Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney defended President Donald Trump on Sunday, calling suggestions his rhetoric on immigration influenced a mass shooting last week at two mosques in New Zealand “absurd.”

“The president is not a white supremacist,” Mulvaney said in an interview that aired on “Fox News Sunday.” “I’m not sure how many times we have to say that.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“Let’s take what happened in New Zealand yesterday for what it is: a terrible evil tragic act.”

New Zealand police have charged 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant in Friday’s mass shooting, which killed 50 people. The accused gunman sent a lengthy manifesto filled with anti-immigrant rhetoric to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern minutes before the attack.

Critics have knocked Trump for not condemning white nationalism strongly enough and suggested the president’s inflammatory rhetoric contributes to violence.
