The mother of a woman who was stabbed to death in a Queensland backpackers hostel last year has publicly condemned Donald Trump for including her on a White House list of terror attacks.
Trump was using her daughter’s murder for “insane persecution” of innocent people, Rosie Ayliffe said in a social media post.
British tourists Mia Ayliffe-Chung, 20, and Tom Jackson were killed at a hostel near Townsville last August. A French national has been charged with the two murders.
The deaths were included on a list of 78 “terror attacks” released by the White House on Monday, after Trump told an audience at the US Department of Defence that the “very very dishonest press” were not reporting terror attacks.
