Democrats decry Trump on El Paso shooting, OH shooting response

Enlarge this image

US President Donald Trump, who came under public scrutiny for not appearing in public following the two mass shootings that killed 29 people, has said that "hate has no place" in America, citing the alleged "mental problems" of the gunmen who carried out the massacres in Texas and Ohio. But he didn't say how or why he was connecting the issues and did not elaborate on that proposal during his 10-minute address from the Diplomatic Reception Room.

President Donald Trump early Tuesday spoke out on Twitter against former President Barack Obama's statement in the wake of a pair of weekend shootings, after Obama called for Americans to reject the words "coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders" that feeds "fear and hatred and normalizes racist sentiments".

Without naming President Trump or the divisive rhetoric of his successor on immigration and race - which some Democrats have said fans the hatred behind violent acts like Saturday's massacre in El Paso - Obama urged the public to rebuff "leaders" who scapegoat certain groups and employ bigoted language.

The letter also asks that Trump cut his "ties to white supremacists", before naming current Trump adviser Stephen Miller, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Speaking on Sunday, Trump said: "Hate has no place in our country, and we are going to take care of it".

As with a litany of other shooting sites before, stories of the goodness seen in lives cut short juxtaposed with inklings of the demented motives of the shooters, and on-scene heroics with troubling ideologies that may have sparked the bloodshed.

Trump Calls for Linking New Gun Control Legislation to Immigration Reform
Trump, who will make remarks later Monday, tweeted about the weekend shootings in Texas and OH that left dozens of people dead. Leading Democrats were quick to criticise Trump for blaming mental illness and not raising the issue of gun control.

Klay Thompson Has A Strong Message For The Rest Of The NBA
The Warriors acquired D'Angelo Russell in a sign and trade with the Nets and also added Willie Cauley-Stein in free agency. The deal will start in the 2020-21 season and bring the total value of his contract to $118 million.

Trump suggested a bill to expand gun background checks could be combined with his long-sought effort to toughen the nation's immigration system, but gave no rationale for the pairing. Nobody has said President Obama is out of control.

During his White House address, he stuck to a somber tone, but advisers acknowledge that - as it did during following a similar White House address in Charlottesville's aftermath - the call for unity could easily shatter if Trump were to react negatively to cable news coverage or if the markets continued to fall amid escalating trade tensions with China.

As Trump weighs trips to the affected communities - the Federal Aviation Administration advised pilots of a presidential visit Wednesday to El Paso and Dayton, Ohio - local lawmakers signaled opposition to his presence. A racist, anti-Hispanic screed was posted online before the shooting in the mostly Latino city of 700,000 people.

In recent weeks, the president has issued racist tweets about four women of color who serve in Congress, and in rallies has spoken of an "invasion" at the southern border.

Trump added, "It's political season and the election is around the corner". The survey was conducted both before and after a mass shooting at two mosques in New Zealand. He blamed mental illness and video games but made no mention of more limits on the firearms that can be sold. "It's time to put the politics aside and pass universal background checks and an assault weapons ban". But he suggested more gun laws can "can stop some killings" and "save some families from heartbreak".
