We Can No Longer Ignore Trump’s Role in Inspiring Mass Shootings

On Saturday morning, a gunman at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, shot and killed at least 20 people before surrendering to the police. By all accounts, Patrick Crusius, the 21-year-old alleged shooter, is a fan of President Donald Trump and his policies. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center,
“a Twitter account bearing the suspect’s name contains liked tweets
that include a ‘BuildTheWall’ hashtag” and “a photo using guns to spell
out ‘Trump.’”
