NY Daily News gets it right the first time:

“Empty Words:


Trump calls for 'love,’ unity and bipartisanship to prevent more mass shootings, but keeps pushing NRA talking points

President Trump pledged Monday to “act with urgent resolve” against the scourge of gun violence in the wake of mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, but offered few details on how he plans to do so and kept pushing gun lobby talking points.

Blaming mental illness and video games but not the sweeping availability of military-grade weapons, Trump delivered the limp promises in a national address from the White House, as the death toll rose to 31 from the weekend massacres in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

"These barbaric slaughters are an assault upon our communities, an attack upon our nation and a crime against all of humanity,” Trump said. “We vow to act with urgent resolve.”

In the address, Trump also offered a forceful condemnation of “racism, bigotry and white supremacy," as authorities said the suspect in Saturday’s El Paso shooting had likely posted a racist manifesto online decrying the “Hispanic invasion of Texas" before the senseless assault.

But the president offered no acknowledgement that the suspected gunman’s alleged screed directly mirrored some of his own anti-immigrant rhetoric.”
