Watch: Trump Defends White Nationalism After Terror Attack In New Zealand

President Donald Trump on Friday defended white nationalism and said that he does not see the radical view as a rising threat around the world following an attack targeting Muslims in New Zealand that killed at least 49 people.

Trump was given a chance to denounce white supremacist violence hours after 49 people were killed in a mosque by a gunman who praised him by name, Trump instead denied that it’s even a significant threat.

Asked if he thinks white nationalism is a rising threat, the president said: “I don’t really. I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems.”

He went on to say that he thinks it’s too early to draw conclusions about what motivated New Zealand mosque shooter, despite a written manifesto praising Trump and white supremacist views.
