President Trump goes to El Paso, Mexico to investigate the attack itself
On Saturday, a 21-year-old white man with racist motives opened fire in a shopping mall in El Paso. He killed 22 people, including some Mexicans. In Dayton, Ohio, a 24-year-old man shot nine people at a bar. Why he did that is still unclear.
The authorities announced on Monday that among the fatalities there is a person with German nationality. Eight Mexicans were killed. The shooter would have targeted them.
According to Trump, country must condemn racism, hate crime and white superiority. Democratic presidential candidate Beto O ‘Rourke believes that Trump should stay away from El Paso.
“He helped create what we saw in El Paso.”
The perpetrator of the massacre in El Paso had put a manifesto online before his attack in which he stated that the shooting was an answer to the “invasion of hispanics” in Texas.
Mexico also announced that it would investigate the mass murder in El Paso itself. The neighboring country of the United States regards the massacre as a terrorist attack. Mexico is considering extradition from the suspect.
“We consider this an act of terrorism, in this case carried out on American territory, but an act of terrorism against Mexicans,” said Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard.
The suspect is caught. He is charged with murder, but there may be additional charges.
