"The murder of an ambassador is a violation of all rules of civilized order and must be universally condemned," Trump said in a statement on Monday.
Trump added that the attack was carried out by "a radical Islamic terrorist."
The US president-elect also commented on the recent attacks in Germany and Switzerland on his Twitter page, claiming that the incidents should change the world's thinking.
