president trump has condemned the new zealand attack. 50 killed and more than 30 souther 30 others injured when a white nationalist opened fire . president trump was asked about the issue of white nationalism last week. >> do you see today white nationalism as a rising threat around the world? >> i don't really. i think it's a small group of people that have very serious problems. if you look at what happened in new zealand perhaps that's the case, i don't know enough about it yet. we are just learning about the person and the people involved but it's a terrible thing. >> joining us live is bryan levin from the center for hate and extremism. we appreciate you coming on today. we heard from president trump there and critics have said that the president is sort of
4:31 pm
downplaying the threat of white nationalism in this country and abroad. what do you make of the response that he has given so far to the shootings in new zealand? >> it's inaccurate and it really stands in contradiction of some of the main reports that are out there. euro pole for instance found white ring extremists have doubled. hate crimes in the united states according to the fbi were up 17% in 2017 and the center for the study of hate and extremism at cal state found in 2018 and 30 of america's largest cities including san francisco which hit a decade high and it might've been an all-time high in 2018, the fifth consecutive increase for america's major cities in 2018.
4:32 pm
we've also found at our centers an increase in homicides by white nationalist and for right- wing extremists. i really don't know what facts he bases his contentions on but even his own report from 2018 mentioned quite significantly the threat of violence from white nationalist. >> what do you attribute this rise to? >> great question. there are several things. one is, there are charismatic political leaders who have a message that is attractive to white nationalists particularly with respect to immigration. we have seen this happen around the world. in europe, far right parties are pulling in the double digits. not conservative parties but far right parties.
4:33 pm

4:34 pm
hearings. it would bode well that we do some things within the state too. one thing real quickly, this week there will be hearing to sacramento to help the state better track hate crimes and i think everyone should support their bay area legislator in that regard. a lot of things that can be done at the local as well as national level. >> what are some of those steps at the national level and local level that can be taken? >> first, we have to recognize that this kind of threat is a national security domestic terror threat. also with regard to the information sharing systems with respect to law enforcement, we have to have them put more of a focus on white nationalists and many of the local law enforcement involved in these joint task forces know about this.
4:35 pm
the bully pulpit, the political leaders have to be strong and say this kind of islamophobia and terrorism has no place in the civilized society and when muslims are slaughtered it's terrorism too. >> thank you for your time. be sure to stay with us for the very latest on the new zealand mosque shooting and you can also get updated information on and their social media sites. the department of transportation is investigating the faa approval of boeing 737 max jetliners. we have the latest from washington. >> all boeing 737 max airplane still grounded as investigators continue looking into the cause of the crash. preliminary data is similar to that of another 737 crash in indonesia.
4:36 pm
the findings reinforcing critics to say the faa acted too slowly. >> on monday the ceo said flat out, the pilot have flight control issues and at that point i believe they should have acted on that. >> their opening investigation into the faa approval of the 737 max focusing on the anti- stall system and whether the faa knew it was faulty. boeing says it will cooperate fully with the investigation riding in part, as part of our standard practice we examine our aircraft design and operation and when appropriate institute product updates to further improve safety but that doesn't go far enough for some passengers who say they will think twice before flying on another 737. >> we really should ground those. >> industry experts are predicting a minimal impact to the bottom line for boeing.
4:37 pm
>> i expect orders to continue as long as they can fix the problems. >> families say there claiming to see boeing saying the company is ultimately responsible. today is transit driver appreciation day and bart is using the opportunity to think it's train operators. the drivers not only operate the train but they are the eyes and ears of bart and handle issues including mechanical problems, emergency situations and evacuations so they are encouraging both writers and staff to think the train operator today. >> we want to highlight the front line in employees. it's important for anyone on the job to get that extra appreciation.
4:38 pm
and especially for bart in the bay area we are caring 400,000 people during the week day and we cannot do that without the train operators. >> they also have thank you posters on display for writers to sign. a poppy showdown. how two months of a good thing has closed a popular tourist spot. lots of sunshine out there but a little rain in the forecast. i time it out for you and we talk about the fog as well in the forecast next.
