The nerve this woman has!
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said she thinks President Trump is responsible for the latest mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday.
“Enough is enough. America, when are you going to demand action on guns?” She tweeted. “Another senseless mass killing by a young white nationalist. Trump, you cannot escape accepting blame for these escalating killings in our country that are motivated by your race baiting!”

Presidential candidate and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) echoed Waters’ remarks Sunday during an interview on the Union State of CNN, saying he thinks that the president is a white nationalist, noted Breitbart News.
“Yes. I do. And again from some of the record that I just recited to you, the things that he has said both as a candidate and then as the president of the United States, this cannot be open for debate,” O’Rourke asserted.
He continued to add:
And you as well as I have a responsibility to call that out, to make sure that the American people understand what is being done in their name by the person who holds the highest position of public trust in this land. He did not even pretend to respect our differences or to understand that we are all created equal.
O’Rourke also accused the president with tolerating racism and hate, blaming Fox News and the internet for promoting it.
“It doesn’t just offend us. It encourages the violence we are seeing, including in my home town of El Paso this weekend,” he pressed.
However, on Twitter Saturday, President Trump condemned the supposed activities of the El Paso shooter, calling them “an act of cowardice.”
“Today’s shooting in El Paso, Texas was not only tragic, it was an act of cowardice. I know that I stand with everyone in this Country to condemn today’s hateful act. There are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing innocent people,” he emphasized. “Melania and I send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the great people of Texas.”
