US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to condemn the El Paso Walmart mass shooting.  He said that the shooting in El Paso, Texas was not only tragic, it was an act of cowardice.  Last week at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, which is a food festival in California a similar shooting like this took place. 3 people died and 13 were injured.
