A Trump supporter who yelled ‘all Muslims are terrorists’ outside a mosque targeted in the Christchurch terror attack has pleaded guilty to inciting violence.

Daniel Tuapawa, 33, was wearing a Donald Trump T-shirt when he launched a sickening tirade outside the Al Noor mosque on Wednesday.

‘I’m sick of these f***wits they need to f*** off. All Muslims are terrorists, you need to get out of here,’ he bellowed.

The tradesman from Christchurch was told by a judge on Friday that he faces jail time when he is sentenced.

Speaking to reporters outside court with his hood pulled over his eyes, Tuapawa apologised and said is battling mental health difficulties.

‘I’m very sorry and I’m getting myself fixed for this,’ he said.

‘I just have blackout and that and I’m f***ing very sorry, I’m so sorry about that okay.’

Tuapawa claimed he went to the mosque to look at the flowers but then blacked out and does not remember shouting.

He said he only realised what he had done when police showed him a video, reported Radio New Zealand.

Tuapawa has asked to personally apologise and shake hands with worshippers who attend the mosque.

He was charged with behaving in an insulting manner that was likely in the circumstances to cause violence against persons to start. 

In the terror attack last month, forty-two people were killed at the Al Noor Mosque and eight were gunned down at another mosque.
