Although Beto O’Rourke has told President Trump to keep away from El Paso, Trump made personal visits to the El Paso survivors Wednesday, prompting MSNBC to see what the citizens of the town thought about it.
The news outlet seemed surprised themselves when they reported that the residents were “surprisingly positive” about the president visiting their town post-tragedy.
Take a look at this breaking news that hit Twitter:
Although MSNBC was surprised, the American people didn't seem as much in shock!
It's almost like the mainstream media narrative of Trump being a racist devil isn't working to influence people like they thought it would!

The Blaze has more to say about the MSNBC reporting:
An MSNBC correspondent expressed his bewilderment at the response from El Paso, Texas, resident to a visit from President Donald Trump in the wake of a horrible racially motivated attack.
Jacob Soboroff said that many residents were "surprisingly positive" during the visit from the president on Wednesday.
"Jacob, you've been in El Paso, talking to the community," said MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi. "What's the feeling there about the president's visit?"
"Well, Ali, given the way that the president has talked about Latinos, and Latinos make up the vast majority of the population of the city of El Paso, surprisingly positive is the way that people are responding here, in the wake of the shooting," Soboroff responded.
"I see calls for unity and a great spirit of togetherness," he added.
