This week, Americans across the country have been terrorized after multiple mass shootings claimed the lives of over 30 people. It all started two Sunday’s ago at a Garlic festival in Gilroy, California, then came a massacre at a Walmart near the Mexican border, and just hours later, even more people lost their lives at a bar in Dayton Ohio.
The last two shooters were white supremacists who left writings proclaiming their hatred of dark-skinned people. Those two men alone killed 29 people on Saturday.
Now the president is addressing the nation, and what he said has some people shocked:
Pres. Trump on El Paso shooting: “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America.” https://t.co/aeuGGxYbA8 pic.twitter.com/i1mRPOlYSq

That’s right, he actually named white supremacists, which is a huge step for the president who called nazis ‘fine people’ in 2018 after one of them mowed down a Black Lives Matter activist with his car.
Now, all we need is comprehensive gun control laws and an all-out ban of assault weapons in this country. This is something Trump knows he can’t do because his base are beer-chugging, gun-loving rednecks in the middle of the country.
People responding to ABC’s tweet weren’t too thrilled with the president. Check out the angriest reactions below:
