#AttentatNice is an attack on us all. An attack on democracy & human rights. Denmark is with France and the victims' families in the sorrow— Lars Løkke Rasmussen (@larsloekke) July 15, 2016
Political Spokesperson Nicolai Wammen of the opposition Social Democrats called the attack "cowardly and vile", saying his thoughts were with the victims.
The Social Liberal (Radikale Venstre) Party leader Morten Østergaard echoed Wammen's sentiments, describing the events in Nice as "a tragedy", while former leader Margrethe Vestager, now European Commisoner for Competition, said "The sorrow of the families and friends and France is our sorrow too".

Liberal Alliance leader Anders Samuelsen said that "the feeling of helplessness should be replaced by the will to act" while also condemning the "atrocious" attack.
