As part of his ongoing bigotry, fear and hate-mongering campaign, Trump pinned this Willy Horton-style tweet to the top of his twitter account earlier today. What he failed to mention: the man in the video, Luis Bracamontes was deported by the Clinton administration and sneaked back into the US under the Bush administration in 2001. He was deported again, but was back in 2002. Border security was greatly increased in the succeeding years under both Bush and Obama.
Also, Bracamontes used an AR-15 to do his killing --- a gun that most Democrats want to ban and the weapon of choice in many recent mass shootings.
Also today, Trump announced that he will order soldiers to shoot anyone who throws rocks at the border, conjuring West Bank images of confrontations between West Bank children and Israeli forces. That isn't going to happen because there won't be a standoff between soldiers and refugees and no way will American military officers obey such an order if it's issued.
Evidently the mail bombs and the mass murder of Jewish worshipers weren't enough for Trump and his supporters, so he''ll keep up the rhetoric of hate and violence, pushing unstable, angry bigots toward more violence.
And every company and battalion commander will look his lieutenants in the eye and say “I don’t give a **** about what you thought you heard on TV. You will do what you were trained to do and ONLY what you were trained to do” https://t.co/C0hRXjOl4q— Gen Michael Hayden (@GenMhayden) November 1, 2018
