U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he does not see a rise in white nationalism but it may be an issue in New Zealand, where a gunman who is believed to espouse those views killed 49 people at two mosques. Asked by a reporter if he sees an increase in white nationalism, Trump said: "I don't really. I think it's a small group of people."

Trump also said he had not seen a manifesto in which the suspected gunman denounced immigrants and praised Trump as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose."
