Speaking in Havana, Cuba Tuesday, President Obama said the United States will “do whatever is necessary” to bring the culprits behind the Brussels terrorist attacks to justice.
“Before I begin, please indulge me,” Obama said to the crowd. “I want to comment on the terrorist attacks that have taken place in Brussels.”
Obama only spent 52 seconds of his speech talking about the attacks in Belgium.
“The thoughts and prayers of the American people are with the people of Belgium,” he continued. “And we stand in solidarity with them in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people.”
“We will do whatever is necessary to support our friend and ally, Belgium, in bringing to justice those who are responsible, and this is yet another reminder that the world must unite.”
“We must be together, regardless of nationality, or race, or faith, in fighting against the scourge of terrorism,” he added. “We can and we will defeat those who threaten the safety and security of people all around the world.”
