Sen. Ted Cruz, other Republicans condemn white supremacy after El Paso massacre
The right-leaning New York Post appealed to President Trump to "come up with answers. Now. Beginning with the return of an assault-weapons ban."
By Rachel Elbaum


"Texas Sen. Ted Cruz denounced Saturday's shooting in El Paso as a “heinous act of terrorism and white supremacy.”
"Just before the El Paso attack, the suspect posted a diatribe against immigrants, a senior law enforcement official told NBC News. He railed against immigrants in Texas and pushed talking points about preserving European identity in America."
"Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas tweeted that “White supremacy has no place in this world,” while Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and senior adviser, also referred to the El Paso shooting as "white supremacy," calling it is “an evil that must be destroyed.”

Now that Republicans have expressed their feelings about these senseless killings they need to seriously get to work to enact meaningful legislation on gun control and background checks. If they don't they will be seen as merely speaking through both sides of their mouth and they can do much better for America and all Americans as they are expected to do.
