The mother of the backpacker murdered in a Queensland hostel last year has slammed Donald Trump for including her daughter’s murder on the White House list of terror attacks.

The list had been established by the White House ostensibly on the grounds that these terror attacks had been somehow overlooked or minimised by the global media.

Rose Ayliffe, mother of 20-year-old Mia Ayliffe-Chung, made a post to social media claiming that people like Trump were exploiting her daughter’s murder for “insane persecution” of innocent people, and that “any fool can shout Allahu Akbar as they commit a crime.”

The above comment refers to the fact that Smail Ayad was heard to yell “Allahu Akbar” during the attack. Queensland Police, working in conjunction with international agencies, discounted the possibility that the attack was religiously or politically motivated.
