6:05 am
numbers, how often are these types of incidents happening in the u.s. and beyond? in a lengthy manifesto, the new zealand shooter disagreed with president trump's policies but called him a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose. >> his language, his actions, his words, his policy positions, his dog whistling has electrified those groups. >> that's absurd. donald trump is no more to blame for what happened in new zealand than mark zuckerberg is because he invented facebook. >> reporter: the president on friday denied there's a growing worldwide threat from white national is. >> i think it's a small group of people that have very, very serious problems. >> reporter: experts disagree, the fbi anti-defamation league, southern poverty law center and others all report more attacks by white nationalists in recent years. >> it is on the rise, and the president should call it out, but sadly, he's not doing that.
6:06 am
>> it's a long way to attributing any kind of real link between what the president might say or tweet and the extraordinary type of madness that leads someone to massacre people in large numbers. >> reporter: but the president's latest tweets are angering people in washington, calling the late senator and war hero john mccain "last in his class" accusing him of sending the "fake dossier about ties between the trump campaign and russia to the fbi and to the media." keep in mind, mccain did say before he died that he did turn that over to the fbi for analysis, but he denied that he was the leak to the media on that dossier. scott? >> tracie, thank you very much. as all of this plays out in washington, we're learning the australian suspect will be tried in new zealand. a discussion on gun control will be held in the country later today. 50 people are now dead, dozens are coming to remember those lives lost.
