President Trump To Visit El Paso and Dayton Today

The president will visit both cities in the aftermath of mass shootings that killed 31 people in all.

 

WASHINGTON -- President Trump will visit El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio today where he'll meet with people whose lives were shattered by last weekend's mass shootings. 

Not everyone wants the president's consolation.  Some people in El Paso, including Congresswoman Veronica Escobar, will not meet with Trump. 

Escobar and other critics say Trump's frequent slams of migrants helped create an atmosphere of hate that set the stage for the attack at an El Paso Walmart that left 22 people dead. 

The accused shooter wrote a manifesto expressing concern about what he called a Hispanic invasion.  Trump has often spoken of an invasion of Latin American migrants. 

Meanwhile in Dayton, Mayor Nan Whaley said she'll tell the president his proposals for gun control are inadequate.
