Trump smirked at idea of shooting migrants at rally three months before El Paso massacre

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Donald Trump  laughed and joked after a supporter suggested shooting  Mexican  migrants at a rally in May 2019.

The clip of the interaction is once again spreading across social media, as the US reels from the  El Paso  massacre.

“When you have 15,000 people marching up, and you have hundreds and hundreds of [immigrants], and you have two or three border security people that are brave and great – and don’t forget we don’t let them and we can’t let them use weapons,” Mr Trump said, to an audience of thousands in  Florida .

“We can’t. Other countries do, we can’t. I would never do that. But how do you stop these people?”

In response someone from the audience shouted: “Shoot them!”

Mr Trump then appeared to laugh before shaking his head and saying: “That’s only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement.”

The crowd then erupted into laughter and cheers, and Mr Trump added: “Only in the Panhandle!”

At least 20 people were killed when a white male opened fire at a Walmart in the Cielo Vista mall on Saturday.

Later on "This Week," Julian Castro, a former secretary of housing and urban development who is running for the Democratic nomination for president, said said the shooter in El Paso bore responsibility, but added that "most presidents have chosen to try to bring people together."

"Anybody who has the ability to see and hear and understand what the president has been doing since he started his campaign in 2015 knows that division and bigotry and fanning the flames of hate has been his political strategy," Castro said. "He's given license for this toxic brew of white supremacy to fester more and more in this country. And we're seeing the results of that."

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, another 2020 Democratic candidate, issued a statement late Sunday that read, in part:

"Donald Trump said today that 'hate has no place in our country,' but he has openly fostered and preached hate from his place in the White House. I stand by my statement from last week: We can no longer allow a white nationalist in the White House. He has been fanning the flames of racial disparity and hatred for years. America deserves a leader who will work to heal us rather than widen our divides. ... President Trump’s claim that he has 'done a lot' on gun violence prevention is a boldfaced lie."

The facts about Trump cannot be denied. We will instead see the right go to the gaslighting and bamboozling tactic of saying "yes but antifa". etc. 

That is all they have.
