Trump condemns Kansas shooting

Breaking his silence on the murder of Indian engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla in Kansas last week, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that the country was united in condemning it.

Clubbing the violence against Indians with the racial attacks on blacks and Jews, he said: “As we mark the conclusion of our celebration of Black History Month, we are reminded of our nation’s path toward civil rights and the work that still remains.

“Recent threats targeting Jewish community centres and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week’s shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.”

“I am here tonight to deliver a message of unity and strength, and it is a message deeply delivered from my heart,” he said in his first address to the U.S. Congress.
