We just received some terrible news from London, England, tonight. The assailants, in this case, are still unknown. According to various reports, police are responding to an unnamed individual plowing their van into a crowd of innocents. President Trump has responded to the incident in a powerful way.
“Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U.K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS.” he tweeted.

Trump also appropriately brought up his travel ban and how it could be a valuable extra layer of security to prevent situations such as this one in America. “We need the courts to give us back our rights,” he said.
According to BBC, at least one person has been killed in the vehicle accident, stabbing, and gunfire. We do not have official reports on where the deaths occurred.
The incident with the van occurred when an unnamed person plowed through five people who were walking along the side of the bridge. As of right now, London Bridge is closed down, and a full investigation is underway.
Buses were rerouted, armed police officers are on the bridge, and we are still waiting to see who all was involved in this act, which can only be described as terrorism. Whether it is a domestic or foreign case of terrorism is yet to be discovered
BBC went on to say that they spoke with a security officer who was overlooking pubs from the bridge area. He claimed that he watched four people get stabbed by three attackers.
A reporter named Holly Jones stated that she was standing on the bridge when the vehicle came barreling towards the crowd of people at about 50 mph. We are disgusted that this kind of terror just keeps on happening.
England is still trying to recover from an incident that occurred just last week. A suicide bomber made it into an Ariana Grande concert and let off a bomb that killed over twenty people. How much longer does this world have to deal with such insanity?
We are glad that President Trump put his message out there offering help to England. The world needs to know that if we plan on stopping people who want do harm to others, we HAVE to work together.
Once the people responsible for this horrid behavior are captured, they need to rot in prison forever. PERIOD.
