President Trump Arrives in El Paso, Texas to Visit Shooting Victims
U.S. President Donald Trump stepped off Air Force One in El Paso, Texas, Wednesday, August 7, where he will meet victims and first responders after a weekend mass shooting that left 22 dead.
U.S. President Donald Trump is in the Texas border city of El Paso where four days ago a gunman killed 22 people at a Walmart store and injured two dozen more.
The president flew there on Air Force One from Dayton, Ohio, where he and first lady, Melania Trump, spent about an hour at Miami Valley Hospital, speaking with those recovering from a shooting in the city’s nightlife district about 13 hours after the Texas tragedy. In the Dayton attack, which lasted less than a minute, a community college student fired 41 shots that killed nine people, including his sister, and wounded another 27.
“You had God watching. I want you to know we’re with you all the way,” Trump told victims and family members at the hospital, according to White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham.
