Former El Paso Congressman Beto O’Rourke Calls Trump A White Nationalist After Mass Shooting

In the aftermath of the El Paso, Texas mass shooting that left 20 dead on Saturday (August 3), the city’s former congressman Beto O’Rourke voiced his opinion, calling President Donald Trump a white nationalist.

While speaking on CNN‘s ‘State of the Union,’ the democratic presidential candidate answered Jake Tapper‘s question of “Do you think President Trump is a white nationalist?”

In addition to referencing Trump’s record of insulting Mexicans as “rapists,” and describing asylum seeking migrants as an infestation, O’Rourke responded “Yes. I do. The things that he has said both as a candidate and then as the President of the United States, this cannot be open for debate.”

Also, O’Rourke stated, “We have a problem with white nationalist terrorism in the United States of America today. These are white men motivated by the kind of fear that this President traffics in.”

Offering a solution, he adds, that it will take “all of us — Republicans, Democrats, independents alike — rising up, standing up to be counted against what this President is doing, against this white nationalist racism, against this violence and getting this country back.”
