I don't see Donald Trump tweeting about the terrorist attack in Quebec. What happened Mr @realdonaldtrump? Because affected are Muslims?

PM Trudeau called the Quebec mosque shooting a terrorist attack, but after hearing they yelled Allahu Akbar, now blames climate change.

The barbaric Quebec mosque terror attack should be condemned by all parties.
It's a targeted terrorist attack on muslims.

What happened in Quebec last night was a terrorist attack and an act of hate crime, and that's what it needs to be addressed as.

Does it matter? Does it truly matter? It's a terrorist attack either way. People are dead, either way. Is this what matters to you? https://t.co/IRZjb4EX6O
