Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017 The Trump administration does not believe that white supremacists are “terrorists.” As such, it recently decided to shift federal resources away from tracking them.
Rep. Sean Duffy, a Wisconsin Republican and onetime reality-TV star, believes that acts of terrorism committed by white supremacist and right-wing militias are somehow “not the same” as similar acts committed by Islamist groups such as ISIS.
These supposed distinctions did not help save Srinivas Kuchibhotla, an Indian engineer killed in Olathe, Kansas, by Adam Purinton, a white man who apparently believed Kuchibhotla was Iranian.
