The El Paso Mayor had the perfect response when asked about President Donald Trump’s ‘racism’ and white nationalism.
El Paso Mayor Dee Margo is concentrating on dealing with the circumstances and helping the victims. Unlike CNN, who are just pushing the Democratic narrative.
“I’m focusing on the El Pasoans and the 20 deaths, their families and what it means to this community and how we can come together and not be victimized by this.”
After former Congressman Beto O’Rourke (D) appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and cited President Donald Trump’s alleged racism as the reason behind the “violence in America,” host Jake Tapper pressed El Paso Mayor Dee Margo on the issue.
Despite Tapper’s repeated attempts to get Margo to take a stance on Trump’s alleged racism, the Mayor shut him down.
“Former Congressman from El Paso, Beto O’Rourke, told me earlier in the show that, in his view, the president’s anti-immigrant rhetoric is making things worse and creating an atmosphere of violence. Do you agree? Do you have any concerns about the things President Trump says about immigrants?” Tapper asked.
“Jake, I’m not qualified to make a comment on that. I’m not a talking head. I’m focusing on the El Pasoans and the 20 deaths, their families and what it means to this community and how we can come together and not be victimized by this,” Margo responded. More
What ‘anti-immigrant’ sentiment? Do they think Americans don’t know the difference between an illegal alien and legal immigrant‽
The mayor didn’t take the bait. Kudos to him, because he actually gets it. Focus on helping and leading your community and not trying to score political points from a tragedy. Too much of the MSM are always trying to exploit vulnerable citizens and it’s disgusting.
It’s so ironic when people condemn rhetoric with hateful rhetoric… with no apparent recognition that words from “their side” may be part of the mental health problem.
It’s so sad that Jake can’t see that everyone is appalled by this violence instead of stoking more hate

Remember when reporters “Reported” the news, @jaketapper instead of trying to “Manufacture” the news?
