Democrats attack Trump's response to El Paso and Dayton shootings

06 Août, 2019, 08:40 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau
  • Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke

"The things that he has said, both as a candidate and then as president of the United States, this can not be open for debate". Hours later, a gunman killed 9 people, including his sister, after opening fire in a busy bar district in Dayton, Ohio.

"White supremacy is not a mental illness".

After the shooting on Saturday, Trump called the tragedy an "act of cowardice" and said there "are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing people".

It should be noted that O'Rourke's remark that the president is calling asylum-seekers "animals" might be in reference to a deceptively-edited clip that made the rounds in May of 2018. "[First Lady] Melania and I send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the great people of Texas".

Appearing on Morning Joe, O'Rourke tore into the media for ignoring the writing on the wall.

TAPPER: During one of the debates, your 2020 opponent Governor Jay Inslee of Washington said that President Trump is a "white nationalist".

"I mean, connect the dots about what he's doing in this country", O'Rourke continued.

He called for a shared "responsibility to call that out, to make sure that the American people understand what is being done in their name by the person who holds the highest position of public trust in this land".

Vermont senator Bernie Sanders tweeted: "We must come together to reject this risky and growing culture of bigotry espoused by Trump and his allies". "He is saying that some people are inherently defective or unsafe".

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway called for unity on Sunday, tweeting, "We need to come together, America". "It solves not a single problem, saves not a single life", she added. As the Sunday exchange with journalists went viral, the presidential candidate - on Twitter and in interviews - repeated his indictments of Trump and his exasperation with those hesitant to link the president to the racism potentially behind the shooting.

Other candidates also sounded similar sentiments to Warren, including Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen.

"Let's be very clear". "And if that were not true, the President would be acting and speaking very, very differently than what he's doing right now". Calling those in Africa shithole nations and saying that he'd like to have more immigration from Nordic countries, the whitest place on planet Earth today. He stokes racism. He incites violence.

"Look, the person that is responsible for the shooting is the shooter", Castro said. "And again, there are still details that we are waiting on, but I'm just following the lead that I've heard from the El Paso Police Department where they say there are strong indications that this shooter wrote that manifesto and this was inspired by his hatred of people here in this community". "Because when I'm elected president, I'm going to do something".
