The president and first lady Melania Trump flew to El Paso, Texas, Wednesday afternoon after visiting the Dayton, Ohio, hospital where many of the victims of Sunday’s attack in that city were treated.
The remaining eight patients being treated at University Medical Center in El Paso, Texas following a deadly mass shooting over the weekend declined to meet with the president during his visit there Wednesday.
‘This is a very sensitive time in their lives,’ UMC spokesperson Ryan Mielke told The Washington Post. ‘Some of them said they didn’t want to meet with the president. Some of them didn’t want any visitors.’
Mielke also said the people Donald Trump met with at the hospital were two victims who had already been discharged that returned to the hospital with their families to meet with the president.
Even though the eight victims still being treated didn’t meet with Trump, they did accept visits from other Democratic officials, including Texas Representative Veronica Escobar and Illinois Representative Jesus ‘Chuy’ Garcia.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Trump and first lady Melania Trump met with ‘victims of the tragedy while at the hospital.’
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. It was a moving visit for all involved.’
Outside Dayton’s Miami Valley Hospital, at least 200 protesters gathered, blaming Trump’s incendiary rhetoric for inflaming political and racial tensions in the country and demanding action on gun control.
In El Paso, Trump’s motorcade passed protesters holding “Racist Go Home” signs.
Is this another spin attack by the mainstream media? It appears that way.
