President Trump Visiting El Paso, TX, Wednesday
After Saturday's horrific mass shooting in El Paso, the President of the United States is now coming to the Sun City.
The death toll from the shooting at the Cielo Vista Mall Walmart went up to 22 after another two people shot passed away at local hospitals. Many continue to be held at local hospitals and some families are still waiting to be notified by authorities if their loved one is indeed one of those who lost their lives and still need to be identified. While the investigation into the shooting continues and families have yet to bury their loved ones, the President of the United States has decided to come visit the El Paso area.
According to KVIA, the President has announced he will be visiting El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio- the cities both affected by mass shootings this past weekend:
"The Associated Press reported that the Federal Aviation Administration has issued advisories of VIP travel to El Paso and Dayton on Wednesday. The time of Trump's visit and other details have not been announced, but sources told ABC-7 that a White House advance team was at University Medical Center of El Paso on Monday morning. It's one of two hospitals treating shooting victims."
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke and El Paso congresswoman Veronica Escobar have both come forward saying the President Trump is "not welcome" in El Paso.
