"The Dems new weapon is actually their old weapon, one which they never cease to use when they are down, or run out of facts, RACISM!" he wrote on Twitter. "They are truly disgusting!" But even if Trump's crowd size were bigger, a hospital visit to see the victims of a mass shooting allegedly perpetrated by a white nationalist who echoed Trump's racist anti-immigration rhetoric maybe isn't the right venue in which to bring that up.

After the horrific shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas this weekend, Donald Trump gave a awful speech in which he said one fairly good thing.

Protestors against Trump's visit to El Paso said he was not focusing on the victims and the tragedy.

Democrats have also been blaming Republicans for inciting mass shootings long before Trump.

As the president was travelling to El Paso, Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden also attacked Mr Trump, accusing him of fanning "the flames of white supremacy".

"It's just President Trump lying to the American people again, being inauthentic about what the problem is ... trying to distract, and trying not to take responsibility for what is happening in this nation", she said.

House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) holds a press conference in the Capitol building, Washington, on March 7, 2019. I also don't remember Democrats taking personal responsibility for how their virulent anti-Trump rhetoric contributed to the attempted assassination of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., and other Republican legislators in 2017 by a deranged former Sanders campaign volunteer - even though the shooter called Trump a "traitor" on social media, echoing now-disproved Democratic accusations that Trump colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

"To me he comes off as fake", she said.

"Very SAD to see Ohio Senator Brown, & Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley - LYING & completely mischaracterizing what took place w/ the President's visit to Miami Valley Hospital today", Scavino's tweet reads.

"If you look at Dayton, that was the person that supported, I guess you would say, Bernie Sanders I understood, Antifa, I understand, Elizabeth Warren, I understood".
