Democratic presidential candidates are growing increasingly comfortable labeling President Trump a racist or a white supremacist, pointing to his handling of racially divisive and violent incidents in Charlottesville, Va., and El Paso, Texas.
White House hopefuls who previously focused on Trump’s equivocations in the aftermath of the August 2017 Charlottesville white nationalist rally have since expanded that criticism to include the mass shooting in El Paso, where the suspected gunman allegedly posted a manifesto denouncing an “invasion” of Latinos and reportedly told authorities he wanted to kill “Mexicans.”
Democratic contenders wasted little time tying the shooter’s rhetoric to Trump’s own descriptions of immigrants as “thugs” and “criminals” and his characterization of migrant caravans as an “invasion.”
