Obama on Monday called for action in response to back-to-back mass shootings
Former President Obama on Monday called for action in response to back-to-back mass shootings over the weekend. The former president issued a lengthy statement after more than 30 people were killed in mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, over the weekend.
"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 sentiments; 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," Obama said in the statement.
