Show Solidarity with our Muslim neighbors

By now, you’ve likely heard the horrific news of the white nationalist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand. Muslim families were targeted and fifty people were killed. Trump was asked on Friday if white nationalism is an increasing threat around the world. Trump’s answer was reminiscent of his commentary post on the Charlottesville mass shooting for which he was rightfully critiqued harshly worldwide.

“Do you see white nationalism as a rising threat around the world?" A reporter asked Trump on Friday.

"I don't really. I think it's a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess," the President said. "If you look at what happened in New Zealand, perhaps that's the case, I don't know enough about it yet. They're just learning about the person and the people involved. But it's certainly a terrible thing." Trump answered.
