Is Trump Normalizing Hate?

It's been 5 days - and Donald Trump has barely said a word about Friday's terrorist attack in Portland, Oregon.

Is that because the terrorist was a white nationalist and he doesn't want to offend his neo-Nazi base?

Portland terrorist Jeremy Christian had his first appearance in court yesterday.

He faces two counts of murder, as well as one count of attempted murder and intimidation.

Meanwhile, the mother of one of the two people who died in Friday's attack has written a personal letter to Donald Trump asking him to take real action against hate and Islamophobia.

He waited three days before even mentioning it, and even then only did so via his POTUS Twitter account...

"The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable. The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance. Our prayers are w/ them."

Trump has fanned the fans of extreme Islamophobia ever since he started running for president. Doesn't he have a responsibility to really condemn this attack?
