Trump falsely accused Sen. Sherrod Brown and Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley of "totally misrepresenting" his trip to a Dayton hospital to visit victims.
A gunman armed with an assault rifle opened fire on shoppers at a packed Walmart store Saturday, reportedly killing at least 15 people in the latest mass shooting in the United States. Although the exact scale of the tragedy in El Paso, Texas, was not yet known, television networks put the numbers of dead at between 15 and 20 while medics reported treating dozens of victims. After speaking to the governor of Texas, President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter that the "reports are very bad, many killed" while several Democrats hoping to defeat him at next year's elections said it was past time to tackle an "epidemic" of gun violence.
The suspected gunman was legally able to buy the assault weapon in Nevada at 19. He couldn't buy the weapon in California where gun laws are stricter.
