When people who commit mass shootings state they agree with Trump, then yeah, his words and actions just might need to be reigned in a bit. He's just fueling the fire.

This Trump deplorable probably killed more people in one day than illegals will kill all year
If the Trump deplorable are the people that are responsible for more than 50% of all murders in this country you may be coorect.

Then what was the excuse for all of the mass shootings under Obama’s watch?

It wasn't from people who agreed with Obama's rhetoric against people of color and immigrants, that's for sure.

This is one of those subjective statements where it is just about impossible to prove or disprove. Instead you can only lay in varying degrees of percentage of responsibility. Trump did not give the guy a gun nor blatantly tell the guy to do violence, but it sure seems like he creates an environment that makes people more agitated. I think it's safe that the majority of people would agree that Trump certainly doesn't help reduce the occurrence of hate, frustration, and violence.

San Bernardino terrorist attack the Pulse Nightclub the Fort hood massacre, the Boston bombing terrorist attacks, the Navy yard murders, and Dallas police assassinations.

He emboldened Islamists and BLM radicals to the point that they were attacking us. After all he was secretly meeting with Muslim Brotherhood members and now we find out he was secretly meeting with the most Racist black man in US history. No surprise he emboldened enemies of our country. That's what Leftist do!

I agree that Congress needs to do something on immigration reform. But Trump's demonizing minorities isn't helping.
In my state, statistics show a large % of Latino families utilize welfare, food stamps, state (free) medical, and the like. Am I racist and divisive by saying so?

I also see a lot of Latino families that aren't on any of the programs and work really hard.

No I don't see you as racist. But I see Trump promoting racism by telling American congresswomen to go back to the countries they came from, laughing at somebody yelling at one of his rallies about shooting migrants, trying to demonize Mexicans as being drug dealers and rapists, wanting more people to come here from Scandanavian countries, etc. He breeds violence and racism with most every tweet and rally he has anything to do with. You'd think the leader of the free world would try to lead with cohesion and compassion. But no, not this one. We get Beevis and Butthead all rolled into one.
