Donald Trump After New Zealand Shooting: ‘Don't Really’ Think White Nationalism Is A Growing Threat


One day after a mass shooting in two New Zealand mosques that left 49 people dead and dozen injured, President Donald Trump said he does not see white nationalism as a rising global threat. “Do you see white nationalism as a rising threat around the world?” ABC senior national correspondent Terry Morgan asked after the president vetoed the congressional resolution to blocking his national emergency declaration on the southern border. “I don’t. I don’t really. It’s a small group of people...But it is a terrible thing,” Trump answered. The Thursday night terror attack in Christchurch, which New Zealand prime minister described as “darkest day,” has been linked to a 28-year-old man who wrote a manifesto in which he calls himself a racist. Trump is also named in the 74-page document as "a symbol of white identity."
