Maxine Waters blames Trump for 'escalated killings' motivated by 'race baiting'
Rep. Maxine Waters responded to the recent tragedies by stating the following on Twitter, "Enough is enough. America, when are you going to demand action on guns? Another senseless mass killing by a young white nationalist. Trump, you cannot escape accepting blame for these escalating killings in our country that are motivated by your race baiting!"
Many Democrats have used the recent criminal shootings to wage further war with President Donald Trump, politicizing the tragedies that have occurred.

Maxine Waters received some backlash for her comment. Several people posted a reminder of when Waters suggested that people confront Trump supporters.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” pic.twitter.com/odN4dKYW10— WIN WIN WIN TRUMP (@AlDubest2Evry1) August 4, 2019

Race baiting? I only see you playing that game. Maxine Waters all you want to more government control and want this as a narrative to take away the second amendment right from Americans.— Omar Navarro (@RealOmarNavarro) August 4, 2019
Do you have info showing these killers were members of some mysterious white nationalist group? The OH shooter killed his own sister. #mentalhealth is more likely the problem than anything.— Laurie (@WaltsPrincesss) August 4, 2019
