‘No one wants him here’: CNN reporter says El Paso residents almost uniformly want Trump to stay away

Published

CNN reporter Nick Valencia on Wednesday said that he’d found the vast majority of people he’s spoken with in El Paso say they wish President Donald Trump would not come to their city, which is still reeling from a mass shooting over the weekend that left dozens of people dead.

While discussing the president’s visit to the city, Valencia played clips of El Paso residents he interviewed about what they wanted to see from the president — and they all said they didn’t think his visit would do any good.

“Personally, I think that this community is hurting,” El Paso resident Dr. Sylvia Acosta said. “I don’t think he has done anything to help that.”

“I don’t know how he’s going to help,” said Juan Cabrera, the superintendent of the El Paso Independent School District.

Valencia emphasized that he did encounter some Trump supporters during his interviews in the city, but he said that “countless” other residents have told him that he should not come to their city.

“No one wants him here,” said Valencia. “One person I spoke with said they respect the office of the presidency, they respect the president. But they say President Trump has not shown at any point in his presidency to be the healer-in-chief and he’s not welcome here at this time.”

Fox News a threat to American democracy and national security, a CNN contributor explained on Saturday.

Garrett Graff was interviewed by CNN's Ana Cabrera about a new piece he wrote for Wired titled, "Fox News Is Now a Threat to National Security."

"Monday’s split-screen drama, as the House Judiciary Committee weighed impeachment charges against President Trump and as the Justice Department’s inspector general released a 476-page report on the FBI’s handling of its 2016 investigation into Trump’s campaign, made one truth of the modern world inescapable: The lies and obfuscations forwarded ad infinitum on Fox News pose a dangerous threat to the national security of the United States," he wrote.
