Washington Post Editorial Board Condemns Trump Response To New Zealand Shootings

Please follow and like us:

The Washington Post editorial board on Friday called out President Donald Trump’ s reaction to the mass shootings at 2 mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Trump reacted to the attack, in which a supposed white supremacist shooter eliminated a minimum of 49 individuals , by declaring that he didn’ t see white nationalism as an increasing hazard all over the world.

That ’ s the incorrect message , ” the Post ’ s board composed in the op-ed. “ Instead, he should state unambiguously that the New Zealand suspect’ s ‘ replacement ’ ideology is an undesirable trope in civilized discourse.”

The board likewise kept in mind in the piece that Trump “ is not to blame for the disaster, in spite of his own history of Islamophobic declarations and a travel restriction that targets primarily Muslim countries.”

But it required him to “ go even more than he has ” by “ condemning the supposed killer, whose nativist rhetoric ” in his manifesto “ overlaps with the president’ s own. ”
