“We thank President Donald Trump and our First Lady, Melania for coming to Texas today to show his support for those affected by the horrible mass shootings that occurred on Saturday in El Paso. During his visit, he also showed his support for our first responders and hospital staff who stepped up during this difficult time. As we begin to embrace healing, it’s important that we unite, rather than divide,” said Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey.

“I want to thank President Trump and our state’s leaders for coming to our community to help us heal. El Paso is strong and resilient and we will endure this tragedy by coming together. The outpouring of support from around the state and nation is being felt and we are grateful,” said El Paso Republican Party Chairman Adolpho Telles.
