What we're seeing here is an internationally cooperative terrorist movement  built via online radicalization - a movement the President of the United States openly stokes while curtailing the mechanisms combating it. Just last week, Trump defended his Aug.2017 comments after the Charlottesville neo-Nazi protests where he said there were 'very fine people' among the neo-Nazis. Candidate and President Trump's fear-mongering, racist rhetoric targeting migrants, Muslims, and other people of color is well-documented - and white supremacists love it. When asked if he thinks white nationalism is a threat after the Christchurch terrorist attack, President Trump said: 'I don't really. I think it's a small group of people...'This a dangerous lie, to say the least.

"On June 23, 2017, the Trump administration cut funding ($400,000) from the "Countering Violent Extremism" program which backed an anti-white supremacist organization founded by former neo-Nazis. And according to The Daily Beast, the DHS disbanded their Domestic Terror Unit last year:

The Department of Homeland Security has disbanded a group of intelligence analysts who focused on domestic terrorism, The Daily Beast has learned. Numerous current and former DHS officials say they find the development concerning, as the threat of homegrown terrorismincluding white supremacist terrorismis growing.

The Trump administration claims to be tough on terrorism, but they only appear to care about terrorism committed by brown people. So why doesn't President Trump take the threat of white supremacist terrorism seriously? Does he recognize they are part of his base? Does he espouse these views himself? Regardless of the reason, the President is putting lives at risk with his inaction. White supremacist terrorists are behaving like ISIS online and we are not implementing the tactics that we used against ISIS to combat their online radicalization and recruitment. In fact, Twitter reportedly won't ban white supremacists because it would also mean some Republican politicians would be banned too."
