El Paso Mayor Says Trump Insulted Him

Florida News

The Republican mayor of El Paso, Texas, said that President Donald Trump mocked him as a fake Republican last week during his visit to the border city following a deadly mass shooting there. 

Dee Margo told PBS’ “Frontline” in an interview – excerpts of which were published Wednesday – that Trump called him a RINO, a derisive moniker meaning “Republican in Name Only,” when the two met after the president visited hospital staff and shooting survivors.

The shooting, which targeted Latino immigrants, left 22 people dead and dozens injured earlier this month.
