Two mass shootings that killed 29 people in less than 24 hours in the United States has prompted debate over whether President Donald Trump’s rhetoric was partly to blame for the surging gun violence.
The first assault occurred on Saturday in the border city of El Paso in Texas, killing 20 people.
Across the country, a second gunman opened fire in a central district of Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday, killing nine people.
But the president says his administration is prepared to tackle hate crime.
