Trump Fostered Hate against Muslims

Maybe you should stop spreading so much hate then..

— Ryan Hill (@RyanHillMI) March 15, 2019

“I think Islam hates us”

This rhetoric does not help!

— Ryan Hill (@RyanHillMI) March 15, 2019

You have been spreading hate about muslims since the beginning of your campaign…

You have got to stop!

— Ryan Hill (@RyanHillMI) March 15, 2019

You’re the only President in Modern History to run on banning an entire religion— a violation of the core founding principles of this country!

— Ryan Hill (@RyanHillMI) March 15, 2019

You tweeted out anti muslim videos!


— Ryan Hill (@RyanHillMI) March 15, 2019

You concocted a baseless lie about Prayer Rugs being found at the southern border to once again spread fear of Muslims!

Trump Supporter:"We have a problem in this country, it's called Muslims…when can we get rid of them?"

Trump: "A lot of people are saying that…we're going to be looking at that."

Trump Used Right Wing Terrorism to Promote

When the President tweets a link to a anti-Muslim Conspiracy Theory website (@BreitbartNews) instead of offering his condolences for the 49 Muslims killed in the New Zealand Christchurch Mosque terrorist attack, you no longer should call him "President."#NewZealandShooting

— Ed Krassenstein (@EdKrassen) March 15, 2019

I'm just trying to imagine an acceptable scenario where the President of the United States is briefed on the horror unfolding in New Zealand and he goes to twitter to post a link to the Breitbart homepage.

— Schooley (@Rschooley) March 15, 2019

Maybe he was trying to link to a story about the attack and screwed it up. But from this news source? Or he's completely in a Mueller fugue state and didn't look at the news that doesn't involve him. Either way, I miss sanity.

— Schooley (@Rschooley) March 15, 2019

And that's still his most recent tweet. Does no one in the White House communications office have the ability to post some sort of acceptable sympathetic reaction? The lack of even pretend leadership is stunning.

— Schooley (@Rschooley) March 15, 2019

I know we have no expectations of basic decency and competency these days, but in a functional government you might expect not just an expression of sympathy to the victims, but assurances to American Muslims that every possible security measure will be taken here.

— Schooley (@Rschooley) March 15, 2019

So given the Breitbart tweet was deleted at some point this morning, can we assume hearing about the attack he went there for his news [spin] on it and accidentally tweeted a link?

— Schooley (@Rschooley) March 15, 2019

Not a measured statement, not official condolences, not a link to a page on reputable news site, not even a page on a *disreputable* news site. Just a link to a dodgy, culpable conspiracy site main page. Like a crazy uncle who just discovered the internet sending a rando email

Because he has no empathy

The link to the Breitbart page with its news on the rightist terror attack in NZ later was replaced by this tweet:

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. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2019

John Bolton #NewZealandShooting: "We're obviously greatly disturbed by this, what seems to be a terror attack, this hate crime in New Zealand. We've been in touch with our embassy overnight."

President Trump condemns "horrible massacre" in New Zealand:

— The Hill (@thehill) March 15, 2019

The Hill didn’t mention Trump’s first tweet which later was removed. That tweet just contained a link to Breitbart.

Trumps first response to that right wing terrorism was to tweet (1106390965038788608 from 2019-03-14) a link to the right wing Breitbart site. That tweet showed Trump's character too well and was replaced by

If muslims are killed, this kind of president doesn't waste any words for condolences.

Trump in 2016:

During the South Carolina primary in 2016, Trump enthusiastically told a (fictional) story about the mass murder of 49 Muslims.
