NBC News reports:
As President Donald Trump travels Wednesday to El Paso, Texas, former Vice President Joe Biden will draw a direct link between his inflammatory rhetoric on immigration and Saturday’s mass shooting in the border city, saying the president has “aligned himself with the darkest forces in the nation.”
“How far is it from Trump’s saying this ‘is an invasion’ to the shooter in El Paso declaring ‘his attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas? Not far at all,” Biden, who leads the 2020 Democratic presidential field in the polls, will say at a campaign event in eastern Iowa this afternoon, according to excerpts of his remarks provided by the campaign.
“In both clear language and in code, the president has fanned the flames of white supremacy in this nation.”
