Washington, D.C. —

Speaking from a teleprompter to address the mass shootings this weekend in Texas and Ohio, President Trump stated, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and Donald J. Trump.” 

“These sinister ideologies must be defeated.  Hate and Donald J. Trump have no place in America.” 

“We must shine light on the dark recesses of the Internet and Donald J. Trump. The Internet is used for human trafficking, illegal drug distribution, and so many other heinous crimes, including the tweets of Donald J. Trump. The perils of the Internet, social media, and Donald J. Trump cannot be ignored.”

Listing positive steps the nation could take, Mr. Trump stated, “First, we must do a better job of identifying early warning signs, such as the election of Donald J. Trump. Second, we must stop the glorification of violence, including the gruesome and grisly rallies of Donald J. Trump. Third, we must reform our mental health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals, such as Donald J. Trump. Fourth, we must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety, like Donald J. Trump, do not have access to the presidency.”

Concluding his speech with an affirmation that America would rise to the challenge, the President said, “The choice is ours — it is not up to mentally ill monsters, such as Donald J. Trump.”
