U.S. President Donald Trump condemned the “horrible massacre” at two mosques in New Zealand on Friday, a deadly attack that killed 49 people in what the White House called a “vicious act of hate,” APAreports referring to Trump's official Twitter account. 

“My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the Mosques. 49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do,” U.S. President wrote on his Twitter page.

Earlier, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that the United States strongly condemned the attack.
