Did President Trump Say the Dayton, Ohio, Mass Shooting Was in Toledo?

Ted Cruz, who also visited on Wednesday.

She claimed they were 'received very warmly by not just victims and their families, but by the many members of medical staff who lined the hallways to meet them.

Trump told reporters at the El Paso operations centre the two Democrats "should not be politicking today".

President Donald Trump had an unusual idea for raising the morale of medical staff recovering from last weekend's mass shooting in Texas: boast to them about the size of his campaign rally in the city. "It was a moving visit for all involved".

He later commented on the issue while speaking to reporters outside the White House.

Whaley, a Democrat, has made remarks questioning whether Trump's visit will help, and expressed disappointment in the president's aftermath remarks that included an erroneous reference to Toledo instead of Dayton. Such optics are notable because six of the nine deceased victims were black people and Dayton is about 40% black. Mr Trump spent part of his flight between OH and Texas airing his grievances on Twitter, berating Democratic lawmakers, a potential 2020 rival and the press.

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley's stricken community was first to be visited by Trump, who in the wake of two mass shootings over the weekend has called for unity on the heels of his divisive political talk.

Trump, meanwhile, says he condemns "racism, bigotry and white supremacy".

Democratic local leaders including presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke and El Paso Congresswoman Veronica Escobar have blamed Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric for fueling the hate crime that led to a gunman travelling from Dallas to El Paso to carry out his shooting.

Outside the hospital, at least 200 protesters gathered, setting up a "baby Trump" blimp balloon and holding signs reading "Do Something", "Save our city", and "You are why".

"Their news conference after I left for El Paso was a fraud", he wrote. "We met with numerous people".

Along with Anchondo, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway criticized several Democratic presidential candidates in a Fox & Friends appearance on August 6, saying that instead of proposing viable solutions to the issues, they are instead politicizing it and using it to blame Trump.

Whaley responded to the tweets by saying she was "really confused".

"If we, after a tragedy, only confine ourselves to doing those things that would have prevented this tragedy, we are missing a real opportunity", DeWine said. "I want you to know we're with you all the way", according to presidential spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham. "He lives in his world of Twitter", Whaley told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Brown did call Trump and his past rhetoric "racist".

But further investigation showed that the mass shooter, could be a supporter of Sen.

Trump's aides, too, were not happy with how the president reacted, Haberman told CNN.

He also defended his rhetoric after opponents pinned the blame for the massacres on the president's rhetoric and on gun laws they say are not restrictive enough. "News coverage has got to start being fair, balanced and unbiased, or these awful problems will only get worse!", Trump said. "He only said that we will get things done", Brown said, adding the president had been "comforting" to the victims.
