Donald Trump fails to personally address terror attack on London mosque and murdered Muslim woman

Source: Independent

4 hours ago

Donald Trump has failed to personally acknowledge the attack on members of a mosque in London, and the murder of a Muslim teenager in Virginia, prompting critics to attack his silence.

The White House has commented on the Finsbury Park attack, saying that they have reached out and offered to help in any way possible. But Mr Trump himself has not commented directly, instead taking to Twitter to attack Democrats and endorse Republican candidates.

The President's critics have argued that while he is often quick to condemn acts of terrorism carried out by Muslims, his reaction to terrorism committed by white people is anything but swift.

“Nothing from Trump,” the writer and activist Shaun King tweeted in response to Justin Trudeau’s condolences to London. “[He] tends to generally not mind when white men kill or maim people — particularly if they kill Muslims”.

2. Did he ever even comment on the 7 dead from the USS Fitzgerald?

I mean, he doesn't do that (too busy whining and bragging about his Inauguration "crowds" he certainly won't say anything about Muslims.

6. Failing to address dead Muslims appeals to his base.

Also he is a soulless douchebag who cares for no one but himself, unless there are TV cameras around.

Not addressing the dead Navy crew, that's puzzling even for him. Maybe he thinks it makes him look weak that one of our ships made a mistake? Whatever the reason, it's one more thing that's going to irritate his base.

15. If that's the case, then I fail to see a real difference between his base and Daesh's base.

16. He is so vile that there are no words in the English language to describe how vile

he truly is. Now he issued a bullshit statement on Otto Warmbier that was so dishonest, so hypocritical that it made me physically sick reading it. He had the nerve to spew empty platitudes about "basic human decency" al the while he's cozying up to the Saudis who recently sentenced a 17 year old boy to death by CRUCIFIXION, for chrissakes, for PROTESTING. Fuck them, and fuck that fucking fuck who's currently infesting the White House.

20. Crucifixion in Saudi is worse than you think

They behead you, then tie your body to a cross and leave it there for days as a warning to the others.
