Washington Post Editorial Board Condemns Trump Response To New Zealand Shootings

The board also noted in the piece that Trump “is not to blame for the tragedy, despite his own history of Islamophobic statements and a travel ban that targets predominantly Muslim nations.”

But it called for him to “go further than he has” by “condemning the alleged killer, whose nativist rhetoric” in his manifesto “overlaps with the president’s own.”
