US President Donald Trump is going to visit Dayton, Ohio, El Paso Wednesday to offer a condolence to the victims of the terrible mass shooting.

Trump took to his Twitter account to inform about his visit and meetings with First Responders, Law Enforcement and some of the victims.

However, there are chances that he could face protests in Dayton, Ohio as people of the two cities hold him responsible for the attack.

“The president should stay away, saying flatly that Trump “has no place here,” Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic presidential 2020 contender, El Paso native and former congressman said.

He has been accused of inciting white supremacists and sowing division which will be considering the role of consoler-in-chief.

Trump criticized white nationalism and called for more action to address mental illness and to fight online hate, but endorsed only least new gun control measures.

“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America,” Trump said in his speech Monday in the White House Diplomatic Room.

At least 31 people were killed over the last weekend in mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

Two gunmen shot and killed at least 22 people in an El Paso Walmart on last Saturday and another nine people were killed in a shooting in the Oregon District of Dayton, Ohio.
