Travel Pool 6: POTUS on Manchester

From remarks in Bethlehem, just concluded. More to come with assist from co-pooler Phil Rucker

"As President of the United State, on behalf of the people of the united States, I would like to begin by offering my prayers to the people of Manchester in the United Kingdom. I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attacks, 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.

So many young, beautiful innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life. I won't call them monsters because they would like that term. They would think that's a great name. I will call them from now on losers, because that's what they are. They're losers. And we'll have more of them. But they're losers. Just remember that.

This is what I've spent these last few days talking about during my trip overseas. Our societ can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed. We cannot stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent people. And in today's attack, it was mostly innocent children. The terrorists and extremists, and those who give them aid and comffort, must be driven out of our society forever. This wicked ideology must be obliterated, and I mean completely obliterated. Life must be protected.

All civilized nations must join to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens"
