We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!
Trump also failed to mention restricting access to assault rifles or an outright ban on the weapons, used in the two weekend attacks, with which a gunman can rattle off dozens of high-powered rounds per minute. Nobody has said President Obama is out of control.
Obama criticized the position of elected officials and members of the public who maintain that stricter gun laws will not stop a person determined to carry out mass violence, saying common sense measures can help prevent some killings and "save some families from heartbreak". Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform.
After the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, Donald Trump reacted first by tweet and then in a press conference, and both times he failed to condemn the real route of the majority of mass shootings: guns and white supremacist terrorism.
"Hate has no place in our country, and we're going to take care of it", Trump told reporters on Sunday before boarding the Air Force One to return to Washington after spending the weekend at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. The document echoed some of Trump's rhetoric toward immigrants.
He continued, "While the motivations behind these shootings may not yet be fully known, there are indications that the El Paso shooting follows a risky trend: troubled individuals who embrace racist ideologies and see themselves obligated to act violently to preserve white supremacy". El Paso is mainly Latino. His reelection strategy has placed racial animus at the forefront in an effort that his aides say is created to activate his base of conservative voters, an approach not seen by an American president in the modern era. He's been calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals.

Read Barack Obama's full statement of the recent mass shootings below. "He's trafficked in this stuff from the very beginning, and we are reaping right now what he has sown and what his supporters in Congress have sown".
On Twitter Monday, Trump seemed to deflect from scrutiny over the manifesto, which had language mirroring some of his own.
"Fake News has contributed greatly to the anger and rage that has built up over many years", he tweeted. News coverage has got to start being fair, balanced and unbiased, or these awful problems will only get worse!
"We have asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to identify all further resources they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism", Trump said.
"These are really people that are very, very seriously mentally ill", he said, although police have not confirmed such a claim.
