Residents in majority-Hispanic El Paso told US President Donald Trump on Tuesday to stay away amid fury over his anti-immigration rhetoric as he struggles to unite the country in the wake of mass shootings that killed 32 people.
After the weekend shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, which left more than 31 dead, Uruguay followed on Monday Venezuela and warned their citizens to exercise caution when traveling in the United States.
President Jair Bolsonaro argued for his signature policy of relaxing gun control measures, saying they will not stop mass shootings such as those that left 31 dead in the US over the weekend. “Disarming people isn't going to keep that from happening,” Bolsonaro said.
An under-fire President Donald Trump said on Sunday that “hate has no place” in the United States after two mass shootings left 29 dead and sparked accusations that his rhetoric was part of the problem.
