Trump Visits Dayton and El Paso Amid Calls for Gun Control

Trump denies provoking racist gun violence as he makes divisive trip to El Paso and Dayton

"Respectfully, the most important thing you can do for these police officers is to take these assault weapons off the streets", Brown says he told the President.

The spokeswoman told reporters during the flight from OH to Texas that the president was not engaged in any conversations about gun control at the hospital, where he also met with first responders.

"That was some crowd", Trump says of his event, claiming there were also "twice as many outside" his arena. There were supporters of the US President, as well.

As Christian Headlines previously reported, the shooter in Dayton, Connor Betts, killed nine people after he opened fire at a nightlife district in Dayton.

"I think the victims and the first responders were grateful that the president of the United States came to Dayton", added Mayor Nan Whaley, who said she was glad Trump had not stopped at the site of the shooting. Stabbing rampage by man leaves 4 dead At least four people were killed and twoA man "full of anger" stabbed, slashed and robbed his way across two Southern California cities in a bloody rampage that killed four people and wounded two others who were apparently targeted at random, authorities said.

"There is a great appetite and I mean a very strong appetite for background checks and I think we can bring up background checks like we've never had before and I think both Republicans and Democrats, they are getting close to doing something on background checks", Trump told reporters at the White House before departing to OH and Texas.

"I think my rhetoric brings people together", he told reporters before departing the White House. "We will be defined by the love, compassion, and strength of El Paso". Trump's campaign still owes the city of El Paso more than $500,000 in police and public safety fees from that visit.

Donald Trump told reporters outside the White House today (August 7) that he was "concerned about the rise of any group of hate", and that he would do "something" about it.


"To me he comes off as fake", she said.

"I don't blame Elizabeth Warren, I don't blame Bernie Sanders, in the case of Ohio-I don't blame anybody", he said.

But in El Paso, where more protests were expected, Raul Melendez, whose father-in-law, David Johnson, was killed in Saturday's shooting, said the most appropriate thing Trump could do was to meet with relatives of the victims. Melendez, an Army veteran and the son of Mexican immigrants, said he holds only the shooter responsible for the attack.

He also said better background checks are needed for people wanting to buy guns. "No one's words would have triggered that". "It was a warm & wonderful visit". The El Paso shooter's writing echoed some of the US president's language, with Mr Trump having frequently used the term "invasion" to describe the situation on the US-Mexico border.

The suspected gunman allegedly wrote an anti-Hispanic rant before the attack.

Mr Trump this year inaccurately described El Paso as one of the most risky cities in the U.S. as he sought to advance his border wall scheme.

US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has rejected recalling senators from their recess to discuss gun control after two mass shootings.

Video footage showed hundreds of people rushing from the area, with some taking cover behind vehicles or pounding on theatre doors seeking a place to hide. The call was taken as "informational" in nature.
