Obama Calls for More Gun Control After El Paso, Dayton

Trump says ‘our nation must condemn racism bigotry and white supremacy’ after weekend mass shootings

Trump says ‘our nation must condemn racism bigotry and white supremacy’ after weekend mass shootings

El Paso residents have been signing their names to an online letter telling President Donald Trump in no uncertain terms that he is not welcome in their city after their Mayor, Dee Margo, announced that the US leader would likely be visiting on Wednesday in the wake of Saturday's mass shooting.

Mr. Trump, during his first official televised remarks about the shootings on Monday, denounced white supremacy and "racist hatred".

Trump said he wanted legislation providing "strong background checks" for gun users, though he has reneged on previous promises along that line after mass attacks.

Frank Figliuzzi, former assistant Federal Bureau of Investigation director for Counterintelligence, compared the shooting to Islamic radicalisation due to "a growing body of heat-filled extremists who are radicalising online. finding like-minded extremists and then coming together to encourage each other to violence".

Moreover, speaking n the El Paso attack, John Bash, the US Attorney for the Western District of Texas insisted that his department was "treating this as a domestic terror case". The suspect in the El Paso massacre, in which 22 people have died, is believed to have written an online rant saying he was reacting to "the Hispanic invasion of Texas".

The president then tweeted Fox News' Ainsley Earhardt, who said on the air Tuesday: "It's political season and the election is around the corner".

"The governor's trying to make steps that are effective here", Whaley said. "These sinister ideologies must be defeated". "It has no place in our politics and our public life".

The US President is calling for "quick" capital punishment.

Former President Obama speaks to young leaders from across Europe in a town hall on April 6, 2019, in Berlin. We hope you will stop policies that criminalize, demonize, and dehumanize migrants.

Trump pointed to the media. "Fake News has contributed greatly to the anger and rage that has built up over many years", Trump tweeted. "Tying background checks to immigration reform is a transparent play to do nothing", he wrote on Twitter.

But he didn't say how or why he was connecting the unrelated issues.

His latest proposals would mostly leave it to Congress, which is on recess, to sort out solutions.

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey called the president weak and criticized his continuing suggestions that mental illness is to blame in mass shootings, including those in which people of color or various religions were targeted.

Our president has done nothing but attempt to enforce immigration law. He also asked for a reduction in the "glorification" of violence in American culture, including video games, though research does not link their usage to shootings.

Obama's statement, released after Trump's remarks, said no other nation "tolerates the levels of gun violence that we do".

He noted how the Parkland, Fla., school shooter in February 2018 exhibited numerous signs that he would do something destructive but "nobody did anything".
