President Trump’s critics are accusing the president of being responsible for the mass shooting in El Paso because the suspect expressed racist views.

I misspoke about Trump calling for an extermination of Latinos. My mistake was unintentional and I’m sorry. Trump’s constant assault on people of color and his use of the word “invasion” to describe the flow of immigrants is intentional and constant.

The escalation of attacks against President Trump and his supporters are a dangerous development.
The verbal assault is built on propaganda claiming the president is a white supremacist and a racist and the goal is to silence President Trump’s supporters through intimidation.
