President Donald Trump said he does not consider white nationalism as a rising global threat. On Friday, he talked about the mosque attacks in New Zealand where at least 49 people were killed.

After being questioned about the same, he said, “I don’t really,” He also added that he thinks it is a small group of people that has a very serious problem.

In connection with the shootings, three people were arrested. This includes a 28-year-old accused shooter, who is charged with murder and was due to appear in court on Saturday. The other two remain in custody. Mike Bush, New Zealand Police Commissioner said authorities were investigating.
The suspected shooter live streamed when he shot people. He also posted a manifesto online. The shooter identifies himself as a white man from Australia in the manifesto. He also lists the white nationalists who inspired him.
Donald Trump said that he does not know enough about the New Zealand shooting yet. The authorities are just learning about the person and other people who were involved.
Trump also said that he has not seen the manifesto yet. He posted a tweet reaching out to the people of New Zealand on Friday. In his tweet, Donald Trump conveyed his sympathy and said the U.S. stands by New Zealand.
