Blog: President Trump addresses the nation on 29 killed in two mass shootings; “Hate has no place in America”

Trump, who will make remarks later Monday, tweeted about the weekend shootings in Texas and Ohio that left 29 dead and dozens wounded. He said: “We can never forget them, and those many who came before them.”
