Fake-o, I mean Beto, is blaming President Trump for the recent mass shouting in El Paso, Texas. While the shooting is tragic, there is no one and nothing to blame but the shooter himself.
The 2020 hopeful candidate Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke tweeted out Monday evening, “This president, who helped create the hatred that made Saturday’s tragedy possible, should not come to El Paso. We do not need more division. We need to heal. He has no place here.”

Interesting that he had so much to say about Trump's apparent hatred, considering the president addressed the massacre and called for death penalty for mass shooters, as well as condemned racism, hatred, and bigotry.
The president said, “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America."
He continued, “These barbaric slaughters are an assault upon our communities, an attack upon our nation, and a crime against all of humanity. We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil.”
Conservative Fighters reports:
O’Rourke is the latest Democrat to urge the president to steer clear of El Paso after a gunman shot dead 22 people and injured 53 at a Walmart. The suspect, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, was charged with capital murder, making him eligible for the death penalty. The Justice Department is weighing bringing hate crime charges against Crusius, which also carries the death penalty. Hours later, a gunman killed 9 people, including his sister, after opening fire in a busy bar district in Dayton, Ohio. Police killed gunman 24-year-old Connor Betts within one minute after he began shooting.
O’Rourke on Saturday left to the campaign trail to be in El Paso after the shooting, where he attempted to tie President Trump to the tragedy.
“He is a racist, and he stokes racism in this country. And it does not just offend our sensibilities, it fundamentally changes the character of this country, and it leads to violence,” Beto continued, “And again, there are still details that we are waiting on, but I’m just following the lead that I’ve heard from the El Paso Police Department where they say there are strong indications that this shooter wrote that manifesto and this was inspired by his hatred of people here in this community.”
Trump is not racist though, and continuing to push that hateful rhetoric is only deepening the trouble in our country. Saying that the president of our country is not welcome in an area of tragedy is inciting further division.
After the tragic shootings Trump tweeted, “We cannot let those killed in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, die in vain,. We can never forget them, and those many who came before them."
....this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!

“Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!” he concluded.
