White supremacist in Portland harasses women, murders two men defending them
On Friday, a man on a MAX train in Portland was spewing racial and anti-Muslim insults at two women. When three men tried to stop the hate speech, the man allegedly stabbed them, killing two of the men and injuring a third. The alleged murderer was a white supremacist who Willamette Week interviewed at a "free speech" rally in Portland on April 29.

Many people demanded that President Trump condemn the murder of those standing up to hate speech. After three days of silence, he finally tweeted yesterday that the "violent attacks" against the men murdered for defending a black woman and a Muslim woman were "unacceptable."
