Ellison: Trump's failure to mark Minnesota mosque bombing an 'outrage'

He added: 'We've had a series of crimes committed, alleged hate crimes, by right wing individuals in the last six months that turned out to actually have been propagated by the left.

As for Gorka, his conclusion on North Korea was something of a warning: "The message is very clear: Don't test this White House, Pyongyang!"

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit organization that tracks hate crimes in the USA, told Anadolu Agency the Trump administration's silence fits into its pattern in response to anti-Muslim attacks.

"The question of who does it is a question". "You have to check them and find out who the perpetrators are".

"You know, there's a great rule, all initial reports are false, you have to check them and you have to find out who the perpetrators are". He has not been so fast to cry terrorism after the Minnesota bombing, despite the fact that Minnesota's governor called the attack terrorism.

"That's fine, and I'm sure the president will do that", he responded.

Gorka also commented on the infighting within the White House and its coverage in the press, calling it "lazy journalism".

Local Muslim leaders are speaking out against Gorka's comments as well. Trump only applies the "wait & see" mentality when it doesn't fit his agenda.

"When it comes to what North Korea has been doing in flagrant breach of all global requirements, when it comes to nuclear weapons testing or ballistic missile testing, the ball is in Pyongyang's court", Gorka said.

Gym posts sign that reads 'no f-king cops'
A military veteran was shocked to see the sign outside the East Atlanta Village gym and alerted the news station. Chambers tells WXIA-TVthat his gym has "had an explicitly stated "No Cop" policy" since it opened.

While President Trump is frequently attacked for tweeting his comments and opinions on events, he is now being criticized for not publicly reacting on a bombing at a Minnesota mosque.

"He is the president of this country, and this happened to us". K., we will be there - WE ARE WITH YOU.

But after watching Trump's deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka address the bombing on MSNBC (above), I long for silence. When somebody shouts, "Alluah Akbar" as they're stabbing a police officer, it's pretty clear it's not a case of the mafia robbing a bank.

On the flip side, Trump's often eager to jump into breaking stories and declare jihadist terrorists were to blame.

It was later revealed by authorities in the Philippines that the casino was robbed and it was not linked to terrorism.

For the people of Minnesota, whose mosque was attacked on Saturday, however, Trump has nothing to say. "They will be annihilated, but also delegitimize the ideology, so it will become as heinous and as rejected as fascism and Nazism is today", Gorka said.

Trump has responded immediately to a certain kind of attack - those that reinforce anti-Islamic rhetoric.

The mosque does not have outside security cameras, which might have proved helpful in the investigation.

"It's a complete failure of leadership", said Heidi Beirich, the center's director for its Intelligence Project, which tracks hate crimes.
