Donald Trump has blamed the deadly truck crash in Berlin on “Islamist terrorists” — saying they targeted “innocent” Christians as they “prepared to celebrate the Christmas holiday.”
The President-elect made the claims as he condemned the suspected terror attack, which left at least 12 people dead and scores more injured, in a statement on Monday night.
“Our hearts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of
today’s horrifying terror attack in Berlin,” Trump said. “Innocent
civilians were murdered in the streets as they prepared to celebrate the
Christmas holiday. ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually
slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part
of their global jihad. These terrorists and their regional and worldwide
networks must be eradicated from the face of the earth, a mission we
will carry out with all freedom-loving partners.”
Trump also fired off a tweet in which he hinted at taking a stand against global terrorism.
