Tweeting from the White House, presumably, Trump lobbed off this message in response to the terror attacks in London, writing (below):

Pretty typical — and insensitive — for The Donald, but it’s what he followed up with that really has people talking.

Here’s the most insensitive of his many tweets about terrorism today (below):

Dude, WTF?!

You know it’s a problem when Ariana Grande is more Presidential than your President.

And seriously… fuck Trump.

Ariana Grande Performs For Thousands Of Fans At ‘One Love Manchester’ Benefit Concert

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND (CBSNewYork/CBSNews) — Concertgoers filled a sold-out stadium in Manchester, England for Ariana Grande’s “One Love Manchester” benefit Sunday, just 13 days after a terror attack outside her performance killed 22 people.

The pop star was joined on stage by Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay and more.

The money raised will go toward assisting the families and surviving victims of the May 22 suicide bombing.

“Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before,” Grande said on Twitter, announcing the show. “Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy. So that is what it will continue to do for us.”

Some 50,000 fans packed the stands, including 14,000 who attended the previous performance.

Inside and out, a heavy police presence was in place to prevent a repeat of the attack. Officers, both seen and unseen, surrounded the venue, using metal detectors to screen concertgoers.

The May 22 terror attack on Manchester Arena claimed 22 lives, including seven children, and injured dozens more.

Salman Abedi, 22, died when he detonated the bomb just as the concert was coming to a close. Police are still trying to uncover details about the suspect network that supported him.

Meanwhile, these fans stood fast in their refusal to let fear rule their lives.

“Myself and all of us around the world are so grateful to you for stepping up and taking action … Last night, this nation was challenged, and you had a decision to make whether to come out here tonight. And this is so beautiful. You looked fear in the face and said, ‘No. This is Manchester…’ Manchester, your bravery is our hope.”

He continued, before introducing Ariana’s performance, by saying:

“Evil will test us. It will show its face again. But because of you, as a worldwide community, we will be fearless, will will be great and we will honor our children. We owe it to them to be brave… Hatred will never win, fear will never divide us, because on this day we all stood with Manchester.”
