Trump: My rhetoric brings peo­ple to­gether

Daily Mail - - News - By Emily Kent Smith

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.’
