Tapper to Conway: You Want to Talk About Ignoring Terrorism, Why Hasn’t Trump Offered His Sympathy to Canada?
‘A white, right wing terrorist opened fire on a mosque’

EXCERPT:

TAPPER: "I want to ask you. In Quebec City last week, a white right-wing terrorist opened fire on a mosque, a mosque filled with innocent men, women and children. Six people were killed. President Trump hasn't said or tweeted one public word about this. You want to talk about ignoring terrorism, why hasn't the president offered his sympathy to our neighbors in the north?" 
CONWAY: "I know he's very sympathetic to any loss of life. It's -- it's completely senseless. And it needs to stop, regardless of who is lodging the attack. We -- we, of course, are very sad about loss of life here. And -- and he is talking about trying to stop terrorism and people who want to do harm to this country. And I'm sure in the case of our neighbors to the north, I'm glad that the prime minister of Canada is coming here next year -- next week. Excuse me. I'm sure they will talk about that, if he's coming soon, as I understand. But the fact is that he -- I will ask him. He doesn't tweet about everything. He doesn't make a comment about everything. But I can tell you that the entire point that I do think has been misinterpreted many places about why he wants extreme vetting, in this case temporary and through seven very narrowly prescribed countries that the Obama administration, President Obama's administration, and Congress thought needed more -- quote -- 'serious screening.' He is doing that in response to what he sees and he hears in his briefings as the advanced and the continued threat of terrorist acts, not unlike the one that you are citing to our friends in the north. And of course put us on record as always being sad about this, as a senseless loss of life."
