After the horrific mass shooting in Ohio and the White supremacist terror attack in Texas, the President of America gave his remarks in his speech on Monday in the White House. Donald Trump blamed almost everything for this ongoing hatred in the country but what he did forgot to mention was his own words that have always encouraged the feeling of hatred among people and always worked in bringing them against each other.
While blaming the problem of mental illness among people for the violence in the country, he said, “Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun.” Along with mental illness, he also did blame the existence of video games. According to him, video games encouraged violence and this kind of behavior in people. Also, in his speech he mentioned the wrong influence of the Internet on the generation.
Instead of taking any of the blame to himself or pledge onto any rhetoric he kept on blaming all the other things. It’s no secret that the President is known for making some offensive remarks and instead of admitting any of these he pushed the blame to mental illness, video games and the internet.
“We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process. That is why I have called for red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders,” Trump said.
