Prior to President Trump’s planned visit to El Paso, Texas, where – at the latest number – 22 people were killed by a gunman, Texas Congresswoman Veronica Escobar said that Trump should stay away and that he’s not welcome in El Paso.
Escobar appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program to talk about Donald Trump and the shooting and how it’s all his fault, of course.
“From my perspective, he is not welcome here. He should not come here while we are in mourning,” the congresswoman, whose district includes most of El Paso, told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“I would encourage the president’s staff members to have him do a little self-reflection. I would encourage them to show him his own words and his actions at the rallies because we’re not going to get past this until there is acknowledgment from the very top that we need to heal, that this whole country is hurting, that there has been bigotry and racism and hatred that has been stoked at all levels.”
“Words have consequences. The president has made my community and my people the enemy. He has told the country that we are people to be feared, people to be hated.”
“I hope that [Trump] has the self-awareness to understand that we are in pain, and we are mourning, and we are doing the very best in our typical, graceful, El Paso way to be resilient. And so I would ask his staff and his team to consider the fact that his words and his actions have played a role in this.”
She is so full of it!
Never has the President said that people of El Paso are to be feared or hated. Never has he said Hispanics are to be feared or hated.
All she is doing is race-baiting, but the only idiots who fall for it are over on the left already anyway and can’t be swayed because of their feelings.
