” As President Trump headed to El Paso on Wednesday and the grieving communities held vigils to mourn the dead, Andre’s older bro and daddy were back at work in the family’s car shop, finding out how to continue,” NPR reported.
On Wednesday, NPR teased the function on Tito Anchondo that was published on Thursday.
” And I got to say, Rachel, his presence here in El Paso is questionable,” Greene said toEarly Morning Editionhost Rachel Martin. “There are some in the city who simply do not think Trump must come, which includes Democratic Congresswoman Veronica Escobar, who represents this area. She was speaking with MSNBC.”
NPR then played a sound byte from Escobar claiming that Trump stated Americans must be afraid of Latinos.
However Greene claimed he was unwilling to talk politics with individuals who had lost liked ones.
They interviewed Tito at his father’s car body shop where they were both working.
” And Rachel, you comprehend this,” Greene said. “I entered into this discussion thinking I wasn’t going to bring up politics with this family at all.”
” It just felt insensitive,” Greene stated. “However then Tito, pretty early on, told me that he’s really happy that President Trump is coming here.
” How come?” Martin asked.
” Well, I indicate, he stated his late bro supported the president,” stated Greene, who then called Trump a racist.
” He stated he supports the president, but that he’s truly grappled a lot with a few of the racist things that President Trump has actually stated,” Greene said. “And he’s wanting to get some face time with the president to challenge him on some of that.”
” Though the president has actually been fulfilled by protesters, a few of whom think he assisted incite the violence in El Paso with his language about immigrants, Tito sees it in a different way,” NPR reported.
On Wednesday, President Trump visited El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, to consult with survivors of the weekend massacres. Though the president has actually been fulfilled by protesters, a few of whom think he assisted incite the violence in El Paso with his language about immigrants, Tito sees it differently.
” I can see why individuals would think that,” Tito states. “And yes, maybe he stated things in bad taste. However I believe people are misinterpreting President Trump’s ideas.”
Tito Anchondo says his household has actually constantly been Republican conservatives. “My bro was very helpful of Trump,” he stated, adding that he wishes to take a seat with the president and inform him about their pain.
” I wish to see his reaction face to face,” Tito said in the NPR report. “I wish to see if he’s real and see if my political views are best or incorrect. And see if he feels possibly some type of remorse for declarations that he’s made.”
” I simply want to have a human-to-human talk with him and see how he feels,” Tito said.
