Main Stream Media "overtime to blame me" for the attack in New Zealand: President Trump
On Monday, President Trump accused the media of blaming him for last week's deadly shooting at a pair of mosques in New Zealand.
"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 it.
Part of the media coverage of the United States has focused on the alleged gunman's manifesto, which called Trump a "renewed white identity symbol," and some experts have argued that it has fueled white nationalist fervor throughout the world.
Former Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) Made that argument during a Monday morning appearance on CNN.
"I think sometimes you just have to surrender to objective evidence, and that is, it points to him being sympathetic to that point of view," Ellison said. who was the first Muslim elected to Congress and now serves as Attorney General of Minnesota.
Ellison was reacting to Trump's comments on Friday, when the president said he does not believe that white nationalism increase despite the shooting that left 49 people deal
"I don't really, I think it's a small group of people that have very, very serious problems," Trump told reporters.
White House officials have repeatedly denied that Trump harbors white nationalist views.
"The president is not a white supremacist. I'm not sure how many times we have to say that," acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said on "Fox News Sunday."
