The sister of a couple who was killed during the El Paso mass-shooting last weekend has blasted Democratic politicians for politicizing the tragedy, calling them “pure evil” for blaming President Donald Trump for the attack. Vibora (Deborah) Anchondo, whose brother and his wife were among the 22 people killed, says Democrats who are attempting to block President Trump from visiting the Texas city are “monsters” for “using the tragic event to push their political agenda.” Jordan and Andre Anchondo died shielding their infant son from gunfire inside the El Paso Walmart where the gunman opened fire last Saturday. Supporters have set up a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to care for the couple’s three orphaned children. Trump is visiting both El Paso and Dayton, Ohio on Wednesday, in the wake of tragic shootings in both cities. During his visit, the president wishes to pass on condolences to those affected and give praise to the first responders.
In her post, she tells of the “pure evil” Democratic politicians who have repeatedly told the media that Trump is not welcome in the community to eschew politics not to transform a tragic event “into a political issue.” “It’s such a shame that two of our local politicians (I refuse to say their names as they don’t deserve it) are saying that our President is not welcome on Wednesday,” Anchondo wrote on Facebook.
“I cannot believe how these monsters are using the tragic event to push their political agenda.”
