President Trump Visits Affected Shooting Areas in Dayton and El Paso”

U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump disembark from Air Force One upon arrival at El Paso International Airport in El Paso, Texas, August 7, 2019, as he travels to Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas, following last weekends mass shootings.

As happened earlier Wednesday in Dayton, Trump was greeted by protesters demanding gun-control reform and an end to caustic rhetoric - including some from the president - that is believed to be contributing to a culture of violence in America.

In a visit earlier in the day to Dayton, Ohio, that was mostly out of public view, Mr Trump met shooting victims at Miami Valley Hospital, where the wounded were treated after nine people and the suspect were killed in a rampage early last Sunday. During Trump's first stop in OH, he met with medical workers at Miami Valley Hospital, posing for a group photo and grinning with two thumbs up.

"A lot of people (who) own businesses in that district are not interested in the President being there", she said.

Ahead of the USA president's arrival in El Paso, DW's Alexandra von Nahmen reports that many residents say Trump is "not welcome" in their city. "Tremendous enthusiasm & even Love".

"I know that it's hard that this terrorist wrote the same words that he was coming to El Paso to kill Hispanics because of the 'invasion of Hispanics, '" Garcia shouted.

Material from Reuters and The Associated Press was used in compiling this report.

Mr Trump told them he was "with them", she said.

In his State of the Union speech earlier this year, Trump called El Paso "one of our nation's most unsafe cities", something local press took severe issue with, as he appeared to link crime in the city predominantly to Latinos and immigrants.

Some Democrats and residents of El Paso concurred with OH criticism of Mr Trump's inflammatory rhetoric, who argue that it has fostered the kind of anti-immigrant hatred that could have contributed to the weekend's attack.

"I think he heard me", she said.

An open letter to Trump on Wednesday the editor of the El Paso Times, Tim Archuleta, described the border city as having "a deep tradition of racial harmony" whose people came together after the tragedy. Patrick Crusius, 21, is charged with the shootings and faces a potential death penalty.

He could also face protests on his first stop in Dayton.

"The president can have a country divided by hate and racism or embrace every human being with the dignity they deserve", she told CNN.

Emotions are still raw in both cities in the aftermath of the weekend shootings. "We are a mixing pot that makes our country great, and we welcome everyone". "He's going to create chaos around here", said Fernando Montoya, 45, who joined the protesters at a park in El Paso.

"My critics are political people", Trump told reporters. "Somebody has been saying those words and those words ... were coming from the White House and the president of the United States".

Trump headed to University Medical Center of El Paso to meet with more than two dozen people injured in the gun violence and with members of law enforcement. "So in that capacity, I will fulfill my obligations as mayor of El Paso to meet with the president and discuss whatever our needs are in this community".
