AND KILLED.>>Announcer: THIS IS AN NBC NEWS SPECIAL REPORT. HERE’S SAVANNAH GUTHRIE.>>WE TAKE YOU NOW TO COMMENTS BY THE PRESIDENT ON THE SHOOTINGS IN EL PASO AND DAYTON, OHIO. >>– WERE KILLED OR WOUNDED IN TWO EVIL ATTACKS. ONE SATURDAY MORNING IN EL PASO, TEXAS, A WICKED MAN WENT TO A WALMART STORE WHERE FAMILIES WERE SHOPPING WITH THEIR LOVED ONES. HE SHOT AND MURDERED 20 PEOPLE AND INJURED 26 OTHERS INCLUDING PRECIOUS LITTLE CHILDREN. THEN IN THE EARLY HOURS OF SUNDAY MORNING, DAYTON, OHIO, ANOTHER TWISTED MONSTER OPENED FIRE ON A CROWDED DOWNTOWN STREET. HE MURDERED NINE PEOPLE INCLUDING HIS OWN SISTER AND INJURED 27 OTHERS. THE FIRST LADY AND I JOIN ALL AMERICANS IN PRAYING AND GRIEVING FOR THE VICTIMS, THEIR FAMILIES, AND THE SURVIVORS. WE WILL STAND BY THEIR SIDE FOREVER. WE WILL NEVER FORGET. 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, THE CRUELTY, THE HATRED, THE MALICE, THE BLOODSHED, AND THE TERROR. OUR HEARTS ARE SHATTERED FOR EVERY FAMILY WHOSE PARENTS, CHILDREN, HUSBANDS AND WIVES WERE RIPPED FROM THEIR ARMS AND THEIR LIVES. AMERICA WEEPS FOR THE FALLEN. WE ARE A LOVING NATION AND OUR CHILDREN ARE ENTITLED TO GROW UP IN A JUST, PEACEFUL, AND LOVING SOCIETY. TOGETHER, WE LOCK ARMS TO SHOULDER THE GRIEF. WE ASK GOD IN HEAVEN TO EASE THE ANGUISH OF THOSE WHO SUFFER AND WE VOW TO ACT WITH URGENT RESOLVE. I WANT TO THANK THE MANY LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL WHO RESPONDED TO THESE ATROCITIES WITH THE EXTRAORDINARY GRACE AND COURAGE OF AMERICAN HEROES. I HAVE SPOKEN WITH TEXAS GOVERNOR GREG ABBOTT AND OHIO GOVERNOR MIKE DEWINE AS WELL AS MAYOR DEMARGO OF EL PASO, TEXAS, AND MAYOR NAN WALEY OF DAYTON, OHIO, TO EXPRESS OUR PROFOUND SADNESS AND UNFAILING SUPPORT. TODAY, WE ALSO SEND THE CONDOLENCES OF OUR NATION TO PRESIDENT OBRADOR OF MEXICO AND ALL THE PEOPLE OF MEXICO FOR THE LOSS OF THEIR CITIZENS IN THE EL PASO SHOOTING. TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE THING. I HAVE ALSO BEEN IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR AND FBI DIRECTOR RAY. FEDERAL AUTHORITIES ARE ON THE GROUND AND I HAVE DIRECTED THEM TO PROVIDE ANY AND ALL ASSISTANCE REQUIRED, WHATEVER IS NEEDED. THE SHOOTER IN EL PASO POSTED A MANIFESTO ONLINE CONSUMED BY RACIST HATE. IN ONE VOICE, OUR NATION MUST CONDEMN RACISM, BIGOTRY AND WHITE SUPREMACY. THESE SINISTER IDEOLOGIES MUST BE DEFEATED. HATE HAS NO PLACE IN AMERICA. HATRED WARPS THE MIND, RAVAGES THE HEART, AND DEVOURS THE SOUL. WE HAVE ASKED THE FBI TO IDENTIFY ALL FURTHER RESOURCES THEY NEED TO INVESTIGATE AND DISRUPT HATE CRIMES AND DOMESTIC TERRORISM, WHATEVER THEY NEED. WE MUST RECOGNIZE THAT THE INTERNET HAS PROVIDED A DANGEROUS AVENUE TO RADICALIZE DISTURBED MIND AND PERFORM DEMENTED ACTS. WE MUST SHINE LIGHT ON THE DARK RECESSES OF THE INTERNET AND STOP MASS MURDERS BEFORE THEY START. THE INTERNET, LIKEWISE, IS USED FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING, ILLEGAL DRUG DISTRIBUTION AND SO MANY OTHER HEINOUS CRIMES. THE PERILS OF THE INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA CANNOT BE IGNORED, AND THEY WILL NOT BE IGNORED. IN THE TWO DECADES SINCE COLUMBINE, OUR NATION HAS WATCHED WITH RISING HORROR AND DREAD AS ONE MASS SHOOTING HAS FOLLOWED ANOTHER OVER AND OVER AGAIN, DECADE AFTER DECADE. WE CANNOT ALLOW OURSELVES TO FEEL POWERLESS. WE CAN AND WILL STOP THIS EVIL CONTAGION. IN THAT TASK, WE MUST HONOR THE SACRED MEMORY OF THOSE WE HAVE LOST BY ACTING AS ONE PEOPLE. OPEN WOUNDS CANNOT HEAL IF WE ARE DIVIDED. WE MUST SEEK REAL BIPARTISAN SOLUTIONS. WE HAVE TO DO THAT IN A BIPARTISAN MANNER. THAT WILL TRULY MAKE AMERICA SAFER AND BETTER FOR ALL. FIRST WE MUST DO A BETTER JOB OF IDENTIFYING AND ACTING ON EARLY WARNING SIGNS. I AM DIRECTING THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE TO WORK IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL AGENCIES AS WELL SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES TO DEVELOP TOOLS TO DETECT MASS SHOOTERS BEFORE THEY STRIKE. AS AN EXAMPLE THE MONSTER IN THE PARKLAND HIGH SCHOOL IN FLORIDA HAD MANY RED FLAGS AGAINST HIM AND YET NOBODY TOOK DECISIVE ACTION. NOBODY DID ANYTHING. WHY NOT? SECOND, WE MUST STOP THE GLORIFICATION OF VIOLENCE IN OUR SOCIETY. THIS INCLUDES THE GRUESOME AND GRISLY VIDEO GAMES THAT ARE NOW COMMONPLACE. IT IS TOO EASY TODAY FOR TROUBLED YOUTH TO SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH A CULTURE THAT CELEBRATES VIOLENCE. WE MUST STOP OR SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE THIS, AND IT HAS TO BEGIN IMMEDIATELY. CULTURAL CHANGE IS HARD. BUT EACH OF US CAN CHOOSE TO BUILD A CULTURE THAT CELEBRATES THE INHERENT WORTH AND DIGNITY OF EVERY HUMAN LIFE. THAT’S WHAT WE HAVE TO DO. THIRD, WE MUST REFORM OUR MENTAL HEALTH LAWS TO BETTER IDENTIFY MENTALLY DISTURBED INDIVIDUALS WHO MAY COMMIT ACTS OF VIOLENCE AND MAKE SURE THOSE PEOPLE NOT ONLY GET TREATMENT BUT WHEN NECESSARY INVOLUNTARY CONFINEMENT. MENTAL ILLNESS AND HATRED PULLS THE TRIGGER, NOT THE GUN. FOURTH, WE MUST MAKE SURE THAT THOSE JUDGED TO POSE A GRAVE RISK TO PUBLIC SAFETY DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO FIREARMS AND THAT IF THEY DO, THOSE FIREARMS CAN BE TAKEN THROUGH RAPID DUE PROCESS. THAT’S WHY I HAVE CALLED FOR RED FLAG LAWS ALSO KNOWN AS EXTREME RISK PROTECTION ORDERS. TODAY, I’M ALSO DIRECTING THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE TO PROPOSE LEGISLATION ENSURING THAT THOSE WHO COMMIT HATE CRIMES AND MASS MURDERS FACE THE DEATH PENALTY AND THAT THIS CAPITAL PUNISHMENT BE DELIVERED QUICKLY, DECISIVELY, AND WITHOUT YEARS OF NEEDLESS DELAY. THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE AREAS OF COOPERATION THAT WE CAN PURSUE. I AM OPEN AND READY TO LISTEN AND DISCUSS ALL IDEAS THAT WILL ACTUALLY WORK AND MAKE A VERY BIG DIFFERENCE. REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS HAVE PROVEN THAT WE CAN JOIN TOGETHER IN A BIPARTISAN FASHION TO ADDRESS THIS PLAGUE. LAST YEAR, WE ENACTED THE STOP SCHOOL VIOLENCE INTO LAW PROVIDING GRANTS TO IMPROVE SCHOOL SAFETY AND STRENGTHENING CRITICAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR FIREARM PURCHASES. AT MY DIRECTION, THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE BANNED BUMP STOCKS. LAST YEAR WE PROSECUTED A RECORD NUMBER OF FIREARMS OFFENSES. BUT THERE IS SO MUCH MORE THAT WE HAVE TO DO. NOW IS THE TIME TO SET DESTRUCTIVE PARTISANSHIP ASIDE — SO DESTRUCTIVE — AND FIND THE COURAGE TO ANSWER HATRED WITH UNITY, DEVOTION, AND LOVE. OUR FUTURE IS IN OUR CONTROL. AMERICA WILL RISE TO THE CHALLENGE. WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE AND WE ALWAYS WILL WIN. THE CHOICE IS OURS AND OURS ALONE. IT IS NOT UP TO MENTALLY ILL MONSTERS. IT IS UP TO US. IF WE ARE ABLE TO PASS GREAT LEGISLATION AFTER ALL OF THESE YEARS, WE WILL ENSURE THAT THOSE WHO WERE ATTACKED WILL NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN. MAY GOD BLESS THE MEMORY OF THOSE WHO PERISHED IN TOLEDO. AND MAY GOD PROTECT THEM. MAY GOD PROTECT ALL OF THOSE FROM TEXAS TO OHIO. MAY GOD BLESS THE VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES. MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU.>>>PRESIDENT TRUMP SPEAKING FOR ABOUT NINE MINUTES ON THE PAIR OF SHOOTINGS THAT TOOK PLACE OVER THE WEEKEND IN EL PASO, TEXAS, AND DAYTON, OHIO, CALLING THEM A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY, SAYING AMERICANS WERE OUTRAGED AND SICKENED BY IT. CALLED IT BAR BARIC SLAUGHTER OF INNOCENT LIVES AND TALKED ABOUT STEPS HE BELIEVES SHOULD HAPPEN WITH SOME RECH REFERENCES TO PARTICULAR LEGISLATION ON THE ISSUE OF GUNS WHICH IS, OF COURSE, SOMETHING A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE WAITING TO HEAR. WHAT DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE STATEMENTS?>>Reporter: IT WAS NOTABLE HE DID CALL FOR FOUR STEPS INCLUDING LEGISLATION ESSENTIALLY DEALING WITH RED FLAG LAWS. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? THIS MEANS THAT AUTHORITIES OR FAMILY MEMBERS CAN PETITION TO HAVE WEAPONS TAKEN AWAY FROM AN INDIVIDUAL WHO THEY DEEM TO BE DANGEROUS TO THEMSELVES OR TO THE COMMUNITY. OF COURSE, DEMOCRATS WILL CALL FOR EXPANDED BACKGROUND CHECKS IN ADDITION TO THAT. THEY WANT THE SENATE TO COME BACK INTO SESSION TO DEAL WITH THIS. NO INDICATION THAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN.>>MUCH MORE TO DISCUSS, OF COURSE, ON THIS ISSUE. WE’LL HAVE A LOT MORE ON NBC NEWS.COM AND MSNBC. LESTER HOLT WITH A FULL WRAP-UP ON NIGHTLY NEWS.

  • THIS RACIST FAKE PRESIDENT HAS A MENTAL ISSUE HIMSELF AND HIS A SOCIOPATH !
    AMERICA FREE OF TRUMP IS THE BEGINNING OF THE HEALING !

  • !!!!DEGUSTING S.O.B SO CALLED INLEGITM PRESIDENT LIEING THRU HE'S PIGS FILTHY MOUTH .BUT INSIDE HE'S DESGUSTING MIND HE THINGING THIS IS THE AMERICA I PRESONALLY WANT TO STAY THIS IS MY PERFECT AMERICA IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT YOU CAN GO THE STORES ARE OPENED

  • My ex roommate and current best friend had two VERY dear friends lost in that shooting. One of them was Abigail, who was outside trying to raise funds for those in need, another was a 19 year old male kicked from his house at a young age for being homosexual. Kicked out by his own mother. He didn't have much, he was finally able to afford a pair of pants, as he was trying them on he was brutally murdered. My friend said the male was optimistic like myself, didnt have a lot, but still stayed positive. I had to get out of work early to console him. Took 3 hours but he's finally feeling a bit better. At one point he was unresponsive and shaking profusely, it terrified me. That's how much in shock he was… God bless those poor lost souls. This is too much to bare, when will it end!

  • Everything he said about the internet, social media, etc. sounds like they have plans on restricting and taking away more of people's rights and privacy. Identify and act on early warning signs? I wonder if they still plan on circumventing due process? Video games, wtf? Are the going to use people's history of entertainment preferences as evidence or grounds for investigation?

    Banning bumpstocks? Does he want a cookie? Bumpstocks don't make it possible to fire at the same rate as a full auto. The cyclic rate of a bumpfired weapon is about 500 rds/min. This is a cyclic rate, with no regard to reloading and the physical and mechanical limitations of the gun and user. It is not possible to practically shoot a gun at this rate, and the practical rate of fire is much lower. This is why the Vegas shooter fired 1100+ rounds over several minutes. If the rate of fire suggested here was possible, the round count would have been in the several thousands.
    Bumpstocks don't make bump firing possible. It's completely possible to bump fire a gun with zero modifications. Neither full auto fire, nor bump fire make a shooter more effective or deadlier. Especially at the range of the shooter in Vegas. Full auto fire is only effective for cover fire and suppressive fire. Even then bump stocks delay the first shot which is a disadvantage. Full auto fire at even moderate range makes gun fire less accurate, more unstable and less effective. You have to pull the gun away from yourself to use a bumpstock. Inaccuracies and instabilities, like those that occur during full auto fire, are severely compounded by bumpstocks.
    If the Vegas shooting was perpetrated with acurate aimed gun fire the toll could have been much greater. Things in the real world don't work like they do in the movies or video games. Bumpstocks are basically "range toys" they are less effective in self defense, combat, and competition. That's why they have never been adopted by any police or military service. Banning them will save zero lives and do nothing but further undermine the 2nd Amendment.

  • Raymond Barrett says:

    Am I totally paranoid, or is this a rough outline of what he said? (With my commentary added.)

    – The federal government will be actively working with social media companies to monitor your activities, watching for "red flags." (You only thought Facebook was tracking your activity before.)

    – The internet and video game violence did it, and we "must stop or substantially reduce this." (Has there ever been any scientific support for a link between video games and real world violence?)

    – Somehow, we must "reform mental health laws" so that potentially violent people can be identified, treated, and if necessary, "confined." (I guess first on the agenda will be getting rid of privacy laws that are supposed to protect patient info.)

  • Urban Negritude says:

    For the sake of argument, if video games are to blame for these sad incidents, then the President should not have a problem adding his own hate-filled twitter feed to that list.

  • Trump is mentally ill . He claimed to be capable of " shooting someone on fifth Ave " the people should demand a permanent restraining order protecting us from Trump .

  • You want to know what a sociopath narcisist impersonating a president looks like?…………………..here you go.

  • Show me another country, in the entire world, where at anytime, anywhere, during any activity can be gunned down……in the amounts of times it happens here in "America the great"……..go ahead, I'll wait for an answer.

  • George Washington and Donald Trump shouldn't even be on the same page. In fact….George would of got Trump for being a traitor worse than Benedict Arnold.

  • Shame on him, he doesn’t care about lives, he only cares about his wallet. Shame on all those standing behind this person. Like he said, they have mental illness.

  • All the condolences in the world mean little if we just sit back and take no proactive steps to combat the growing problem of mass shooting. Unlike isolated incidents of gun violence, mass shootings are premeditated acts of terror intent on killing as many people as possible. As law enforcement has been telling us repeatedly, "If you see something, say something." In social media, there is no shortage of trolls whose mission is to instigate division and foment hatred. For a start, we must report those agents of disinformation and hate. If you see suspicious behavior or a manifesto-like posting on line, alert the authorities immediately. Last but not least, contact your Senators and Congressional Representatives to share your ideas for solutions. Now is time for our nation to play offensive against this epidemic. If we all do our small part, we may just be able to prevent the next mass shooting or terrorist attack.

  • "This morning our nation is overcome with shock, horror, and sorrow." Mr. President, the same can be said every time that you tweet.

  • Magma Sunburst says:

    Quentin Tarantino shares the blame in this. There is a difference in violent movies made before 1980. He set a new low.

  • He READS what someone else has written- "The Shadow Knows" what he REALLY THINKS- "TOO BAD"! This is just one of TOO MANY occasions for him "SOAK-UP the NEWS CYCLE" with his fake-news CROCODILE TEARS ! The "LAW and ORDER Candidate" WHAT a CROCK! – VOTE him OUT !!

  • Does anyone believe that Donald Trumputinsky was sincere and actually wrote those words to our Nation? TOO LITTLE TOO LATE!!!

  • White Supremacy is an ethnic slur, and a hate crime against whites.
    If you grade on a curve don’t blame the whites for ranking supreme.
    The rest of the world should strive to do do as well.
    May God bless the Great White Race and protect them from evil.
    Report anyone who might harbor hate or hold radical opinions against
    our most precious resource, the Great White Hope for America.
    It’s time to identify and put down the evil, envious cowards.
    Godspeed.

  • I'm sicken by the mass murders in
    Gilroy California
    South Haven Mississippi
    El Paso Texas
    Dayton Ohio
    My prayers are with America.

  • Wicked man = White supremacist. Encouraged by wicked tweets by another racist. Thank the police, instead of implementing policies to save the police and citizens from having to deal with the destruction that automatic rifles cause.

  • Trump gets his border wall funding and the Democrats get multiple shootings so that they can take away guns from law-abiding citizens

  • Adam Torres Sr says:

    Ohio shooter was extremist leftist… Warren supporter. Texas guy was a POS racist. Its all about white supremacy now. Yet when muslims do this they conceal identity as long as possible and always try to say dont blame islam. And black are responsible for most gun deaths in every big city…. I hope you all see the disparaging double standard.

  • Every human being on the face of this earth, now gravitates
    towards those country's run by "WHITE CULTURE". They all
    want to move to and live in countries dominated by and run
    the white man. "WHITE CULTURE", its the wealthiest and the
    most creative culture on the face of this earth. But to those
    who come the reason is simplified … money talks.

    Look at the world around you, its plain to see, these are the
    countries which recognize "individual rights" and adhere to
    an objective "Rule of Law.": America is one. Though it may
    have racists living within its borders, it recognizes "rights"
    and not 'race.' Arguments centre around violations of rights
    and not around violations of 'race', though the actual racist
    would have you think otherwise, with his 'race' calling card.

    One can go back in history, to before during and after the
    CRUSADES, to see the same intellectual and a productive
    superiority of the flourishing of "WHITE CULTURE"

    In summary, it is "WHITE SUPREMACY". For it stands for
    the supremacy of "reason" and "rights", passed down to
    us in history, by the WHITE MAN'S CULTURE. You may
    know it another name … WESTERN CIVILIZATION.

    Is this what you want to eliminate Mr President?? The left
    is attacking "WHITE SUPREMACY", as all their attacks on
    everything America, because its true!! Its no less than
    an attack on Western Civilization. And which you are now
    aiding and abetting

    The viscous attacks on White America can make a grown
    man angry and crazy, let alone a young mind in school that
    is being fed this poison.

    The hate is real, but it is directed AGAINST the white man,
    and not the other way round.

  • What in the world. This speech is very poorly written and is full of cheesy pontificating, unproven claims, outright crudity, over the top demands, and a flagrant error of naming the wrong city at the finale. smh
    No rising to the moment with a speech filled with knowledgeable and legally based useful direction. No help here.
    Our hope lies with the sensible members of Congress.

  • Any one who goes to church and comes away with backing Trump and his hate messages are not true followers of Jesus who advocated no one doing any physical or spiritual to anyone.

  • Alberto Enriquez says:

    He looked like a child forced to eat their veggies. He hated reading this script, he'd rather read the shooter's screed at his next rally.

  • I blame you you racist pig, you need to be held accountable just like Alex Jones you know very well what you are doing

    I hope lawyers are looking into this right now

    People vote vote vote this racist bigot out of office

  • August Whitlock says:

    Seriously, we need to fight off hatred, racism, and white supremacy with the poster child of those moments as our leader? Seriously. Maybe if our President didn't call people in a city 'infestation' then people in this world wouldn't do outrageous, hateful acts like these.

  • WoodBeast onyoutube says:

    Big cause is Democrats refusing to close our borders. Now is the time to do that. We need to access who is here. Pelosi and others do your jobs!!!!!!!!!!! Trump is doing his

  • How about building walls around angry young men who purchase automatic weapons to slaughter innocent defenseless people…because they can.

  • Be aware of your surroundings, stay vigilant and stay armed so you have a chance against a psychopath. And yet no mention or coverage of the 46 total dead over weekend in Chicago, New York, Baltimore, Detroit…. just another day in the democrat neighborhoods. I’m glad he mentioned due process. I’d like to know what percentage of violent criminals come from fatherless homes, bet you it’s over 80%

  • Wahida Noorzad says:

    You are a shame on this great nation. We deserve better than you. We don’t believe a word you read today. You are a racist pig

  • He encourages with racism, you want to help, leave the office better yet leave the country. We dont need a racist president.

  • Trump is a useless POS! Remember when he told his supporters at a rally how everyone wanted him to act more presidential? He said, and I quote, ‘I can act presidential ‘ and he walked around on stage with the PHONY somber look. That was the same PHONY somber look he put on, he could care less about any of the people murdered by his supporter. He needed someone to write his speech because he has NO COMPASSION! He is also TOO STUPID TO READ!

  • so, to summarize:
    death penalty
    more surveillance
    incarcerate mentally ill people
    no guns for domestic terrorists
    videogames are bad
    yeah, i really dont think any of that is good except for the no guns for terrorists. and even that sounds like a ploy to disarm one side and leave the other untouched. considering who he has called terrorist in the past.

    SEE LINK FOR TWITTER FEED ANTI-ICE HARDLY SOUNDS LIKE RIGHT-WING, NOW DOES IT?

    Twitter Account Allegedly Linked to Ohio Shooter Retweeted Doxxing of ICE Employees
    https://www.breitbart.com/crime/2019/08/05/twitter-account-allegedly-linked-to-ohio-shooter-retweeted-doxxing-of-ice-employees/

    The Twitter account that has been linked to the gunman behind the mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, early Sunday morning 4 August 2019 re-tweeted a list purporting to provide names of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees.

    Twitter suspended the alleged account, @iamthespookster, on Sunday evening after several outlets had reported it belonged to the Ohio shooter, who murdered nine people and wounded dozens more before being fatally shot by police.

    Screen-grabs of the @iamthespookster account showed tweets that supported socialism, opposed the election of Donald Trump, and backed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president in the 2020 election.

    The @iamthespookster account also re-tweeted a post by a Twitter user going by the name “@poohcowboy_drew,” who produced “a list of people who work for ICE” and encouraged readers to harass them into quitting their jobs.

    The name on the @poohcowboy_drew account appears to have been changed, and its tweets have been protected from view by the owner of the account.

    In addition, other tweets showed hostility toward ICE. One tweet from @iamthespookster urged, “Slice ICE tires.”

    The @iamthespookster account also re-tweeted a similar post by another user, a tongue-in-cheek tweet urging followers to disable ICE vehicles:

    The full tweet and image, showing a tire valve being severed by pliers, are provided below:

    Thus far, the mainstream media have avoided discussing the political views of the Ohio shooter. It is not known whether his views were the motivation for the shooting.

  • Sharkbait In New England says:

    How come these two shooters' internet activity didn't flag authorities and stop these two fools before they started shooting up the public???

  • Yet trump has done a complete about face,after INFLUENCING HATRED,now He RENOUNCES IT,😕 HMMM,quite confusing like cutting someone and then offering a bandaid….

  • Marine Veteran USA says:

    I have ZERO problems of the Government taking away Social Media. Never cared for or was ever into FB, Instagram, Twitter or anyother of those of nonesense social networks. It's been nothing but problems for the U.S. anyway. Just leave my guns alone.

  • Good news! The DOJ is directed to propose legislation ensuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the death penalty to be delivered quickly and decisively. This should deter the Deep St–, uhh, those directly and indirectly involved (like MSM) a little from bringing about all these deaths, yes? (Btw, what really happened to joe's intern?)

  • Why was the El Paso shooter wearing khaki cargo pants in the surveillance footage, but he was wearing khaki pants other than cargo pants during his arrest?

  • Melania what don t you do like that educated, intelligent princess of Dubai Haya bint al- Hussein, and help expose this guy? you don t have enough money yet?

  • Deplorable Trump2020 says:

    Why do you try to blame the president on this? You want to see hate,,,look inward
    MSM promotes copycats by giving them spotlight, you are the racists here. White, black, brown , you just want ratings.  The price is death !!! And you are willing to pay it But with other peoples lives, playing the death card now, Shameful.

  • He said Dayton the first time then at the end of his speech he said Toledo. He sounds out of breath and his speech is slurred in many cases. Near the end I actually thought he might pass out. There is something wrong with this dude. I mean, you can actually see his cognitive ability decline as the speech went along and by the end of it, he looked like he was going to collapse. He couldn't get out of there fast enough.

  • Bennie & Bonnie says:

    I’m a big Trump supporter, but if President Trump contacted the President of Mexico to express condolences, then why not Germany as well? One of the dead was a German citizen.

  • Trump at that press conference reminds me of that old Star Trek episode with the Nazis, where the Fuhrer was drugged and just made to look like he was giving speeches, lol.

  • Kathy Rodriguez says:

    Quit saying its because mental no its your fault there hatered again with your dame tweets and your dame rallys of racism say it like it is mr president quit blaming other reasons for the one who is really responsible for all this racist bull crap people are getting killed this is not what usa is about

  • TreeLynn Treats says:

    Two? Three evil attacks. And suppression of a certain group of free thinkers will not solve this issue. Neither will this player in the game. We need to come together as humans and love each other like we're one ginormous family. That…is the only way.

  • So then #BeBest is the answer to the whole problem? And maybe a little less drug use from potus? Good Lord. Bless his heart.

  • Adriana Chinchilla says:

    “Hate has no place in America”

    Oh but He could lock innocent children and their parents

    He is such a disgusting president he literally makes me gag

  • I don't believe anything this man says that he reads, i want him to speak randomly off the dome so i know how he really feels.

  • Trump you cited this violence, you can't clean it up by reading. Trump makes it obvious to his followers that he is reading so they know he is being made or directed to give this speach. And for you people that think that cited is a typo no ints correct because incite = no-cite. So Trump has cited violence in these cases.

  • Forever Invisible 2102 says:

    So because I have a mental illness I should be locked up?!? I would never hurt anyone. He is making this country lose rights. I have rights too! Get this clown out of office!

  • Trump, talking about migrants on the southern border: “How do you stop these people?”

    Crowd: “Shoot them.”

    Trump, chuckling: “That’s only in the Panhandle you can get away with that stuff.”

  • And still the NRA/politians who support guns, profit while Americans continue to constantly die in mass shootings. And still there is no concrete solutions to combat mentally ill humans to continually obtain guns easily and legally in the US. Gun supporters need to wake up to the fact that they are supporting mass shootings in the US. Bravo to Trump for discrediting racist and mass shooters but constant prayers for victims is no solution to insane ppl being able to easily obtain guns to slaughter innocent Americans and families.
