U.S. President Donald Trump denounced the two mass shootings in Ohio and Texas while speaking to reporters in Morristown, New Jersey, on his way back to Washington, Sunday, August 4.
He said, “hate has no place in our country,” and that “we’re going to take care” of the problem. He also noted that he would speak with the U.S. Attorney General, FBI director and members of Congress and will be making an additional statement Monday, August 5.
