President Donald Trump on Sunday called the attacks in London a "horrific terrorist attack," adding that he will do whatever is necessary to prevent such threats from reaching the United States.

"We renew our resolve, stronger than ever before, to protect the United States and its allies from a vile enemy that has waged war on innocent life," Trump said while attending the Ford’s Theatre Annual Gala, according to pool reports.

"And it has gone on too long. This bloodshed must end. This bloodshed will end. As president, I will do what is necessary is to prevent this threat from spreading to our shores."

Trump, who had earlier tweeted an assortment of remarks about the attack both Saturday night and Sunday morning, also said he spoke with British Prime Minister Theresa May to "express our unwavering support," according to the pool report. He also said the U.S. will do everything in its power to assist the United Kingdom to "bring those that are guilty to justice" and that "American sends our thoughts and prayers."

The Saturday night terrorist attack claimed seven lives, left dozens more hospitalized and ended with police shooting dead three attackers.
