The lack of information did not stop the U.S. president-elect from jumping to conclusions. Around the same time, Berlin's police department tweeted that folks should stay home and “not spread rumors.” Here's the Trump statement in full:
“Our hearts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of today's horrifying terror attack in Berlin. Innocent civilians were murdered in the streets as they prepared to celebrate the Christmas holiday. ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad. These terrorists and their regional and worldwide networks must be eradicated from the face of the earth, a mission we will carry out with all freedom-loving partners.”
Today there were terror attacks in Turkey, Switzerland and Germany - and it is only getting worse. The civilized world must change thinking!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2016
