U.S. President Donald Trump and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May offered strong condemnations on Tuesday of the terrorist attack that occurred in Manchester, England on Monday night.

The British prime minister showed a steely resolve in her message to the British people, vowing that terrorists will never experience victory.

“Let us remember those who died, and let us celebrate those who helped, safe in the knowledge that the terrorists will never win and our values, our country, and our way of life will always prevail,” May said in a statement.

May also praised the actions of emergency responders, while slamming the terrorists as cowards.

“While we experienced the worst of humanity in Manchester last night, we also saw the best. The cowardice of the attackers met the bravery of the emergency services and the people of Manchester,” May said.

For his part, Trump slammed the terrorists as “evil losers” in a statement from Bethlehem in Israel.

“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,” Trump said.

“That’s what they are. They’re losers. And we’ll have more of them, but they’re losers,” the president emphasized.

He also pledged solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom, while calling for an end to terrorism.

“Our society can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed. We cannot stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent people,” Trump said.

The president repeated his call for the expulsion of terrorist ideology from all nations.
