Trump condemns white supremacy but doesn’t propose gun laws after shootings

Texas Mass shooting leaves many killed wounded

"The shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online, consumed by racist hate", Trump said on Monday in a televised address to the nation from the White House.

The El Paso shooting reverberated on the campaign trail for next year's US presidential election, with several Democratic candidates denouncing the rise of gun violence and repeating calls for tighter gun control measures.

In a brief speech Monday morning, Trump repeated his openness to more gun control measures but avoided any mention of immigration.

In Texas, police and FBI investigators searched for clues as to what motivated the suspect, who is from Allen, Texas, a Dallas suburb some 650 miles east of El Paso, which lies on Rio Grande across the U.S. -Mexico border from Ciudad Juarez. Less than 13 hours later, another shooter attacked a crowd outside a bar in Dayton, Ohio, killing 9 people and injuring 27. Police shot and killed Connor. His motive was not clear.

He directed the Federal Bureau of Investigation to "disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism", and ordered the Department of Justice to propose legislation setting the death penalty for those who commit such crimes.

Trump also cited violent video games as a contributing factor to a series of deadly mass shootings dating back to the 1999 Columbine High School massacre.

"We vow to act with urgent resolve,"he said Monday".

On Monday, Trump appealed to both political parties and said the victims' should not "die in vain".

"Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun", he said in the address.

Trump's speech today largely conformed to the Post's policy prescriptions, although the president's remarks notably fell short of embracing a new "assault weapons" ban.

And we need real mental health reform.

US Congressman Eliot Engel in a tweet on Monday said that Trump can not say Americans need to condemn hatred and racism "while simultaneously stoking hatred and racism for political gain". It defines such an event as a shooting in which at least four people are killed or wounded.

The Democratic socialist was commenting on a Fox News clip with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy arguing that video games could be partly to blame. "We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately".

"The Internet, likewise, is used for human-trafficking, illegal drug distribution and so many other heinous crimes", Trump continued.

"That I why I have called for Red Flag laws - also known as extreme risk protection orders".

Trump suggested that a background check bill could be paired with his long-sought effort to toughen the nation's immigration system.

It was not immediately clear what specific steps Trump wants or what other action he plans to take with Congress on summer recess and United States lawmakers not scheduled to return to Washington until September.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, however, has blocked that and other gun-control legislation from coming to the floor for debate, amendments and votes.

Congress has proven unable to pass substantial gun violence legislation this session, despite the frequency of mass shootings, in large part because of resistance from Republicans, particularly in the GOP-controlled Senate.

Trump appeared to mostly read from prepared remarks on a teleprompter a pool reporter in the room said was set up in front of his blue podium.
