Donald Trump Jr. ‘liked’ tweet hoping Quebec shooter was a Muslim because it would help his dad

Donald Trump Jr. liked a post on Twitter extolling the “tremendous spike in political capital” his father, President Donald Trump, will receive once “it’s revealed that the Quebec Shooting terrorists are Muslims.”

The original tweet was posted Monday by John Cardillo, a former NYPD officer and syndicated radio host, who incorrectly posited that the attacker was a Muslim. In fact, 27-year-old Alexandre Bissonnette, the lone suspect in the attack that left six people dead and eight wounded Sunday night, is an anti-Muslim, far-right Trump supporter.

Carrillo’s tweet links the Sunday night Mosque massacre to Trump’s executive order restricting immigration from several predominantly Muslim countries. The Trump administration has continuously insisted the order is not a “ban” and does not target one religion, despite the president’s own use of the word “ban.”

Though the Trump administration sought to alleviate fears of conflicts of interest pertaining to the president’s “global business empire” by passing control of the Trump Organization to his sons, questions remain over whether the role the president’s children will play in the White House. According to CNN, Trump’s sons were actively involved in vetting candidates for their father’s cabinet, and were present Tuesday evening with Trump announced his Supreme Court nominee.

Los Angeles Times national reporter Matt Pearce first noticed the like on Tuesday evening. As of this time, Don Jr. has yet to unlike the inaccurate tweet championing the political expediency of a terror attack.

"The reports of the conditions for migrant children at the border should shock all of our consciences. Those created in the image of God should be treated with dignity and compassion, especially those seeking refuge from violence back home. We can do better than this," Moore wrote.
