O’rourke continued: “The crowd roars their approval. The President smiles and he laughs his approval. What is the President of the United States is no longer dangerous. He has the blood of these 22 people in El Paso on his hands. And, the answer to this has, on the defeat of Donald Trump, how important it is. It goes to the root of the problem.”

Video of the trump rally showed that Trump started the discussion, a migrant caravan, on the way to the southern border: “do not forget, we let you, and we can’t allow you to use weapons. Other countries are doing. We can’t do it. I would never do that.”

After someone yelled, “shoot them,” Trump smiled, shook his head and replied, “That’s only in the Panhandle, you can get away with this statement.”
