Two minority, female Trump supporters and their small children reportedly needed a police escort after being surrounded by agitated “protesters” in El Paso, Texas on Wednesday.
The two moms — one Latina and the other a black Trump supporter — were surrounded while chanting “We love Trump!” during what’s being reported by some as an anti-Trump protest and others as a vigil for victims of the horrific shooting.
The events unfolded during President Trump’s visit to El Paso to pay his respects to the victims, their families, and first responders.
CNN reporter Gabe Ramirez tweeted: “Two Trump supporters with kids in tow, came to the Walmart memorial and began yelling “We love Trump” causing the crowd to yell at them to leave. They were escorted out by EPPD [El Paso Police Department] before things got out of hand.”
Ramirez added: “A man has set up a PA at El Paso Walmart for anybody to use to address the crowd. Most were using it to talk about their feelings around the tragedy or for prayers and moral support. These two used it to talk about how unfairly Trump was being treated and it caused a small ruckus.”

Here’s the scene from another angle:

Photojournalist Nathan Fish posted a separate Twitter video showing another angry mob surrounding what appears to be a female Latina Trump supporter in a MAGA hat.
One of the protesters held up a sign that read: “TRUMP NOT WELCOME.”
While the leftists challenged her, the lady Trump supporter calmly replied: “I love you. I love you. I love you.”

Twitter reacted by expressing their disgust at the leftist mob mentality and apparent attempts to silence the two female minority Trump supporters.
One man remarked: “First Amendment. They can say whatever they want like this. This is America.”
Even CNN reporter Gabe Ramirez agreed.
Ramirez tweeted: “Indeed. The police just trying to keep the peace because the majority of the crowd was getting pretty upset.”

Another Twitter user warned that today’s hateful Left doesn’t care if you’re white or black. As long as you’re a Trump supporter, you have a target on your back.
The man tweeted: “Be safe out there, friends. The Democrats and their hooligans don’t care who they hurt, be it Black, Hispanic, White, Asians or Native Americans, They don’t care.”

As BizPac Review reported, hordes of angry Democratic lawmakers like Beto O’Rourke and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez blamed President Trump for the El Paso shooting by a right-wing thug.
Naturally, the left didn’t blame itself for the Dayton, Ohio shooting by a left-wing thug, who was a supporter of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and AOC.
Heavy(.)com found the Twitter account of the alleged Dayton attacker
His account promoted:
-Strong anti-ICE rhetoric
-He called the terrorist who attacked the ICE facility in Tacoma a "martyr"

The media seized on El Paso shooter Patrick Crusius’ alleged “Manifesto” to paint him as a racist inspired by Trump. However, they ignore that Crusius said he was not inspired by Trump:
“My ideology has not changed for several years. My opinions on automation, immigration, and the rest predate Trump and his campaign for president. I’m putting this here because some people will blame the President for the attack. This is not the case.”
