After the act of domestic terrorism in El Paso, Texas where 22 people were murdered and over two dozen more were injured, many people looked at the motives of the White nationalist shooter. But few major news network personalities echoed the killer's words as Jeanine Pirro has in a recent radio interview.

Pirro made an appearance on Fox News Radio's conservative program The Todd Starnes Show to push her latest book and floated the "Great Replacement theory" often touted as justification for violence and acts of terrorism by White nationalists—including the El Paso domestic terrorist.

Pundits, political rivals and allies have warned of the dangers of the rhetoric and targeted attacks of President Donald Trump on Twitter and during his MAGA rallies. Yet Trump continues to refuse to accept any responsibility for bomb threats, violence and acts of domestic terrorism that mimic the President's own rhetoric from MAGA rallies and his Twitter feed.

But have any violent perpetrators specifically mentioned Trump as inspiration beyond mimicking his White nationalism, racist or xenophobic rhetoric? Is Trump inciting violence?

When President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas on Wednesday, the press was told to stay behind on Air Force One because the trip was all about the victims, not a photo op. Since then, slickly produced videos complete with rousing soundtracks and many photos of the POTUS and FLOTUS all taken by official Trump photographers have been shared by the President, his administration, the White House account and FLOTUS to the outrage of many.

One of the photos from El Paso is drawing particular ire.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump visited the cities of Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. The two cities saw devastating mass shooting attacks over the weekend while President Trump was out of Washington DC at his New Jersey golf resort.

The press corps that travels with the President on Air Force One was told—first in Dayton then again in El Paso—there was no reason for them to leave the plane as the visits were to be completely about the victims and not a photo op for the POTUS and FLOTUS. But shortly after each visit, professional photos and video taken, edited and produced with accompanying music were posted to Twitter by Trump, the White House Twitter account and members of the Trump administration, one of whom described the visit to victims of gun violence as the President being treated "like a rock star."

Democrat Joaquin Castro, born and raised in San Antonio, currently serves as the Representative of Texas' 20th congressional district. On Monday, Representative Castro shared a meme featuring publicly available information on 44 donors who maxed out their campaign contributions for President Donald Trump.

After an act of domestic terrorism by a White nationalist who shared the same talking points made popular in President Trump's Twitter feed and during his MAGA rallies and 2016 presidential campaign, Castro decided to share who supports and enables such rhetoric. The White nationalist terrorist targeted Hispanics and murdered 22 people and injured dozens more.
