Obama on Mass Shootings: Reject Racism From Leaders

06 Août, 2019, 20:26 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau
  • Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke an El Paso native says that President Donald Trump incites hatred and racism

The president said that gun crime would be reduced if "video games that celebrate violence" were more hard to access, despite the prevalence of mental illness and violent video games in the rest of the world. Including the two latest attacks, 127 people have been killed in the 2019 mass shootings.

Trump has previously tempered his criticism of white supremacy, though he said in scripted remarks to the country on Monday that the U.S. "must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy". When it comes to his hometown, O'Rourke tweeted that the president has "no place" in El Paso following the shooting.

But Trump stopped short of acknowledging his own divisive and racist rhetoric. Legislation to overhaul gun control under Obama failed in 2013 when the Republican-controlled Senate rejected a ban of assault-style weapons and expanding background checks.

He also said the country needs to reform mental health laws to identify disturbed individuals and to work with social media companies to detect potential mass shooters.

Another candidate, Rep. Tim Ryan of OH, on Monday tweeted "Fck me" after Trump occasionally said the OH shooting took place in Toledo instead of Dayton.

The mix-up appeared to strike a nerve with Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, who said said she hadn't gotten confirmation of Trump's visit when asked about it Monday.

"You know the s**t he's been saying".

Margo said he is "already getting the emails and the phone calls" from "people with lots of time on their hands".

"We must make sure those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do those firearms can be taken through rapid due process", he said, an apparent reference to "red flag" laws. I don't have a textbook for dealing with it other than the Bible. The President is coming out. Presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway accused Democrats of politicizing a moment of acute pain while Trump was trying to "bring the country together, heal a nation". I will meet with the President. "I guess for people who have lots of time on their hands, I will deal with the emails and phone calls".

"Words have consequences, and the President has made my community and my people the enemy", Escobar said.

Residents in El Paso told AFP they were fearful of a rise in white nationalism and said Trump was part of the problem. "He has done that through his Twitter".
