U.S. ready to help New Zealand after mosque shootings, Trump tells prime minister

“I informed the Prime Minister that we stand in solidarity with New Zealand – and that any assistance the U.S.A. can give, we stand by ready to help,” Trump said on Twitter.

In remarks to reporters at the White House, Trump added: “New Zealand has been a great friend and partner for many years. Our relationship has never been better and what they are going through is absolutely terrible. Our hearts are with them and whatever we can do.”

Asked by a reporter if he saw an increase in white nationalism, Trump said he did not see a rise in white nationalism but it may be an issue in New Zealand.

Trump also said he had not seen a manifesto in which the suspected gunman denounced immigrants and praised Trump as “a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.”
