President Condemns New Zealand Mosque Shooting

U.S. stands in solidarity with New Zealand

President Trump and the White House condemned the terrorist attacks at two mosques in New Zealand, and said the U.S. will extend any support necessary. He indicated he would be speaking with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Aldan.

“My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the mosques,” the president said in a tweet. “49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all!”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders sent out a separate statement that said, “We stand in solidarity with the people of New Zealand and their government against this vicious act of hate.”

As the Lord Leads, pray with us:
  • For the people of New Zealand who are reeling from the vicious and hateful attacks on the mosques in Christ Church.
  • That Christians would be a source of love and kindness for the people individually affected by the terror attack.
