LOUISVILLE, Ky.–U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement regarding the terrorist attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand:
“I join all Americans in sending our deepest sympathies to the people of Christchurch, New Zealand, as they mourn the victims of yesterday’s horrific acts of terror.
“There is no room for hate and violence in our society, least of all in the places we turn for mercy and compassion.
“So today, we stand with the New Zealand Muslim community and the faithful of the Linwood and Al Noor mosques in their hour of grief, and pray that all faith communities sustain each other on the healing road ahead.”
