On Friday, a crazed shooter attacked two mosques in Christchurch and murdered over 50 Muslims. The suspect is a 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant who praised Trump as a symbol of white identity in a rambling 74-page manifesto posted online before he launched the attack.
In the wake of these, a handful of democrats including anti-trump journalist had grabbed the loss of innocent lives as an opportunity to win a political score over president Trump, saying the violence is as a result of Trumps Inflammatory language.
Trump condemed the act, telling reporters in the oval office that it is “It’s certainly a terrible thing.” while accusing the Fake news media of “working overtime” to blame him…
The Fake News Media is working overtime to blame me for the horrible attack in New Zealand. They will have to work very hard to prove that one. So Ridiculous!

In an attempt to further drag President Trump through the mud, CNN Fredericka Winfield held an interview with Dr. Ahmed, a Muslim Doctor and a foreign policy analyst who was expected to comment on the terrible shooting while describing the Islamophobic, nature of the Trump administration.
CNN’s host quickly cut this segment when the expected goal wasn’t met. Dr. Ahmed was asked how the Trump administration was viewed in the Muslim world?
Responding, Dr. Qanta Ahmed said “you should know this president and this administration is often castigated as Islamophobic, but I move in the Muslim world, in Egypt, in Oman, in Jordan, in Iraqi Kurdistan, where this president is beloved.” Adding that “this president and the Republican Party going back to George Bush is very dearly held.”
CNN quickly cut the segment and moved on.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney defended Trump in an interview that aired Sunday on Fox News, saying allegations that Trump’s rhetoric influenced the attack is “absurd.”
Also, white House counselor Kellyanne Conway called the claims “predictable and outrageous,” blasting the Anti-Trump supporters, “if you’re not expert on this, stop weighing in like you are,” she said. “We don’t need to hear your opinion on every single thing.”
