Trump A White Nationalist? Shocker!
Former congressman Beto O’Rourke had delivered forceful criticism of the president when a reporter asked him about Trump’s response to a mass shooting in his hometown of El Paso this weekend.
“We have a president right now who traffics in this hatred, who incites this violence, who calls Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals, calls asylum seekers animals and an infestation,” the Democratic presidential primary candidate told the crowd gathered at a Sunday vigil in the grieving Texas city.
Authorities are still investigating who the believed gunman is. They believe the suspected gunman wrote an anti-immigrant manifesto posted online before killing 22 people.
A reporter hit Beto O’Rourke with a question about whether Trump could do anything to “make this any better,” O’Rourke had strong words to say.
“What do you think?” O’Rourke shot back.
“You know the s— he’s been saying . . . I don’t know, like, members of the press, what the f—?”
