El Paso Mayor Gave The Best Answers To Trump's Alleged 'Racism' As The Reason Of The Tragedy
The former Congressman Beto O'Rourke while speaking on CNN's @State of the Union" suddenly accused Trump in the shootings that happened Sunday, citing that exactly President Donald Trump's racism is the reason behind the "violence in America. After that host CNN's Jake tapper while talking to El Paso Mayor Dee Margo tried to press him on this issue.
But the Mayor postponed the answers saying that his main his main goal now is to take care of the city and talk to discuss over whose blame it is. Despite Tapper's repeatedly tried tp get Margo to take a stance on Trump's alleged racism, Margo just hut him up.
"Former Congressman from El Paso, Beto O'Rourke, told me earlier in the show that, in his view, the president's anti-immigrant rhetoric is making things worse and creating an atmosphere of violence. Do you agree? Do you have any concerns about the things President Trump says about immigrants?" Tapper asked.
"Jake, I'm not qualified to make a comment on that. I'm not a talking head. I'm focusing on the El Pasoans and the 20 deaths, their families and what it means to this community and how we can come together and not be victimized by this," Margo responded. "This will not define us. We are a unique region that's been here for 350 years. There's families on both sides. There's commerce on both sides. We're bi-national and bi-cultural. We're almost 2.5 million people and our average age is 32. This will not define us."
"The Texas Land Commissioner, George P. Bush, said in a statement that 'white terrorism' is a 'real and present threat that we must all denounce and defeat.' Do you agree that white terrorism is a threat to the United States?" Tapper asked
"Jake, I'm not qualified to respond to that anymore than the previous question," Margo said. "I'm focusing on El Paso. There's evil in this world and it's unfortunate."
