BREAKING NEWS: Trump calls deadly Beirut explosions a ‘terrible attack’ and says US is ready to assist Lebanon after at least 70 are killed and 3,000 injured
President Donald Trump described deadly explosions as a ‘terrible attack’ during a Tuesday press conference, despite no evidence suggesting the blasts were intentional.
‘The United States stands ready to assist Lebanon,’ Trump said at a White House briefing. ‘We will be there to help. It looks like a terrible attack.’
When quizzed by a reporter if he was certain the explosion was in fact an attack, Trump confirmed that he was, insisting he had ‘met with some of our great generals & they seem to feel that it was.
T’hey would know better than I would,’ the president continued. ‘They seem to think … it was a bomb of some kind, yes.’
