States from a "vicious enemy" that he has waged a war against the innocent for too long, promising: "This bath Of blood must end, this bath of blood will end ".

Trump commented on the attack on the vehicle and the knife that killed at least seven people in London at the conclusion of a fundraiser for the Ford Theater, scene of one of the most famous blood acts of the history American: the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

"America sends our deepest thoughts, prayers and condolences to the victims of this massacre, and we renew our determination, more than ever, to protect the United States and its allies from a vicious enemy that has struck the War against innocent life and it lasted too long, "Trump said in his first public comments on the attack Saturday in a busy section of London. He previously commented via a series of Twitter publications.

"This bloodbath must end, this bloodbath will end," said Trump, wearing tuxedo, standing on stage with his wife, the first lady Melanie Trump.

"As President, I will do what is necessary to prevent this threat from spreading to our shores and working every day to protect the security of our country, our communities and our people, he declares.

Trump said he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May to express America's "unwavering support" and offer assistance to the United States as the British government works to protect its citizens and to bring the perpetrators to justice. justice.

After more than 20 people were killed in a bomb attack last month at a concert in Manchester, England, Trump condemned the assault as "bad losers" and called on nations to Fighting terrorism.

Earlier on Sunday, Trump had criticized the mayor of London after seeking to reassure the residents about a reinforced police presence following the attack, the country's third in the last three months, arguing on Twitter that the leaders "Cease to be politically correct" and focus on "Security for Our People".

The Mayor's spokesman said he was too busy to respond to Trump's "misinformed" tweets.

In a series of tweets that began Saturday, Trump also pushed his blocked travel ban, mocks supporters of gun control and promised that the US will be there to help London and the UK.

Trump challenged London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying there was "no reason to be alarmed". Khan spoke these words during a television interview on Sunday in the context of London reassurances about an increase in the presence of the police they could see.

"No reason to be alarmed," Khan said, describing a more visible presence as "one of the things that the police and we all have to do to make sure we are as safe as possible."

Trump was not satisfied and responded on Sunday with a trio of tweets:

"We must stop being politically correct and go to the security affair for our people. If we do not become intelligent, it will only get worse."

"At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in a terrorist attack and the mayor of London says there is no reason to be alarmed!"

Trump ended up with: "You notice that we have no debate about guns now? It's because they used knives and a truck!"

Khan's office rejected the tweet saying that the mayor "is actively working with the police, emergency services and government to coordinate the response to this horrible and cowardly terrorist attack and provides leadership and comfort to the Londoners and Visitors to our city. Things to do that respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet that deliberately does not put into context his words asking Londoners not to worry when they see more policemen, including armed officers, on the streets.

Trump's first comment after the attack came Saturday night on Twitter. He has promoted a travel ban proposal for visitors from six predominantly Muslim countries and refugees from around the world who have been blocked by US courts.

Last week, the Trump administration formally requested the Supreme Court, the highest court in the United States, to allow the ban to take effect, arguing that the restriction of immigration by refugees and visitors, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen is necessary to protect US National Security. A date for the court to hear arguments in the case was not immediately set.

"We need to be smart, vigilant, and tough, we need the courts to surrender our rights, we need the travel ban as an extra security level!" Trump tweeted Saturday after the attack.

US lawmakers from both political parties criticized Trump for lifting the ban on traveling and assaulting Khan.

Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, the best Democrat on the Senate's intelligence committee, said on CBS "Face the Nation" that he was worried about Trump's call for a travel ban, "although Courts have continued to reduce this ".
