White House: Trump Made It ‘Very Clear’ NZ Massacre Is An ‘Act Of Terror’

The White House on Friday reiterated its support for New Zealand following a massacre at two mosques that left 49 people dead and said President Trump “made it very clear this is an act of terror.”

I just spoke with the President, he made it very clear this is an act of terror,” White House Director of Strategic Communications Mercedes Schlapp told Fox News on Friday. “This is a horrific, evil crime especially targeting these innocent lives at a place of worship. Again, we condemn this, we stand with the families, the people of New Zealand and the President will be reaching out this afternoon to the prime minister of New Zealand.”
