  • Jeremy Joseph Christian who allegedly stabbed to death two men on a train

"That's what liberalism gets you", Christian said. You got no safe place.

Also Wednesday, an organizer canceled an anti-Shariah law rally that had been planned for June 10 in downtown Portland. The word "Antifa" that he mentioned is typically used to describe people within this movement who are against nationalism and free speech.

Mr Trump's tweet came days after the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on the President to condemn the OR rampage and speak out against what the advocacy group sees as a rising tide of anti-Islamic sentiment.

Christian faces two counts of aggravated murder, one count of attempted aggravated murder, one count of assault in the first degree, two counts of intimidation and three counts of unlawful use of a weapon.

Two deputies flanked Christian - listed as 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds in court documents - during the brief court hearing. Both are black and one was wearing a hijab.

Court documents say Christian shoved Fletcher in the chest and appeared to pull a folding knife from his pocket and hide it in his hand.

Surveillance video then shows Christian turn his attention to a man, Taliesin Namkai-Meche, who was seated.

Micah Fletcher suffered a neck wound Friday after coming to the defense of two young women who were verbally abused by a man before he allegedly stabbed Fletcher and two other men who died.

Christian served prison time after holding up employees at a convenience store with a gun in 2002, court records show. Her son and another man died.

In the aftermath of the attack the Muslim Education Trust and CelebrateMercy, started a crowdfunding campaign for the victims in order to "respond to hate with love".

"Free speech or die", Jeremy Christian yelled to a courtroom audience that included Micah Fletcher, the surviving victim of Christian's brutal knife attack aboard a Portland train.

Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, was in Multnomah County courtroom Tuesday afternoon for his first court appearance on two counts of felony aggravated murder and other charges for the Friday attack.

Video from train security and passengers' cell phones show how the scuffle quickly turned into a one-sided knife fight. Forde told police he heard Christian say something about "decapitating heads".

After his arrest, Jeremy Joseph Christian sat in the back of a police vehicle and said: "I stabbed the two (expletives) in the neck and I'm happy now".

The loss of life, the random aspect of this violent attack and the racial intolerance exposed by the tragedy have many in the community in a state of shock.

The documents then alleged Christian stabbed Mr Fletcher and Mr Namkai-Meche following a shoving match. "Our prayers are w/ them", he said on Twitter.

The mother of one of the targets of the rant said she was overwhelmed with gratitude and sadness for the strangers who died defending her daughter, 16-year-old Destinee Mangum.

- A video camera inside a patrol vehicle captured Christian saying, "I just stabbed a bunch of (expletive) in their neck".

Earlier Tuesday, the 21-year-old poet and student released a statement, ABC News reported.
