Our hearts go out to the victims of the Orlando attack, as well as their families, friends, and communities.

I used to live in the Orlando area, so this hateful act hits close to home for me.

That people could be targeted for mass murder because of their sexual preference is unconscionable--as it would be if they were targeted for their race, religion, or gender.

This time, the attack occurred on American soil, but we know too well that terror is a global problem, and we must address it in solidarity with the vast majority of people--including the vast majority of Muslims-- around the world who condemn and reject such barbarity.

I appreciate President Carmona’s kind words and Prime Minister Rowley's thoughtful message of condolence, and promise that we will work with the government and the people of Trinidad and Tobago to address this challenge together, as partners and friends.

- AMB Estrada
