Squad Leader Ocasio-Cortez: Trump is “Directly Responsible” for Mass Shooting in El Paso

Squad leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused President Trump for being “directly responsible” for the mass shooting in El Paso last weekend.

Ocasio Cortez made the comments at a vigil in Brooklyn for the victims of El Paso and Dayton, Ohio.

The Hill reported:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) late Monday said that President Trump’s divisive rhetoric on immigration was “directly responsible” for the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas that left at least 22 people dead.

The freshman New York congresswoman made the comments while speaking at a vigil in Brooklyn for the victims of the shooting in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, according to the New York Daily News.

“I’m tired of the questioning if the president is racist. He is,” Ocasio-Cortez told a crowd of about 500 people, the newspaper noted.

The Dayton shooter was a staunch Democrat Socialist who supported Antifa and Elizabeth Warren.
Ocasio-Cortez forgot to mention that in her awful attack on President Trump.
