Beto blames ‘racist’ Trump for El Paso shooting

Yesterday was a dark day for America. Not one, but two mass shootings happened within hours of each other, tragically taking the lives of at least 30 people. The first shooting happened in El Paso, TX near a shopping center .

The shooter, which we won’t name, was only twenty-one. He’s in police custody and according to multiple reports, circulated a white nationalist manifesto online before carrying out the horrendous act. Police are still working to identify if that document was created and posted by the shooter.

Beto O’Rourke, who is running for president and from Texas, is blaming President Trump for the shooting, calling him a racist and saying his comments “stoke racism in this country.”

O’Rourke continued, “It does not just offend our sensibilities; it fundamentally changes the character of this country and it leads to violence.”

Watch the interview clip below.

The President condemned the shootings on Twitter, writing that the gunman was a coward.
