President Trump accused the media on Monday of trying to find ways to blame him for last week's massacre in two mosques in New Zealand that killed 50 people.
"The Fake News Media is working overtime to blame me for the terrible attack in New Zealand. They will have to work very hard to prove it, "Trump tweeted. "So ridiculous!"
A 28-year-old Australian citizen has delivered the terrible murders of mowing Muslim worshipers at Friday prayers in Christchurch. The armed man demanded responsibility and posted a white nationalist manifesto just before the murder rush.

Piers Morgan wrote a column For the Daily Mail, the headline read: "49 massacred innocent Muslims prove that words can have fatal consequences, Mr. President. If you do not cruelly despise the racist lunatics who claim to be inspired by you, they will be condemned by your silence.
