Following the terrorist attack that left Coptic Christians dead in Egypt on the first day of Ramadan, Trump said the bloodletting of Christians must stop.
“This merciless slaughter of Christians in Egypt tears at our hearts and grieves our souls,” he said, after terrorists shot at a bus, killing at least 28 people.
He also pulled no punches on the “depraved, twisted, and thuggish ideology” of terrorists.
“The bloodletting of Christians must end, and all who aid their killers must be punished,” he said.
The President vowed to protect these historic communities from being obliterated.
“Civilization is at a precipice — and whether we climb or fall will be decided by our ability to join together to protect all faiths, all religions, and all innocent life,” he said.
President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi of Egypt said he trusts President Trump to fight this wave of terror.
“I direct my appeal to President Trump: I trust you, your word and your ability to make fighting global terror your primary task,” he said.
So do we.
