Terrible shootings in ElPaso, Texas. Reports are very bad, many killed. Working with State and Local authorities, and Law Enforcement. Spoke to Governor to pledge total support of Federal Government. God be with you all!
Since then Trump has tweeted 49 more times over the course of 5 days. A handful of the tweets are a vague general condolence over the shooting in El Paso and the one in Dayton, one of them calls for capital punishment for the killers, and a couple of them tout his trip to those two cities today.
Most of Trump's tweets in this series are not about these shootings at all, and none of them are about gun control, and none of them are about the white supremacy issue.
Shortly after he first tweeted about the El Paso shooting, Trump's very next tweet was a photo of him in the oval office with a MMA fighter and a caption of Trump wishing the fighter luck in his bout that night.
There are tweets about China, tweets of people praising Trump, tweets about unemployment, tweets about how Trump believes that Google wants to steal the election from him, tweets about South Korea, and a couple about the New York Times changing one of it's headlines. More fake news schtick from Trump.
There is a tweet about Beto O'Rourke's name and poll rankings.
And there is a tweet this morning claiming that the Dayton shooter was a member of Antifa.
Donald J. Trump
“Meanwhile, the Dayton, Ohio, shooter had a history of supporting political figures like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and ANTIFA.”
I hope other news outlets will report this as opposed to Fake News. Thank you!
What there isn't a shred of in all this tweeting, is the slightest acknowledgement that Patrick Crusius drove 900 miles across Texas to kill Mexicans.
We KNOW what Crusius motives were, but Trump does not even come close to showing that he understands that.
Nothing about guns either.
