BREAKING NEWS: Trump calls deadly explosions in Beirut a ‘terrible attack’ and says the US is willing to help Lebanon after at least 78 have been killed and more than 4,000 injured

President Donald Trump described deadly explosions as a “terrible attack” at a news conference on Tuesday, although there is currently no evidence that the blasts were intentional.

A series of massive explosions in the port area of ​​the Lebanese capital turned the city upside down on Tuesday evening, killing at least 78 people and injuring over 4,000 others.

“The United States is ready to help Lebanon,” Trump said during a White House briefing. “We will be there to help. It seems like a terrible attack. ‘

When a journalist asked him if he was sure the explosion was in fact an attack, Trump confirmed that he was, insisting he had “met some of our great generals” and they seem to have the feeling.

“They would know better than I do,” the President continued. “They seem to think … it was some kind of bomb, yes.”

So far, no evidence has been released to the public that the explosions were the result of an attack.

Multiple videos of the explosion show burning and plumes of smoke emanating from a building in the city’s harbor area before a mushroom cloud erupts, causing a shock wave across the city.

The Lebanese government says it is still investigating the source of the explosion, but early evidence suggested the detonation happened when a warehouse containing explosive materials caught fire.

A large stock of ammonium nitrate was stored where the explosions occurred, Lebanese Interior Minister Mohammed Fahmi said. He called for an investigation into how the material ignited.
