US President-elect Donald Trump has claimed that attacks like the one in Berlin is a ‘purely religious threat which turned into reality’.

"The terrorist who killed so many people in Germany said just before crime, "by God's will we will slaughter you..." This is a purely religious threat, which turned into reality," Trump tweeted.

"Such hatred! When will the US, and all countries, fight back?" Trump asked in another tweet.

The alleged Berlin attacker Anis Amri, 24, from Tunisia posted a video prior to the attack on social media. In the footage, he talked about slaughtering crusaders who had come to kill Muslims.

During the two-minute, 42-second video, Amri, who was killed by police in Milan yesterday, is shown speaking directly to a camera and pledging allegiance to the ISIS group. He also declared his desire to avenge Muslims killed in air strikes and called for attacks against "Crusaders".

Earlier this week, Trump told reporters that they "know my plans" when he was asked about his campaign statements about banning Muslims from entering the country.
