WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump is calling on the nation to condemn racism and white supremacy.
He did so while addressing the two latest shooting sprees in El Paso Texas and Dayton Ohio over the weekend, leaving 29 people dead. Trump said the shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online, consumed by racist hate.
“In one voice our nation must condemn racism bigotry and white supremacy,” said President Trump. “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul.”
The President’s comments followed tweets he sent earlier Monday, which suggested tying immigration legislation to strengthening background checks on gun owners.
Trump also cites violent video games as a factor in deadly shootings.
