Trump is ‘directly responsible’ for El Paso shooting, says democratic lawmaker


There have been no shortage of attacks against President Trump in recent days, with liberal leftists attempting to somehow tie him to a recent spate of mass shootings.

For many, this has been little more than a game of associations:  When something ostensibly bad happens, the liberal left work to find a way to make it President Trump’s fault.  If the weather is extreme, it’s Trump’s fault for not being a climate change champion.  When a mentally ill racist shoots up a Walmart, it is Trump’s fault for allegedly “stoking the fires” of racism, (despite his constant denouncement of such ideologies wholesale).

Now, in a statement that’s extreme even for her, freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has told the world that she believe the Commander in Chief is “directly responsible” for this tragedy.

The freshman congresswoman has argued that while terrorism by foreign groups like Al Qaeda is defined in federal law, terrorism by domestic groups is not.

“White supremacy is an international terrorist problem,” Ocasio-Cortez said at the vigil, referring to the New Zealand mosque shootings that took 51 lives in March.

She also told the group that anti-immigration rhetoric by President Trump and others “is directly responsible for what happened in El Paso.”

“I’m tired of the questioning if the president is racist. He is,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

The powerfully divisive language comes just a day after 2020 candidate Beto O’Rourke issued a profane rant regarding the President in which he insisted that he also believed Trump to be unequivocally racist.

The President made a powerful statement to the nation in the wake of these shootings, condemning hatred of all kinds, and calling for unity among the American people.
