Biden links Trump to El Paso shooting, rise of white supremacy


Saying that President Trump has “fanned the flames of white supremacy in this nation,” Democratic presidential primary front-runner Joe Biden on Wednesday sought to directly link the president to the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.

“The danger that Donald Trump and the alt-right pose to this nation isn’t hypothetical,” Biden said.

The charges by the former vice president – during a speech in Burlington, Iowa – came on the same day that Trump was traveling to El Paso to visit with law enforcement, first responders and victims of the shooting, which left at least 22 people dead. The president also stopped in Dayton, Ohio, the site of another mass shooting this past weekend.
