As Democrats blame shootings on Trump’s rhetoric, White House pushes back


You see a president who,
in his first speech as a candidate for
the highest office in the land, described Mexican immigrants
as as rapists and criminals, has been warning
about the threats of caravans and asylum seekers
who he’s described as animals and an infestation. Despite the fact that
immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than do those who are born
in this country. Despite the fact that we are now in one of the safest cities
in the United States of America, safe not despite but because
it is a city of immigrants. The President’s language,
his rhetoric has produced the kinds of hate crimes
that we saw in El Paso yesterday but we’ve been seeing
across this country. They’ve been on the rise
for each one of the last three years. -Well, every time this happens,
we say, “Never again.” We say we’re gonna do something. We say it’s gonna change. And it hasn’t. I’ve been thinking a lot about
the fact that this same debate and this same cycle has been
going on my entire adult life. And I’m wondering
what it will take to get the sense of urgency, to get Washington
to actually respond. Especially when Americans,
frankly in both parties, want to see changes, at least some basic common-sense
measures on gun safety. -Mick, why has the President downplayed the threat
of white nationalism? -I don’t think he has. Look at what he said yesterday. He condemned this without
any reservation whatsoever, so I don’t think that’s fair. -Well, wait a minute.
Can I read the President’s word? Because back in March,
he was asked directly, “Do you see today
white nationalism as a rising threat
around the world?” And his answer, “I don’t really. I think it’s a small group
of people that have
a very, very serious problem.” He downplayed the threat
of white nationalism. -There is one person that is
responsible directly for that shooting in El Paso,
and that’s the shooter. At the same time,
as our national leader, you have a role
to play in either fanning the flames of division or trying to bring Americans of
different backgrounds together. Most presidents have chosen to
try and bring people together. This president very early
on made a clear choice to divide people
for his own political benefit. -One of your 2020 rivals,
Congressman Beto O’Rourke, told me this morning
that he believes President Trump is a white supremacist
or a white nationalist. Do you agree?
-I do. Look, and it gives me
no pleasure to say this, but I think all of the evidence
out there suggests that we have a president
who is a racist, who is a xenophobe, who appeals and is trying
to appeal to white nationalism. And, you know, it breaks
my heart to have to say that this is the person we have who is president
of the United States.

  1. I have a liberal woman friend who I found weeping about the mass shootings.
    “I see you feel bad about the loss of lives of innocent people,” i said.
    She stared at me. “It’s not the loss of lives I’m upset about.”
    “Then what are you crying about?”
    More tears began running down her cheeks. “How come none of these shooters are EVER NRA members?” She cried out.

  2. Beto and his INCORRECT bullsh*t talking points. Pretty pathetic for someone that wants to be President to be that misinformed and to keep repeating that misinformation over and over. Just because you want it to true so badly doesn't make it reality you moron.

  3. A direct one to one relationship. This president, the Republican party and the lunatic supporters of this moron are directly at fault.

  4. Red flag alert ! Screw these crazy evil killer's rights, and arrest them at the 1st sign when they know they are a nut job. Also more properly trained responsible gun owners should be armed. There is no way to stop a killer from killing, so we should have the right, and a chance to take them out on scene ! The pathetic left blames Trump and everyone else for everything, but themselves. They and the BS media spew hate all day long 24 /7 …… Take a look in the mirror !

  5. WATCH Youtube : "Trump comments perceived by some as encouraging violence."

    Trump praised a congressman’s past assault on a reporter, making it the latest example where he appears to encourage or support violence.

    In the latest instance, Trump referenced Rep. Greg Gianforte’s 2017 attack on a reporter by saying that “any guy who can do a body slam, he is my type!”

    "If you see a protester , knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously, OK? Just knock the hell …I promise you I will pay for the legal fees. I promise, I promise," he said on Feb. 1, 2016.

    At a Las Vegas rally later that month, he said security guards were too gentle with a protester. Trump said. "I'd like to punch him in the face, I'll tell you."

    Donald Trump claimed he could stand " in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose a voter."

  6. I don't suppose the Pulse shooting (2016 – Omar Mateen), or the Ft. Hood massacre (2009 – Nidal Malik Hasan) had anything to do with Barack Obama? Hmmmm… I wonder what the difference is. BTW…. how come we keep hearing about the 14 Mexicans killed or wounded in El Paso? The other 32 killed or wounded don't fit the narrative the media is working on? If it was 14 Norwegians being shot this would not be upgraded to a "hate crime."

  7. Mass shootings occurred before Trump mass shootings are probably – and sadly – going to occur after Trump. Trying to score political points off mass shootings is disgusting.

  8. Democrats are so far out there, they have lost all stability, reality in the real world. They have lost the trust of the ever shrinking group of those with a little sanity left within their party with their 'go blaming stance' on every political topic possible. President Trump does not need to lift a finger to win the next Presidency…………………. as the Democrats are pushing him to that Oval Office with their mad antics!

  9. Beto O'Rourke, why don't you and the rest of the libertard candidates on the Democratic side just go sit back and rot in hell! Everything that comes out of your mouth is supposed to be caused by Trump. All of this b***** was happening when that piece of s*** Muslim was in office for 8 years too. But you guys don't want to talk about that, all you want to do is go down there and shoot your mouth off and try and get yourself some air time. Well you and the rest of the democratic Dumbo's go right ahead and do that because you're just making it a whole lot easier for Trump to get re-elected in 2020 and then you stupid bastards can sit around for four more years trying to figure out what kind of b***** you're going to come up with

  10. Was Peter butt-gags boyfriend sitting underneath him while he was giving his interview?:-) fruit cup doesn't care about anything but getting back to South Bend to lick his boyfriend's dick!

  11. Democrats have angered many Americans, with their Anti-American, pro-illegal, open border nonsense that is destroying America. Pelosi and her vile colleagues are ground zero for hate speech in America with their rabid, frothing at the mouth, never ending hate speech against President Trump.

  12. They can blame Trump all they want everyone of these Mothrrfuckers have Skeletons in THEIR closets ! Especially the GayBoy Buttegeig the Tin soldier ! With the Desk job Military background ? When you use the word Racist when speaking about Trump , it's them who are the Racists ! If these Illegals were intelligent the DemoRats wouldn't care about them ! Beto s an Asshoe who NOBODY wants he's USELESS ! That's why he lost ! DemoRats are Corrupt lying Cocksuckers ! None of these Candidates can't and Don't offer anything to this Country ! Why ? Because Trump is taking care of everything ! They have Nothing to Offer !

  13. Cleary what trump ment was that many coming from mexico are gangmembers and criminals and aldo why are these left wingers not talking about other shootings done by left wingers ??? Now i am not a fan of Trump but this goes to far. He never downplayed white nationalism. On the other hand the Squad never says anything about groups like blm or antifa

  14. These democrats are scary right now. using this tragedy to push their campaign against trump. they are so disrespectful and show little to no class these days. the position of president should always be respected, that is our executive branch

  15. How many people knew that the mass shooter in Ohio was a Elizabeth Warren supporter ? So I guess that makes Elizabeth a Nazi, white Supremicist ?

  16. Amazed they didn't have Sanders on first, saying " It's all the fauwlt of Donald Twump…." More nonsense from the 2020 Democrat clowns. They will only get worse.

  19. So glad Trump isn't blaming Elizabeth Warren(whom Betts supported) for the Dayton shooting and all the Dems Antifa SS guards violence that will be happening at the future Trump rallys. Trump is the best POTUS in history, man has class.

  20. I hear all of the filth that spews out of your mouth and all the other political talking heads, I have guns, yet I’ve never shot anyone. Why was this Trumps fault?

  21. God don't let rump go to elpaso. He's going to exploit it and call upon his evil master. No good can come of it

  22. The WH Mafia Nazi and his goons are a disgrace. Stop calling him president, please. Just speak out, speak the truth, tell the world what

  28. Beto you are as dumb as the come. BETO (Pepto) Bismol provides relief from nausea, diarrhea and upset stomach due to overindulgence of the BS, rhetoric, lies, fake stories, investigation after investigations that have gone no where except for us taxpayers to pay for your ENVY and GREED!. The congress has allowed their wrecked house and none governing, except to a offend AMERICANS by this wave of illiterate LEFTIST LIBERALS, from THE COGRESSIONAL FLOOR everyday attacking TRUMP. What have each of you congressional elected politicians done for your communities and voters that elected you… THINK ABOUT IT……. OH, NOTHING

  29. Is Beto on an acid trip ??? He is not in touch with reality …The President called Gang Members of that gang that cuts peoples hearts out Animals … Beto , are you taking money from the cartels and /or soros and the open border criminals???

  30. BETO….your billionaire father in law, Bill Sanders, owns a ranch in NM next to Epstein's ranch……your father in law is also good friends with Bill Richardson as is Epstein……hmmm, MORE going on here than meets the eye…….

  31. Sanders is an opportunist fool …He get dumber by the day with his B.S. calling things free…. Any fool knows someone has to pay ….

  32. Stop the finger pointing – Find solutions. Mass shooters are almost always men, even though women can pull a trigger and have equal access to guns. These tired narratives are neither the fix nor the facts. The citizens deserve better.

  33. You can't get lower morally than "Beto" and Booker. If you think they believe in what they are saying, you are being played.

  34. I don't understand these democrat politicians – always blaming the President for every tragedy in the land! They can't see that they contributed greatly to the disorder in the land – they have been advocating violence and hatred, an example would be Maxine Watters who has been telling his followers to harass Pres. Trump supporters wherever they are! And the Antifa members who are domestic terrorists! I put the blame to these politicians who think they are better than anybody else! Evil minded people are all over the country! Blame them for doing such horrible crimes toward their fellow Americans!!!!!

  35. 🤡 CLOWNS 🤡 CLOWNS. DO ALL THESE DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES HAVE TO GO TO CLOWN SCHOOL AS A REQUIREMENT
    BEFORE THEY CAN RUN FOR PRESIDENT.
    SOMETHING TO PONDER , **** WHEN THE LIBERALS INSISTED GOD BE TAKEN OUT OF THE SCHOOLS , COMMUNITY, FAMILY AND YES OUT OF MARRIAGE “ SHACKING UP “. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET * PEOPLE WHO FEAR NOT GOD FOR THEIR BEHAVIOR, AND IF YOU HAVE NO FEAR OF YOUR CONSEQUENCES TO GOD YOU SURE WONT FEAR ANYTHING OR ANYBODY ELSE.
    “ NO GOD = A SOCIETY OF TOTAL BREAKDOWN “

  36. This is pathetic and a typical move by someone who doesn’t have a leg to stand on in terms of the American public. Don’t blame the President for the actions of someone else. It’s just a dumb idea!

  37. The only dividing my country are the Dems I am not a Republican I am An American who cares

  38. Obama's response to mass shootings under his watch was to try (Desperately) to enact reasonable gun reform which was BLOCKED at every turn by Moscow Mitch and the Rethugs.

  39. Many Americans feel the congress is not protecting them. We must all agree the illegals that come here for free everything are stealing from the USA tax payers and robbing their homes figuratively and literally. Their retirement, their social security, their future they paid too much into this. The USA citizen needs there money for their family health care etc. Not higher taxes taken from their hard earned paychecks. Congress democrats can not be giving all their money away. This is the crux of the problem the democrats Not Trump whose trying to fix all this. The rhetoric of the democrats, Ex. Beto is damaging and very dangerious.
    Democrats are the Rhetoric champs.

  40. There's a real problem with young men killing innocent strangers in these terrorist attacks yet the politicians and many in the media use these tragedies to score political points and call for action and changes that will do nothing to answer the real question which is why has this become so common. I personally think many young men feel alone and useless, they are resentful, angry and frustrated with the world. Young men are constantly being told that they are the problem, toxic masculinity, white privilege, etc etc. They lack the responsibilities, support and clear purpose of previous generations, they no longer have permanent employment or the expectation of it, no dependent family relying on them to provide or a community that needs and values them. Many young men have lost their way and they aren't getting a lot of help. I don't know what the answer is but I wish those in power were asking the right questions rather than playing the blame game and looking to gain advantage from the tragedy. It's very sad n dangerous.

  41. So funny dems have nothing to go against Trump with so they name call like 6 graders. Funny thing is they are exactly what they accuse Trump of. Dems really think Americans are dumb. Trump in a landslide 2020.

  42. This is very misleading News, and Democrats are creating a lot of unnecessary hate in people's hearts. All because you want to be in office, so you talk it up and put the blame on Trump, over and over again with lies. Y'all act like a bunch kids fighting over candy. Why can't you help the President we have now, instead of being destructive. (God Help us)

  43. We need to hold Elizabeth warren accountable to. Bernie needs held accountable for calling Baltimore a third world nation. Maybe if all politicians were held accountable things would work.

  44. Let's talk about "Televised-Hatred".

  45. The missing links are running amok in the 21st century and the Democrats pander to these creatures. Governments must stop feeding and housing these creatures and permit them to become extinct like evolution intended.

  46. The democrats are shameless power grabbers…they hate everybody..they can't even get along with themselves…They make me sick! Now I need to go drop a beto!

  49. "All of the evidence out there suggests that we have a president who is a racist, xenophobe, and is trying to appeal to white nationalism."
    How interesting that they never get around to providing all this alleged evidence. After all, what could be more concrete than hearing it right from the horse's mouth. Why isn't this evidence being plastered on every liberal station, 24/7? Show us this footage of Trump describing immigrants as rapists and criminals, and asylum-seekers as animals. WHERE IS IT????

  50. Beta Male O'rourke's political career is done. Soon he'll go back to his true calling, which is a son in law to a multimillionaire

  51. WTF to the dems who started the hatred we now are seeing unfold. Obama will be the last dem pres I will EVER VOTE FOR !

  52. You know what I'm done. It's not even close to trump's responsibility because of the shooting in el paso. It was the shooter. How is it his fault when trump didn't even send soldiers to start a shooting? Jericho Green was right. And also trump didn't even think about it but was pushed too far.

  53. Total idiots. Racism was totally dead before CNN and all these liberal outlets starting screaming it. It is a very very small percentage.

  54. Does anyone listen to these democrats anymore? They are the problem in this country, and our country won't heal until these kind of people are out of office. False narratives much!

  55. Beto acts like hes overdosing. I was driving down street saw guy on sidewalk talking to himself flaring his arms all over. He was skinny, dirty shirt, tore up jeans unshaven, dirty. Throwing his arms all over, Reminded me of Beto O'Rourke. This guy was a know drug addict found out later.
    Beto is against wall Trump is for wall.
    The wall would impede cocaine flow into USA. Makes you wonder. Not accusing not alleging just saying makes you wonder.

  56. You go president TRUMP we love you.
    Castro and the democrats socialist communist party LIBERAL'S could never do as great of a job as president TRUMP, democrats have nothing to run on. They have done nothing and should pay the American people back for waisting tax payers money. (Bastards)

  57. Okay BETA O'Rourke, that's horse shirt numbers. They are illegal, therefore not on record there for there is no way to to accurately measure how much crime they commit

  58. The Democrats are insane. They are evil money hungry control freak gluttons that are destroying America by dividing the country.

  59. Pete Buttigieg's big time military career. Was just a push button Navy Ensign paper pusher.. LMFAO! This coward does not know shyt about combat or weapons but yet talks big talk and wants to try spread hi lies and disarm America. Not on my watch Vaah J J!

  60. These liberal fools blame their president for dividing the country. As an outsider, I only see the liberal left making the absurd comments and then blaming Trump for exactly what they do. To fan the flames, most of the media do their upmost best to perpetuate this nonsense. It is truly incredible to watch the leftists and media embarrass the USA and demean your country. Do you not think the world is laughing at your blatant and obvious BS? The divisiveness within the US is clearly caused by the so called news media and their propaganda.
