2020 White house hopeful and Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, says President Trump has not done a good job, bringing together the Americans, after the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso.

Democratic presidential candidate Tim Ryan slammed the National Rifle Association on Sunday in the Wake of two mass shootings last weekend that left 31 dead and many wounded.

Ryan, a Democratic Congressman from Ohio, criticized the arguments of some Republican politicians and NRA members, the shootings, the causes of the frequent mass in the United States to play mental illness and violent video.

“The NRA, her suggestion, we do nothing, we do nothing,” Ryan said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.” “We know that the mass will pass shootings, especially in the United States, at least at this level.”


Ryan added: “There are mental diseases that in other countries, there are video games in other countries. How do we take some modest steps to eliminate these weapons from the hands of the people start.”

Last weekend’s mass shooting in a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, and in a popular nightlife district in the city centre of Dayton, Ohio took place inside. The alleged shooter, in El Paso, the 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, allegedly wrote in an online Manifesto) before carrying out the attack that he was targeting Mexicans because of the “invasion” of Hispanics in the US – a detail that Ryan and other critics of President Trump, the blame for the hardline immigration rhetoric, at least partially, inspirational shooter.


“There are ethical lines we should not cross,”” Ryan said on Sunday. “I think the President has not done a good job of bringing in all setting a tone of people together. He is the first, lit the joint on Twitter, and start a fight. I mean, say the advocates of it. Like, he can’t do that. This country needs to heal, and I’m on the search for new and better, not to the left or to the right.”

Despite the claims of some of the President, his critics, trump the rhetoric and language El Paso-shooter to carry out his attacks, Crusius in his online heats, with reference to all screed, that he his anti-Hispanic views, long before Trump election in 2016.


While Ryan – who has been in the news a good deal, since the shooting last weekend-says he is optimistic about his own presidential candidates, poll numbers have him still far from a viable contender in the Democratic presidential primary.


In the average of recent polls compiled by Real Clear Politics, Ryan, Biden, on average, less than 1 percent support nationwide, compared to more than 31 percent for the former Vice-President, Joe. Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernie Sanders of Vermont in the seats of the second and third, respectively, with Warren nabbing just over 18 percent, and Sanders pulls in 16.5%.
