Trump accuses media of blaming him for Christchurch mosques attack

Washington DC [USA]: US President Donald Trump has accused the fake news organizations of working overtime to blame him for the Christchurch mosques attack in New Zealand.

Trump has described the campaign against him as "ridiculous".Trump tweeted: "They will have to work very hard to prove that one. So Ridiculous!".Although the White House has rejected the claims that Trump was backing white nationalist views, some American media has been focusing on the terrorist's manifesto which described Trump a "symbol of renewed white identity."

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said the President is not a white supremacist. Trump on March 16 said that he did not see a rise in white nationalism across the world after the terrorist had called the US President 'a symbol of renewed white identity.'

New Zealand is currently on a state of high alert after Tarrant, who is believed to have lived in Dunedin, killed 50 people in the Al Noor and the Linwood mosques in Christchurch on March 15.

Tarrant live-streamed his gruesome act on Facebook for 17 minutes.New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has condemned the terror strikes and had described the attack as "one of New Zealand's darkest days".She said the country "will not and cannot be shaken"by the attack. Ardern said the country's gun laws will be changed and become stricter.
