An unidentified man wearing a Donald Trump T-shirt "yelled abuse at members of the Muslim community" gathered at Masjid Al Noor Mosque, one of the mosques targeted in the Christchurch terror attack, according to stuff.co.nz. More than 40 of the 50 victims murdered by a white supremacist during last month's terror attack died there.

"He was there for about 15 minutes, he also kicked and tried to damage some of the memorial items along Deans Ave in front of the Masjid,” said one person who witnessed the incident.
