President Trump has spoken out in support of New Zealand in the aftermath of the terrorist attack. Fox News reports:
President Trump offered his “warmest sympathy” and America’s full support to the people of New Zealand following the deadly massacre allegedly carried out by a white nationalist at a mosque during prayer services Friday.
The attack left 49 dead and more than 20 injured.
“My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the Mosques. 49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all!” Trump tweeted Friday morning.
The attacks at two mosques were allegedly carried out by a 28-year-old Australian-born citizen, who is in custody after claiming responsibility. The man posted a white nationalist manifesto, spanning 74 pages, immediately before the massacre, and even broadcasted a horrific live stream of the terror attack.
Combating all terrorism is a priority for the White House.
