Trump Responds to Christchurch Mosque Shooting: ‘Warmest Sympathy and Best Wishes’ for New Zealand

President Donald Trump is expressing his sympathies to New Zealand in light of the horrific shooting that took place at two mosques overnight.

“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,” Trump says. “The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all!

The shooting has been described as a terror attack as New Zealand authorities investigate four people they’ve placed under arrest in connection with the massacre. The prime suspect is reportedly an Islamophobic, far-right white supremacist who praised Trump in a manifesto he allegedly posted online at the time of the attack
