Gorka To North Korea: 'Don't Test This White House'

The damage outside of the Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington Minnesota after an explosion damaged a room and shattered windows as worshippers prepared for morning prayers

Despite escalating warnings coming from the White House, Gorka said the ball is in North Koreas court to "stand down the rhetoric".

Trump remains silent but adviser Sebastian Gorka suggests Minnesota attack could have been staged. "So lets wait and see, lets allow the local authorities to provide their assessment and then the White House will make its comments".

Trump has been criticized for not issuing a statement on the attack, which has been described as "a criminal act of terrorism" by Minnesota governor Mark Dayton, and is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Silence after attacks where Muslims are the victims is not uncharacteristic for the president, who has been previously lambasted for a perceived double standard that critics claim he applies when denouncing terrorism. All you have to do is shout something to get the White House to believe you. Thankfully, nobody was injured, but the imam's office was damaged.

The phrase was circulated by white supremacists to describe themselves in the 1990s, and Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was somewhat inaccurately considered a lone wolf by law enforcement - which launched Operation Lone Wolf in 1998 against violent racists.

"These are the moments when we have to come together as the nation and support the executive", he said, adding: "Anybody, whether they're a member of Congress, whether they're a journalist: If you think your party politics, your ideology trumps the national security of America, that is an indictment of you". You do know that.

Top adviser Sebastian Gorka was asked why President Trump had not yet issued a statement on Saturday morning's attack on Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Gorka argued that there have been "alleged hate crimes by right-wing individuals" that were actually "propagated by the left".

Experts said that Gorka seemed to have forgotten about the 1995 Oklahoma bombing, carried out by far-right extremist Timothy McVeigh, in which 168 people were killed.

While President Trump is frequently attacked for tweeting his comments and opinions on events, he is now being criticized for not publicly reacting on a bombing at a Minnesota mosque.

"I'm not going to give social media advice to a man who basically won the election in large part thanks to his understanding of social media and to destroy the fake news industrial complex's predictions about who would win the last election, so just hold your horses, count to 10, and the president will do what he deems fit", said Gorka.

The Council for American-Islamic Relations said a recent study showed a 584 percent increase in hate crimes against Muslims from 2014 to 2016, when Trump was elected president.
