'Democrats Blame ‘White Nationalist' Trump for Shootings in Texas, Ohio
[Breitbart] Democrats are blaming President Donald Trump for the shootings in El Paso on Saturday and another in Dayton, Ohio overnight that killed 29 people.
Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown attacked his Republican colleagues for failing to defy the gun lobby and pass any kind of gun control legislation.Democrat and presidential candidate Julian Castro "pointed to a ’toxic brew’ of white nationalism and says Trump needs to do more to "unite Americans instead of fanning the flames of bigotry."
He also called for President Donald Trump to tone down his "divisive racist rhetoric" but stopped short of conceding that Trump’s language has encouraged white supremacist terrorism.
NBC reported Democrat presidential candidate and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) "argued Sunday the President Trump’s rhetoric on immigration has helped to stoke racial resentment and a climate of hate in light of Saturday’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas."
"We have a president of the United States who is particularly responsible," Booker said in an interview with Meet the Press.
"In my faith, you have this idea that you reap what you sow, and he is sowing seeds of hatred in this country, this harvest of hate violence that we are seeing right now lies at his feet," Booker said. "There is a complicity in the president’s hatred that undermines the goodness and decency of Americans."
