It looks like some Texans are not going to be giving Obama a very warm welcome in Dallas, Texas. If you live in Texas, are you going to want him in your neighborhood after the racially motivated attack on 5 police officers?
President Barack Obama’s decision to cut short his European trip to visit Dallas, where five police officers were killed Thursday night, failed to provide the positive reaction for which the president might have hoped.
“He’ll just continue to divide on racial grounds,”John S. Roberts wrote on Young Conservatives.
Many voices on Twitter agreed that Obama’s visit was too little too late.
Although Obama condemned the deadly Dallas ambush, more than one commentator said Obama is part of the problem, not the solution.
@AP we dont want him here
