Donald Trump Jr. came to the defense of Chelsea Clinton following a confrontation in which the former first daughter was blamed for the New Zealand mosque shooting.

“It’s sickening to see people blame @ChelseaClinton for the NZ attacks because she spoke out against anti-Semitism,” the eldest son of President Trump tweeted Saturday.

At a vigil held Friday for the victims of the massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand which claimed the lives of 49 people, Clinton was lectured by New York University students over her previous remarks condemning anti-Semitic comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar.

“I am so sorry you feel that way. It certainly was never my intention. I do believe words matter,” the pregnant daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, calmly responded to the angry students cluelessly holding her accountable for the horrific tragedy.

Clinton had tweeted her “heartbroken” response to the massacre on Friday.

“Chelsea should be praised for speaking up,” Trump Jr. tweeted, defending Clinton’s condemnation of the remarks by Omar. “Anyone who doesn’t understand this is part of the problem.”

Minnesota Democrat Omar came under fire for her comments and tweets about the “dual loyalty” of congressional members on Israel, with her remarks on the Israel-Palestine conflict and on Israel itself drawing backlash from many, including top-ranking Democrats and her colleagues on the Foreign Affairs Committee.

The confrontation of Clinton and her handling of the tense incident went viral and prompted an outpouring of support for 39-year-old, soon-to-be mother of three. Many conservatives joined Trump Jr. in their support of Clinton and criticism of the students.

Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens, who faced her own social media firestorm when the left bought into the New Zealand shooter’s ploy to blame her for the tragedy, commented on Clinton’s experience.

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld caught the underlying irony in the defense of Clinton by conservatives on Twitter.
