Look I don't think any of us are trying to champion terrorists but we were certainly hoping for a more dignified address to the Manchester atrocity than simply using a podium to call the assailant, his go to move, a 'loser'.
If Trump plans to go abroad and not be an isolationist he needs someone on his team that is experience in foreign relations. And since we all know that isn't going to be anyone in the State Dept that position is up for grabs by any reasonable right winger who wants to salvage current partnerships the US has.
This performance is simply shameful. Protocol would be to make contact with he PM and then have a separate scheduled address on the issue. Not to throw it in as part of your ongoing stump speech.
He did the same same thing with the Paris attacks and the same with the nightclub massacre in Florida. His favourite word is "I" and using it as the US chief diplomat when our closest ally has suffered a great blow isn't okay.
When the Paris attack happened John Kerry started referring to ISIL as Daesh and did France. It's an acronym of the groups Arabic name and means to be crushed under foot or one of discord.
Meanwhile we have Trump still speaking to his majority base in the US on a very intimate issue between comrades that needed him to put someone else before himself for once and he didn't.
It was all about him. Im very concerned.
Manchester, you might not be my club when it comes to football, but I'm certainly rooting for you to be stronger together in the face of this heartbreak.
