WASHINGTON: President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump are traveling to Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, where mass shootings over the weekend claimed more than 30 lives and injured dozens more. The President saying:
“We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil, the cruelty, the hatred, the malice, the bloodshed, and the terror,” President Trump said yesterday at the White House. “Our hearts are shattered for every family whose parents, children, husbands, and wives were ripped from their arms and their lives.”
The President is calling for the country to come together, for bipartisan action to confront gun violence. He has condemned the scourge of white supremacy.
America is not powerless. “We must honor the sacred memory of those we have lost by acting as one people . . . We must seek real, bipartisan solutions.” pic.twitter.com/PECJGG2g7K

The President has expressed his gratitude for the law enforcement in Ohio and Texas “who responded to these atrocities with the extraordinary grace and courage of American heroes.” He recognizes that our police, firefighters, soldiers, ICE and border patrol are what keep you, and he, safe.
The President is meeting all the points. Hitting all the marks. Being the President of all of America.
Where are the Democrats. #TheyAreTheHate
What is missing is Nancy Pelosi.
Why isn’t Nancy Pelosi with the President on this trip? As the leaders of the House Democrats, and third in line to the presidency, did she call the president and offer to stand by his stand as a show of unity? Of course not. If she had, there would be a presser.
So why is the only voice coming from the Democrats the political rants of Beto O’Rourke, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren? Why is Pelosi allowing Kamala Harris and Christian Gillibrand, with their political aspirations, to be the voice of 50% of the country?
Why is Joaquin Castro not being censored by Democrats for doxxing contributors to the Trump campaign:
Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’ pic.twitter.com/YT85IBF19u

The President in Ohio
Ohio is a Trump state, however, protestors have scattered along the route the President is taking to the hospital. They are failing to take steps to heal, to put politics aside for a day. #TheyAreTheHate. Beto O’Rourke with his unending chittering and hand-raising, finger-pointing. #TheyAreTheHate

Taxpayer dollars pay all Congressional salaries
It is simply time for American’s to demand that the hate stop. That liberals pull back on the hate. That all politicians sit down together to find an answer. The time to address gun control is now. But that conversation starts with addressing the hate in America. And it is pervasive. At family tables, community gatherings on cable news. A non-stop blathering of hate for the President and the President’s supporters. And it always falls back on dog-whistle talking points.
Case in point, family gathering and someone laments they have to purchase items only available at Hobby Lobby. Respectfully asking they not bring politics into an otherwise nice gathering. This lambast was about the fact that Hobby Lobby will not pay for birth control. #TheyAreTheHate
Our enemies should be North Korea, Iran – not North Dakota or Indiana
During World War II there was a sense of unity in America unseen until 9/11. Unfortunately, 9/11 has become not an attack on our home soil, but “some people who did something.” Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashid Tlaib, Alyssa Pressley, all promote anti-American sentiment. #TheyAretheHate.
Hillary Clinton and her comments on Deplorables. #TheyAreTheHate

Gun Laws will not stop future carnage
Returning to our values of families with engaged mothers and fathers will change the carnage. (Of the 27 Deadliest Mass Shooters, 26 of Them Were Fatherless) . We need to return to a society with respect for our police, first responders. (Acting ICE Director Torches Dems Who Are Calling to Abolish ICE)
We need to embrace a love for ourselves and a higher being that encourages love over hate.
America is America. It is wheatfields under a North Dakota Sun. Corn in Kansas. Big cities and little towns. The hate, however, is in the big cities. It is where people watch cable news. Where voices are given to people who are the hate that causes tragedy – on big and little scales every day.
America is a place that is being slowly destroyed in Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Baltimore, Detroit, and New York by liberal policies that encourage us to bow down to the lowest denominators. (Baltimore & Cummings: Democrat grifters peddle racism and broken cities and With the Left in charge, Seattle and Los Angeles are dying. Chaos on camera (videos)).
We need to demand our leaders become leaders, setting aside their roles as politicians to do the job they are elected to. To put their political aspirations to the side, for the sake of America.
But that will not happen. Warren is using the tragedy to raise money. O’rourke is using the tragedy to raise calls for the President to be presidential while he himself drops f-bombs in every interview.
We need to individually stand up and stop the hate. Love your family, love your neighbor. Love your colleague. We can overcome the socialist liberals fighting for control over America. #TheyAreTheHate
