White House official Sebastian Gorka suggested on Twitter late Monday night that the fatal Explosion in Manchester could be timed to coincide with the date of another deadly assault in England four years ago.
Gorka tweeted, “Manchester explosion happens at the 4. Anniversary of the public assassination of Fusiliers Lee Rigby. Dates Matter For Jihadist Terrorists.”

The attack happened on may 22.
Law enforcement authorities treat Monday Explosion in Manchester at a Ariana Grande concert as a “terrorist incident until the police otherwise know.” At least 19 people were killed and more than 50 injured.
