Donald Trump Jr. blames the Texas school shooter and his mother for the rampage that left 19 children and two teachers dead and says Salvador Ramos would have killed people anyway with a different weapon if he couldn’t get a gun.
Trump, the 44-year-old son of the former U.S. president, said Ramos would have used a “bat or a bomb or some sort of improvised device or a machete,” if he couldn’t get an AR-15.
Speaking on the social media platform Rumble, Trump took issue with comments by Ramos’ mother Adriana Reyes, who said after the killings: “He had his reasons for doing what he did and please don’t judge him.”
This left Trump Jr. incredulous.
“He has reasons for killing 19 fourth graders? He had his reasons? Maybe you’re the reason,” he said.
“We’re not supposed to judge this piece of c— who shot and killed 19 kids, he had his reasons, right? Screw you.
“This is so much of the problem in our society, there’s always an excuse, there’s no accountability ever,” Trump said.
Trump then said guns were blamed for everything, not the people wielding them.

“It’s the gun, it’s not the sociopath wielding it, folks. If it wasn’t for the gun, this kid would be a well-adjusted, reasonable individual, he’d be a wonderful human being, right?”
“He wouldn’t have done the exact same thing with a bat or a bomb or some sort of improvised device or a machete, ‘he’s a great kid, don’t judge him’.”
Trump continued,”We pretend that everything is great and fine because we can’t acknowledge anymore that people are screwed up.
“We can’t acknowledge what the actual causes are, it’s not a drug-addict mother and a missing father and a lack of religion, indoctrination programs in our schools, crazy teachers teaching some of the crap I’ve talking about in these videos. It’s none of those things. It never ends, man.
“It’s obviously not the total lack of any discipline, patience, perseverance. That’s just gone from society, it has nothing to do with that. It’s none of those things.”
He wasn’t done.
“They’ll blame it on the guns, they’ll blame it on everything because no one can possibly take responsibility for their actions. No one can admit somebody is actually a piece of garbage and screwed up. We can’t have that, that would be mean!”
