Agree? The shooters manifesto was supportive of trump and his dog whistles to white supremacists has been known for years, as is support from David Duke

Of course not. It's a convenient "political" excuse of course but this guy had issues going way back. He needed something to obsess about and focus his rage on and it's no more about Trump than it is about people claiming it's about Trump, which is just as much a dog whistle as anything else.

It was rhetoric like beto’s promise to demolish the border that prompted this behavior.

Can't vilify someone for saying what they said:

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best."

"They're sending people that have a lot of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

Stuff like that drives sane people crazy, imagine what it does to someone who's not all that sane in the first place.

Clearly illegals aren't the problem with killing lots of people. Need a Trump supporter for that. The data supports illegals committing crimes at a lower rate than citizens.

This Trump deplorable probably killed more people in one day than illegals will kill all year

That’s literally not what the manifesto says. At all.

As for the Beto’s interview ... this is more of a campaign response than anything else.

I truly wish the press would not race to get sound bites from politicians who are in the midst of campaign mode - it ends up being politicking at its worst.

I doubt this dude was perfectly normal in the head, then all of a sudden turned into a mass shooting maniac because of Trump being elected.

Your type of rhetoric will only ensure more.
Your data is wrong.
