US mass shootings: Trump responds to criticism over his behaviour

In the wake of the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso last weekend, President Trump spoke of the need for unity.

But his visits to both cities to meet victims and medical staff has done little to bring people together.

Criticism of his past behaviour and protests on the ground have provoked a new stream of tweeted invective from Mr Trump who says he was received warmly by those he came to comfort – survivors and medical staff.
