Conservative commentator and Blexit leader Candice Owens blasted Democrat presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke for blaming President Donald Trump for Saturday’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.

Owens replied on Twitter Sunday to a video of O’Rourke tweeted by MSNBC Producer Kyle Griffin, in which O’Rourke accused Trump of “encouraging” mass shootings like the one in Texas.

In her response, Owens said that the suspect in Sunday’s mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio was a self-described socialist and fan of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) – but, no one should be blaming Warren or anyone other than the shooter for the tragedy:

“The Ohio shooter was a self-described socialist and Elizabeth Warren fan. Do we blame @AOC and her squad?

“No-we do not. We don’t blame anyone but the shooter.

“@BetoORourke you are a coward for blaming Trump supporters for El Paso. Rest assure, you will never be President.”

“Beto O'Rourke on the El Paso mass shooting: ‘We've got to acknowledge the hatred, the open racism that we're seeing. There is an environment of it … We see it from our commander-in-chief. He is encouraging this. He doesn't just tolerate it, he encourages it.’"

Owens' Blexit movement seeks to bring conservative values to America's inner cities.
