Trump adviser says Minnesota mosque blast could be 'fake hate crime'

Trump adviser says Minnesota mosque blast could be 'fake hate crime'

Asad Zaman, the director of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, slammed Gorka's remarks.

When asked why Trump immediately responded to the London terrorist attack in June but had not mentioned the Minnesota bombing days after the incident, Gorka questioned if it was a "fake hate crime".

After a bombing at a Minnesota mosque, some have criticized President Trump for not commenting on the attack. In June, he condemned a terrorist attack in the Philippines that might have just been a robbery, and he spoke out against the London attacks nearly instantly via Twitter.

And Minnesotans and others are still waiting for the president to condemn the attack.

And Trump certainly has had time to. "He seems to want to tweet about security and terror issues".

The mosque does not have outside security cameras, which might have proved helpful in the investigation.

"These are the moments when we have to come together as a nation and support the executive", he said. "We are thankful that there were no injuries, but that does not diminish the serious nature of this act".

A White House adviser with Nazi links dismissed the existence of right-wing domestic terrorists as an Obama plot to "make Americans stupid". According to Thrush, it read: "The President has been and is continuing to be updated and we are monitoring situation for now".

The comments led to criticism of the official, who has ties to far-right activists in Hungary and was sacked from a consultancy role by the Federal Bureau of Investigation over his anti-Islam rhetoric, according to United States outlet, the Daily Beast.

The FBI hasn't said if it has arrested anyone or if it is pursuing any suspects. Waiting for an investigation to be complete has not been something Trump has done when the perpetrators have been Muslim.

Soon after USA media took note of what happened, there was Donald Trump, retweeting a Fox News report on the apparent attack. "He has to come here and at least express his feelings and say this is bad".

Trump's rhetoric in response to suspected terrorism has been so profoundly irresponsible that the Associated Press published a fact-checking piece in June that said the president "can't be counted on to give accurate information to Americans when violent acts are unfolding overseas". Attacks perpetuated by Muslims draw his attention and sharp tongue, they argue, while violence targeting Muslims is overlooked.

The Council for American-Islamic Relations said a recent study showed a 584 percent increase in hate crimes against Muslims from 2014 to 2016, when Trump was elected president.
