The terror attacks at two mosques in New Zealand are an example of "absolute evil" and must be condemned, and the United States must be on guard to make sure there are no copycat attacks in this country, Rep. Pete King said Friday.
"It is absolute evil and it's essential that everyone of goodwill and any sense of decency condemn this," the New York Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "It is inhumane, evil and horrible."
He said there is no evidence of copycat attacks being planned, but "something like this, that is so hateful, can inspire hatred and others."
"People of goodwill need to stand and condemn it and stand with our friends in New Zealand and the mosques," said King. "The civilized world will never tolerate this. There is no such thing as a manifesto for death. It has to be condemned."
King also on Friday said he respects special counsel Robert Mueller, and is looking forward to his report.
"From all we've seen and heard, a lot has been overlooked here," said King. "I was on the Intelligence Committee; I can't go into all the things we've heard."
However, he said there was "no premise" for investigating President Donald Trump, where there was much more evidence with Hillary Clinton's campaign.
"If they're going to go into this intensity into the Trump campaign so far after all this time...no evidence of any collusion at all," said King. "If there was collusion and cooperation with the Russians it was with the Clinton campaign."
