Donald Trump said he did not view white nationalism as a rising threat around the world, as New Zealand is reeling from a white supremacist attack on two mosques that killed 49 people. Asked by a reporter on Friday if he saw an increase globally in the threat of white nationalism, the US president responded: “I don’t really. I don’t know enough about it yet.”There have been more than a dozen deadly white supremacist attacks across the globe in the last eight years. The suspected perpetrator of the massacre during Friday prayers in New Zealand had posted online before the attack and displayed white supremacist symbols on his weapons during the killings. In 2017, he said there were “very fine people on both sides” after a deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
