Daily Mail Brazenly Labels New Zealand Shooter As “Trump Supporter”

Bright Start News reported earlier today about a headline from UK’s Daily Mail regarding the tragic New Zealand mosque massacre.

The article’s lengthy title claims the shooter is a Trump supporter:

FORTY-NINE worshippers are slaughtered and dozens injured at two New Zealand mosques after Trump-supporting white supremacist opens fire and live-streams the massacre: Woman and three men – including one in a suicide vest – are arrested

According to The Gateway Pundit, the suspect’s manifesto only mentions the word “Trump” once:

…A quick word search for โ€œTrumpโ€ turns up this one and only mention:

“Were/are you a supporter of Donald Trump?

“As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure. As a policy maker and leader? Dear god no.”

Given that NOTHING Trump has ever done or said can be construed as โ€œwhiteโ€ nationalism, weโ€™re not sure what this guy is talking about. He provides no examples to support his thesis, however, heโ€™s pretty clear that he doesnโ€™t like Trump as a policy maker and leader. โ€œDEAR GOD NOโ€
