President Donald Trump: “Our Nation Must Condemn Racism, Bigotry and White Supremacy”

U.S. President Donald Trump calls the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, a “crime against humanity,” and that “hate has no place in America.”

U.S. President Donald Trump called Monday for stronger background checks on gun buyers in the immediate aftermath of horrific mayhem in which gunmen killed 29 people in two incidents that occurred in a 13-hour period.

Trump often has suggested the need for more mental health programs for troubled individuals who threaten gun violence. But on Twitter, ahead of a White House address on the weekend carnage, he appeared willing to embrace demands from political opponents that anyone purchasing a weapon be required to undergo a thorough background check.
