Ever since the horrible, sad mass shootings that took place over the weekend in El Paso and Dayton, Democrats – particularly those vying for the nomination of their party to run against Trump in 2020 – seem more concerned with how the tragedies are framed than actually helping the victims or preventing similar atrocities from happening again.
Simultaneously while ignoring and avoiding the facts at all costs that neither shooter was a Trump supporter, and in fact, both appear to have identified with the left-wing of politics, Democrats like Beto O’Rourke, Obama, and AOC have thrust the blame of the murders onto President Trump.
But now, Beto O’Rourke and Elizabeth Warren have taken the rhetoric another step farther…by outright calling President Trump a “white supremacist!”
Meanwhile, “white supremacist” President Trump was visiting the El Paso survivors, most of them Latino, one-on-one…
Ask yourself: would someone who “hates Mexicans” do that?
Here’s the news of Warren and O’Rourke’s name-blaming that is circulating on Twitter:
Beto O'Rourke was the first to call President Trump a "white supremacist" in an MSNBC interview, which you can watch here:
For her part, Elizabeth Warren first claimed that "Donald Trump is enabling white supremacy" in this tweet:
Then, Warren responded to a question by a New York Times reporter who asked her if she thought Trump was a white supremacist, to which she replied a definitive "Yes."
The New York Times said:
Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said on Wednesday night that she believed President Trump was a white supremacist, broadly accusing him of dividing Americans along racial lines and providing direct and tacit support to those who believe white people are superior to other races.
Asked in a brief interview with The New York Times if she thought Mr. Trump was a white supremacist, Ms. Warren responded without hesitation: “Yes.”
“He has given aid and comfort to white supremacists,” Ms. Warren said during a campaign swing in western Iowa. “He’s done the wink and a nod. He has talked about white supremacists as fine people. He’s done everything he can to stir up racial conflict and hatred in this country.”
Ms. Warren’s comments amounted to one of the starkest condemnations to date from a leading Democratic presidential candidate about Mr. Trump’s language toward minorities and immigrants.
On Beto O'Rourke's similar comments naming Trump a "white supremacist," the Times went on to say:
She spoke hours after former Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas gave the same assessment of Mr. Trump. Asked by MSNBC if Mr. Trump was a white supremacist, Mr. O’Rourke replied, “He is.”
A spotlight on the people reshaping our politics. A conversation with voters across the country. And a guiding hand through the endless news cycle, telling you what you really need to know.
“He’s dehumanized or sought to dehumanize those who do not look like or pray like the majority here in this country,” Mr. O’Rourke said.
The Washington Times also commented:
Democratic presidential hopefuls Elizabeth Warren and Beto O’Rourke on Wednesday both said they believe President Trump is a white supremacist.
“He’s done the wink and a nod. He has talked about white supremacists as fine people. He’s done everything he can to stir up racial conflict and hatred in this country,” she said.
Mr. O’Rourke, a former congressman from Texas, had said earlier in the day on MSNBC that he believes Mr. Trump is a white supremacist.
“He’s also made that very clear,” said Mr. O’Rourke, who has taken a hiatus from the campaign trail to be in El Paso. “He’s dehumanized or sought to dehumanize those who do not look like or pray like the majority here in this country.”
