CNN’s Tapper on London Attack: Trump’s Not Tweeting Because the Attacker Is Not Islamic Terrorist

‘President Trump has yet to comment himself personally on Twitter as he frequently does when the attacker is an Islamic terrorist’

TAPPER: "Turning now to new developments in last night's terrorist attacks outside a mosque in London, British media have identified the terrorist as 47-year-old Darren Osborne. He's accused of plowing a van into a crowd of Muslim worshipers marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan. At least one person has been killed, though it's not clear if his death is directly attributed to the incident. Several other individuals have been hospitalized. Late today, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the President's thoughts and prayers are with the victims in London, but President Trump has yet to comment himself personally on Twitter as he frequently does when the attacker is an Islamist terrorist."
