New Zealand mosques' attack suspect praised Trump in manifesto

A suspected gunman behind the Christchurch attacks has dubbed the US president as 'a symbol of renewed white identity'.

The Australian-born suspect who shot dead dozens of Muslim worshippers in Christchurch, New Zealand, has published a manifesto citing US President Donald Trump and Anders Breivik, the Norwegian white supremacist who murdered 77 people in Norway in 2011.

The 74-page dossier by Brenton Tarrant, which has been described by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison as a "work of hate", praised Trump as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose".

The 28-year-old, who is now in police custody, also claimed that he had "brief contact" with Breivik and had received a "blessing" for his actions from the mass murderer's acquaintances.

The dossier stated objections to immigration and multiculturalism, and decries the "decaying" culture of the white, European Western world.

2. Is there a full copy of it floating around anywhere?


I would imagine a 74 page document has quite a number of things in it.

7. It's always annoying when news outlets do this


We're all capable of reading. Having someone else tell me what is in a document, instead of simply reading it, is annoying as hell.
