President Donald Trump is denouncing what he's calling the "Horrible and cowardly terrorist attack on innocent and defenseless worshipers in Egypt."

Militants attacked a crowded mosque during Friday prayers in the Sinai Peninsula, settling off explosives, spraying worshippers with gunfire and killing at least 200 people in the deadliest ever attack on Egyptian civilians by Islamic extremists.

Trump says on Twitter, "The world cannot tolerate terrorism" and that "we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence!"

Trump's tweet came as he was playing golf at one of his Florida courses with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson.
