Donald Trump Jr.is defending Chelsea Clinton after the former first daughter was blasted by NYU students who blamed her tweet for the New Zealand mosque attacks.

After attending a vigil on Friday, a group approached Clinton, saying her words "stoked" the massacre. "I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deep inside-49 people died because of the rhetoric that you put out there".

Alleged gunman, Brenton, 28, is an Australian personal trainer and he allegedly killed 49 people and injured 48 others at two mosques in Christchurch, NZ on March 15.

Trump, Jr.is likely referring to a Tweet Clinton wrote in February in which she criticized comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) which sparked controversy both inside and outside of the Democratic party, as lawmakers and the public, alike, debated over whether the congresswoman's remarks were anti-Semitic. But Chelsea Clinton isn't responsible for that, and she certainly isn't responsible for the actions of a deranged white nationalist in New Zealand. I do believe that words matter. "I believe we have to show solidarity with each other", Clinton told the students. The son of President Donald Trump, 72, didn't hesitate to speak his mind in his tweet and even suggested praise for Chelsea.

Before the incident, she took aim at the "caucasity" of the fact that Clinton was invited, accusing her of "stoking Islamophobia and racism surrounding Ilhan Omar." .

"I'm so sorry", she said.

Clinton was among establishment Democrats who tore into Omar for her suggestion that the wealthy Israeli lobby has an overbearing influence in U.S. politics.

Some of the NYU students told Clinton she wasn't welcome at the vigil.

"What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?" asked a male student nearby, seemingly frustrated.

"Period", Huckabee said, mentioning the 2017 congressional baseball shooting suspect who was a Sanders supporter. "Period. No one "MADE" him do it", his tweet read.
