President Donald Trump has just used similar languages to describe immigrants entering the United States, as the alleged mass shooter did to justify killing nearly 50 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand.
On Friday, Trump issued his first veto of his presidency to override a congressional blockade of the national emergency he declared at the United States southern border. During the veto ceremony, Trump explained why he felt a national emergency was eligible to stop immigrants from entering the United States.
"People hate the word" invasion ", but that's it, he says according to the White House pool report.
It's chillingly similar to the language the biggest suspect in Friday Christchurch's terrorist attack explained why He chose to gun down at least 49 Muslims. In the pounding 74-page manifesto, the 28-year-old suspect shooter was sent online just before the attack, he writes that he committed the killings "to show the invaders that our countries will never be their countries . "
It is also the same language the man who killed 1
But his rhetoric about both Muslims and immigrants echoes some of the same exact troops that white nationalist extremists often penetrate – and it has long been.
Before the 2018 mid-term election, Trump tried to repent of fear and Gin up Republican support by tagging a so-called Central American caravan trying to enter America also an "invasion".
"It's an invasion. I don't care what they say. I don't care what the fake media says. It's an invasion of our country," Trump said during a rally last November as his supporters chanted. : "Build the wall."
At the same time, Trump says he does not believe that white nationalists like the alleged terrorist in New Zealand are becoming a global problem. "I think it is a small group of people" when he was asked Friday, he said if he was concerned about the spread of hateful ideology around the world.
