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.
“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.
