WASHINGTON – US presidential hopeful Donald Trump, famous for his provocative style, did not specifically condemn Sunday’s terrorist attack in Lahore’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, but said on Monday that he alone can solve the issue.
Trump, who has made headlines for spewing anti-Muslim rhetoric during his presidential campaign, tweeted about the ‘radical attack’ in Lahore targeting Christians, claiming he alone can solve the issue, without clarifying what issue he was referring to.
The Republican front-runner, however, did not specifically condemn the attack or express sorrow over the blast.
At least 72 people were killed and 340 injured in the suicide blast on Sunday. The park was crowded with visitors, most of them children and women, when the blast took place.
