Rihanna And Cardi B Call Out Donald Trump Following Mass Shootings
Rihanna and Cardi B have called out Donald Trump. According to Rap-Up, Rih and Cardi took to social media on Sunday (August 4th) to call out President Trump after the two mass shootings that left at least 29 people dead and 53 injured over a 13-hour span.
On Saturday (August 3rd), a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, leaving 20 dead and 26 injured. Less than a day later, another gunman opened fire at a popular bar in downtown Dayton, Ohio. Nine people were killed and at least 27 were injured.
The El Paso shooting is being investigated to determine if it is a hate crime after discovering a racist, anti-immigrant manifesto post online by the alleged shooter, who is a 21-year-old white male from Allen, Texas.
President Trump tweeted about the incident, "The FBI, local and state law enforcement are working together in El Paso and in Dayton, Ohio. Information is rapidly being accumulated in Dayton. Much has already be learned in El Paso. Law enforcement was very rapid in both instances. Updates will be given throughout the day!"
Rih took to social media and said to Trump, "Um… Donald, you spelt ‘terrorism' wrong! Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead. This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to LEGALLY purchase an assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving 6 more people dead including a young infant baby boy! Imagine a world where it's easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA! Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!!"
She also shared condolences for the victims, saying, "My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims from Texas, California, and Ohio! I'm so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!"
Cardi B also said via Twitter, "We have enough information already! Both of the shooters are white supremacist terrorist with intentions to kill minority's. Law enforcement took rapid action but what are YOU going to do to control some of your RACIST SUPPORTERS?"
