Trump Fires Back After Obama Released A Statement With A Veiled Jab Regarding Mass Shootings

President Trump on Tuesday fired back at Barack Obama after the former president released a statement on Monday about the mass shootings that occurred over the weekend.

Trump tweeted a quote from “Fox & Friends” co-anchor Brian Kilmeade pushing back at Obama in reference to mass shootings during his presidency.

Trump tweeted the quote shortly after Kilmeade expressed dismay with Obama’s statements regarding the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, over the weekend that left at least 32 people dead, as per The Hill.

“I’m just wondering did [George W. Bush] ever condemn President Obama after Sandy Hook?” Kilmeade asked, referring to a 2012 mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school. “[Obama] had 32 mass shootings of four or more during his reign. Not many people said, ‘wow President Obama is out of control.’ 17 so far for President Trump. It’s way too high. But I have news for you. Mass shootings were happening before the president thought about even running for president of the United States.”

On Monday, Obama tweeted a statement with a veiled jab at President Trump while urging people to reject leaders who feed “a climate of fear and hatred.”

“We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred and normalizes racist sentiment,” Obama claimed. “Leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.” (Continued Below)

President Trump on Monday urged the nation to condemn bigotry and white supremacy while delivering remarks from the White House.

The President also quoted Ainsley Earhardt of “Fox and Friends” who noted that during political season, Democrats drum up their “racist narrative.”

The Commander in Chief wrote, “It’s political season and the election is around the corner. They want to continue to push that racist narrative.” @ainsleyearhardt @foxandfriends And I am the least racist person. Black, Hispanic and Asian Unemployment is the lowest (BEST) in the history of the United States!”
