Train stabbing survivor: Portland has 'white savior complex'

President Donald Trump advocated for minority groups rights in a Facebook post last Tuesday, "Christian supremacist Jeremy Joseph Christian murdered two men during a hate crime in Portland after yelling obscenities at two Muslim women celebrating Ramadan".

Police said they are investigating Christian's alleged extremist views.

The Portland attacker, Jeremy Christian, appeared in Multnomah County court earlier this week, where he faced charges of murder, attempted murder, possession of a weapon, and intimidation.

Police say he went into a racist tirade on the train and stabbed the men who intervened, killing two and wounding a third.

Fletcher was one of three people stabbed after confronting a man on a MAX train for verbally attacking Mangum, 16, and her 17-year-old-friend, who is Muslim and was wearing a hijab. The women moved away from Christian.

"He never disrespected me", Clark said, but added that he changed after he got out of prison.

Portland Stands United Against Hate is planning a demonstration in front of City Hall at 12:30 p.m., and a rally dubbed Portland Stands United Against Fascism is planned for noon in city-owned Chapman Square, according to announcements on Facebook.

The man in his 30s was arrested on Tuesday evening from Wexford city following a search of an apartment there, the police said. Redouane married British woman Charisse Ann O'Leary in Ireland in November 2012 and gave an address in Rathmines, Dublin .

Trump has condemned the stabbing, writing Monday on Twitter: "The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable". He says they must be traumatized from being targets of hate and from the deaths of two other men who also tried to intervene Friday. At a "free speech" march in Portland, he draped himself in an American flag and made a series of derogatory remarks.

The 21-year-old noted that people need to stand up for one another, CNN reported.

"He told us to go back to Saudi Arabia, and he told us we shouldn't be here, to get out of his country", she told KPTV-TV, a local news station in Portland, "He was just telling us that we basically weren't anything and that we should kill ourselves".

Relatives of a man accused of killing two people in OR have offered their condolences to the families of the two men who were stabbed to death after defending two women from an anti-Muslim rant. Some of the vitriol was directed at two girls, one of whom was wearing an Islamic headscarf, police have said.

The attack happened Friday, the first day of Ramadan, the holiest time of the year for Muslims.

The man accused of killing two men during an anti-Muslim rant against two girls on board a train in the United States city of Portland appeared in court shouting slogans and defending his act as "patriotism". The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance.

Portland's Archbishop asked Oregonians to pray for the victims in last week's brutal MAX stabbings and urged them to "take actions working towards peace". Portland's mayor called the stabbing an act of bigotry and terrorism.
