Uncertain welcome awaits Trump in Ohio, Texas after deadly mass shootings

Uncertain welcome awaits Trump in Ohio, Texas after deadly mass shootings”

Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted Ivanka following the tweet. The actual truth is that there was a shooting near a playground in Douglas Park, where seven people were injured, but there were no fatalities.

"As we grieve over the evil mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, let us not overlook that Chicago experienced its deadliest weekend of the year", she tweeted. Still, 1,600 people in Chicago have been shot this year, and police have reported 300 homicides.

She had met Ivanka Trump previously and said she had "reached out" following the tweets without getting a response.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Ivanka Trump's tweet had acquired about 11,500 likes and a pair of, 800 retweets - a indisputable fact that Lightfoot known as "the hazard of anyone with a platform and viewers that point that doesn't know what they're speaking about - and getting the basic details unsuitable that they may simply work out, if that they had the decency to truly attain out to us in the event that they wished to be a constructive and engaged companion".

In an apparent answer to his criticism, Trump said on Twitter late on Tuesday O'Rourke "should respect the victims & law enforcement - & be quiet!" "I'm not going to be distracted by nonsense tweets from individuals who don't know what they're speaking about".

"If the president weighs in, if he shows these Republicans that they can actually have courage, we can get this done", Lightfoot added. Mass shootings, such as the type erroneously described by Ivanka Trump, however, have not yet been included in that class of normalized gun violence. "If they want to help, they should actually call us and ask for specifics", Lightfoot said.

Trump's tweet came after John Bash, the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas announced that his office would be treating the shooting in El Paso as a "domestic terrorist case", noting that the attack appeared to "be created to intimidate a civilian population, to say the least".

"As the leader of our country, I implore the president to set a better, clearer moral tone, because what he's been doing is blowing every racist xenophobic dog whistle, and when you do that, when you blow that kind of dog whistle, animals come out", Lightfoot said on Monday. Last weekend also was not the deadliest weekend of the year in Chicago, according to data from CPD.

Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson also made a statement correcting Trump's tweet.

One listener, Sandy from Houston, called in and said she ran errands with her daughter Monday morning and told her she was nervous to go into a Walmart, where the El Paso shooting took place. "But if he stands back and continues to do what he's been doing and he just tweets and he demonizes and he skims the surface, it matters not". Statistics have shown that happened long before the wall was erected - and that El Paso has never been one of the most risky cities in the country.

Duckworth, a Democrat, said the mayor is "absolutely right" about the president.

Duckworth said Trump could help curb violence by promoting community investments through federal funding and supporting gun control legislation. Lightfoot said she didn't know and didn't especially care.
