Several El Paso Shooting Victims Refuse to Meet With President Trump

Several El Paso Shooting Victims Refuse to Meet With President Trump”

"Because the man who carried out another mass shooting 13 hours later in Dayton, Ohio, seems to have been a left-wing radical whose social media posts echoed Democrats" hate-filled attacks on the president and USA immigration officials.

Mielke also said the people Donald Trump met with at the hospital were two victims who had already been discharged that returned to the hospital with their families to meet with the president.

"A rock star?" asked Lemon.

Lawyers for the mother of Patrick Crusius, the accused El Paso shooter, said she had called the police in Allen, Texas weeks before the August 3 attack because she was concerned about his owning an AK-47-type assault rifle. She contacted the police because she anxious whether her 21-year-old son was mature or experienced enough in handling such a weapon to have purchased an "AK"-type firearm".

Trump went to Dayton and El Paso in the wake of two mass shootings that have left both communities reeling and the nation palpably traumatized.

Trump, meanwhile, says he condemns "racism, bigotry and white supremacy".

The back-to-back massacres, which occurred just 13 hours apart, have reopened the national debate over gun safety, with protesters in Dayton to heckling Ohio's Republican governor, Mike DeWine, at a vigil for the shooting victims with chants of: "Do something!"

US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has rejected recalling senators from their recess to discuss gun control after two mass shootings. "Beto had like 400 people in the parking lot".

Pelosi and Schumer spoke on the phone with Trump later on Thursday, and said the president "gave us his assurances that he would review the bipartisan House-passed legislation and understood our interest in moving as quickly as possible to help save lives". "And, by the way, here is a great hero", he said.

Villatoro told CNN he met with Trump because he wanted to "show everyone that we should be united as one", and Garcia said he had no problem with Trump coming to El Paso.

The remaining eight patients being treated at University Medical Center in El Paso, Texas following a deadly mass shooting over the weekend declined to meet with the president during his visit there Wednesday.

He later commented on the issue while speaking to reporters outside the White House.

"The love, the respect for the office of the presidency - I wish you could have been in there to see it", Trump told journalists.

Rep. Veronica Escobar, meanwhile, wrote on Twitter this week that she'd been invited by the White House to join Trump on his El Paso visit but instead requested a phone call in which she could pass along messages from her constituents, including victims.

But in El Paso, where more protests awaited, Raul Melendez, whose father-in-law, David Johnson, was killed in Saturday's shooting, said the most appropriate thing Trump could do was to meet with relatives of the victims.
