Trump: Stop Trying To Blame Me For New Zealand

Politico reports:

Donald Trump has angrily complained he is being blamed for the far-right terror attack in Christchurch, which has claimed the lives of 50 people. The US president was criticised following the shootings at two mosques in New Zealand last week, after he initially tweeted a link to Breitbart, a far-right website with a history of anti-Muslim rhetoric.

He later extended his “warmest sympathy” and “best wishes” to the “people of New Zealand, but failed to label the shootings a terror attack or criticise the white supremacist ideology behind it – in stark contrast to his rapid response to Islamist terror attacks.
