Trump blasted for offering ‘best wishes’ to New Zealand shooting victims: ‘This is a massacre — not a wedding’


President Donald Trump finally responded to the massacre of 49 Muslim worshipers in New Zealand, but other social media users were appalled by his casual condolences.
The president tweeted out a link to the anti-Muslim website Breitbart News shortly after the mass shootings, and hours later offered his “warmest sympathy and best wishes” to the victims.
“My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the Mosques,” Trump tweeted. “49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all!”

The statement was widely criticized as inadequate, especially since the gunman claimed Trump and other U.S. conservatives in a lengthy manifesto as an inspiration for his anti-Islam violence
That’s nice but you reacted to this terrorist attack by tweeting a link to Breitbart.

This is like linking Arby’s and then denouncing meat.

Nobody wants your insincere sympathy or ‘best wishes.’ Sentiments that you have expressed are behind these senseless murders. You are complicit in echoing this vitriolic hatred across the globe and emboldening those who would act upon it Trump. You have blood on your hands.

BEST WISHES? You tweeted a link to an anti Muslim website and now you are offering BEST WISHES? An anti immigrant white supremacist shot 49 innocent people because he hates their religion. I wonder where he got the motivation from? You are a disgrace. And demented. Resign.

How do people get radicalized to kill Muslims? Here's one way:
Trump's very words: “If you have people coming out of mosques with hatred and death in their eyes and on their minds, we’re going to have to do something.”
"We have a problem in this country; it's called Muslims."

We get it. You aren’t up to the task, not even the most basic ones. But this statement is miles away from acceptable. Pull it together.

Are you having a stroke? A hallmark greeting card is not an appropriate response to a terrorist attack.

first of all, your "warmest sympathy" is about as cold as an iceberg and you don't say "best wishes" to families who've just lost their loved ones you buffoon!! You should get advise on how to properly address those who've been affected by such a tragedy!!
