Which people would that be?
Before boarding Marine One for President Trump spoke to reporters:
Speaking before departing for El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, the site of another weekend mass shooting, Trump accused his opponents of “looking for political gain” by tying his comments to the shooting in Texas and insisted he would like to “stay out of the political fray” even as he sought to link the Dayton shooter to prominent Democrats.
“I don’t think my rhetoric does at all. I think my rhetoric brings people together. Our country is doing really well,” Trump said at the White House when asked by reporters if his comments contribute to violence.
“I am concerned about the rise of any group of hate. I don’t like it. Any group of hate — whether it’s white supremacy, whether it’s any other kind of supremacy, whether it’s Antifa” — a leftist group, he said. “And I’ll do something about it.”
We’ll see how well his rhetoric brings together the people of Dayton and El Paso today.
