Trump Visits El Paso in Light of Walmart Massacre Amid Some Protests

In El Paso on Saturday a gunman opened fire in a crowded Walmart, killing 22 people and injuring 24 more. He visited with patients at the Miami Valley Hospital and met with lawmakers like Sen. Police in riot gear kept watch.

Emotions are still raw in the aftermath of the Sunday shooting rampage that left 10 dead, including the gunman, in the city's OR entertainment district.

Haberman spoke to CNN's John Berman on Thursday to discuss how Trump lashed out at his political enemies while traveling to see the shooting victims in both cities.

Trump then tweeted photos from his so-called "rock star" reception at the OH hospital.

Sherrod Brown and Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, both Democrats, said that they had urged the President to take action on gun control.

Scavino also said Trump was treated like a "rock star" when he met with victims of the mass shooting in Dayton.

"They shouldn't be politicking today", the president told reporters in El Paso during a visit to the city's emergency operations center where he thanked first responders. "Their news conference after I left for El Paso was a fraud", he added, apparently mistaking Brown for another presidential candidate. "The love, respect & enthusiasm were there for all to see".

The Ohio Republican Party doubled down on Trump's seeming mischaracterizations of Whaley and Brown's remarks, as did White House director of social media Dan Scavino. They all blamed him and I want to name and shame them now because he did not respond in kind.

No-deal Brexit during election campaign unconstitutional, warns Jeremy Corbyn
The Institute for Government has claimed that "time is running out" for the Remainers who are attempting to delay Brexit , and that "simply voting against" no-deal can not stop Boris Johnson .

The issue of who had the bigger crowd on that February day has been a frequent matter of concern for Trump. "But let me tell you one more thing: We remember those words already". "He is president of the United States".

Warren, one of Trump's most unabashed critics, recently told the New York Times that Trump is a white supremacist who has "done everything he can to stir up racial conflict and hatred in this country".

The killer deliberately sought out the city, claiming to be stopping an "invasion" of illegal migrants - a term popularized by Trump repeatedly in campaign speeches. Some opponents noted that the president has substantial backing in the town because of his administration's contributions to its economy, especially the job market in the oil and construction industries.

Former vice-president Joe Biden, the front-runner in the 2020 Democratic primary, is slated to speak on white nationalism later Wednesday in Iowa. Much of El Paso identifies as Hispanic and the suspect is thought to be the author of a text posted online which said "this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas".

Not everyone agreed that Trump should stay away.

Hardline defenders of gun ownership have long resisted the portrayal of such tragedies as anything more than random, localized events.

However, the president said he would support legislation to prevent mentally ill people from possessing firearms via background checks. "There is a great appetite, and I mean a very strong appetite, for background checks".

Democrats say Trump's anti-immigrant, racially charged language at rallies and on Twitter has fanned racist, white nationalist sentiments, creating a political climate that is conducive to hate-based violence.
