Former President Obama Just Released Scathing Statement — Shows Trump How to be President
Former President Barack Obama released a scathing statement Monday following the weekend’s mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.
“No other nation on earth comes close to experiencing the frequency of mass shootings that we see in the United States. No other developed nation tolerates the level of gun violence that we do,” said Obama.
“Every time this happens, we’re told that tougher gun legislation won’t stop all murders; that they won’t stop every derange individual from getting a weapon and shooting innocent people in public places.”
He said that the El Paso shooting followed a “dangerous trend” of troubled individuals who follow racist ideologies and “see themselves obligated to act violently to preserve white supremacy.”

Without naming names (Trump), he then condemned the rhetoric of leaders which “normalizes racist sentiments.”
“All of us have to send a clarion call and behave with the values of tolerance and diversity that should be the hallmark of our democracy,” said Obama.
“We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear or hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.”
