Following the horrific mass shootings that occurred over the weekend, Donald Trump condemned acts of racism and white supremacy in his address to the nation.

“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,” Trump said from the White House. “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America.”

“Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul,” he added.

However, Trump did not call for further gun control measures, instead he spoke about how violent video games and mental illness, among other factors, were to blame for these tragedies.

“Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun,” he said.

As we reported, 20 people died after a gunman went on a rampage in an El Paso, Walmart.

Another nine people died after another mass shooting occurred at a popular nightlife district in Dayton, Ohio.

During his speech, Trump mistakenly claimed that the shooting in Ohio took place in Toledo, not Dayton.
