U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar is blasting President Trump for setting a tone of hate in the country after this weekend’s mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.
The Democratic presidential candidate said she isn’t claiming Trump is responsible for the mass shootings but did say that he has played a role in the rising amount of hate in America.
On Sunday President Trump told reporters mass shootings needed to be stopped and that hate has no place in the U.S. He went on to link both attacks to a “mental illness problem”, saying the gunmen were “very, very seriously mentally ill”.
