Trump: My rhetoric brings people together
DONALD Trump claimed his rhetoric ‘ brings people together’ as he made visits to the sites of two shootings which killed 31 people.
The President has been criticised after a Right-wing fanatic killed people in El Paso, Texas, last weekend – claiming he was responding to a ‘Hispanic invasion’.
Many believe the language used by Patrick Crusius, 1, echoed Mr Trump, who has used the term ‘invasion’ to describe Central American migrants. Mr Trump said: ‘My rhetoric brings people together. Any group of hate, I am concerned about, and I’ll do something about it.’
He spoke yesterday as he left the White House on his way to Dayton, Ohio, and the border city of El Paso.
In Dayton, where nine people were killed in 30 seconds, just 13 hours after the first attack, protesters on the streets held signs which read: ‘Trump’s presence only worsens our trauma.’
