U.S.A.: Trump and the Penultimate Massacres

Featured U.S.A.: Trump and the Penultimate Massacres

Democratic candidates to the presidency of their party accused Donald Trump this Sunday for the massacres in Ohio and Texas.

That was the approach expressed by two analysts of the Associated Press (AP), Hunter Woodall and Hope Yen.

Their argument? That the repeated attacks of Trump against minorities had stirred up racial discrimination and violence.

In the course of public acts and television shows, they highlighted the need, among other things, of establishing more limitations to carrying weapons, revisions to their owners and their backgrounds.

But they concentrated almost all their fire on Trump, trying to tie him to the shootings that took place in Dayton and El Paso, where almost 30 people were killed, after months of presidential rhetoric against people from the black community and migrants of the same race.

“There’s a complicity in the president's hatred that undermines the kindness and decency of North Americans regardless of their party", said Cory Booker, senator for New Jersey.

"Keeping silence at times when hatred increases, it’s insufficient to say 'I am not a promoter of hatred.'

"If you don't actively work to fight hatred, to denounce it, you are accomplice of what is happening."

The mayor of South Bend, Pete Buttigieg, said that to fight the terrorism of white nationalists would be shameful for a president who, "to begin with, helped to stir many of these feelings in the country."

Next he remarked, "at best, it condones and encourages white" nationalism.

Senator Kamala Harris, of California, also split some responsibility over the language of Trump that imposes “incredible consequences”.

Kamala highlighted: “We have a president of the United States who has chosen to use his words in a way that it promotes hatred and division among us."

Five minutes later, the Las Vegas lawyer attended a religious ceremony in a church of Las Vegas.

At the same time funeral honors were organized for those killed in that territory, famous for its many casinos.

Meanwhile, the new tragedy confirmed even more the extent in power in the United States of its true owners. Also the hypocrisy of many of the politicians to serve them.
