US President Donald Trump has denounced the killing of an Indian techie in Kansas saying the nation condemns "hate and evil." Trump began his State of the Union address on February 28 by referring to racism and bias crimes, including the killing of Srinivas Kuchibhotla on February 22, and the threats against Jewish institutions and desecration of their cemeteries.
"Last week's shooting in Kansas city reminds us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms," the president. Meanwhile, at a media briefing after Trump had completed his address, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sander said: "The President is keeping the family of the victim, who was senselessly killed, in his thoughts, and we're praying for the full and speedy recovery of those who were wounded."
"As more facts come to light, and it begins to look like this was an act of racially-motivated hatred, we want to reiterate that the President condemns these and any other racially—or religiously—motivated attacks in the strongest terms," Sander said. "They have no place in our country, and we will continue to make that clear," Sander asserted.
