Trump blamed everything but gun control for the mass shootings happening all over the U.S. and took no responsibility for his hateful rhetoric which has played a role in recent violence against minorities.

‘We must recognize that the Internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and perform demented acts. We must shine a light on the dark recesses of the Internet and stop mass-murders before they start,’ he continued.
There was no mention of gun control or a call for stronger background checks both of which are actually something that would have an actual effect on mass shootings.
