Democrat presidential candidate, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, spoke with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Monday where he claimed President Trump’s “open racism is an invitation to violence” and compared the President to the “Third Reich”, blaming the Commander in Chief’s rhetoric for the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

Bill O’Reilly took to Twitter and pushed back at O’Rourke’s comments, suggesting that the former Texas Congressman’s presidential run is over after “using a catastrophe for political advantage.”

Robert O’Rourke criticized President Trump’s, suggesting that Trump has openly said that “all people of one religion” are “inherently defective and should be banned from the shores of this country.”

“The President has not been shy, he has not been saying this behind closed doors, this is out in the open,” O’Rouke said. “All people of one religion inherently defective should be banned from the shores of this country. The only modern western democracy that I can think of that said anything close to this is the Third Reich, Nazi Germany. Talking about human beings as though they are animals, making them subhuman to make it OK to put their kids in cages.”

“We’ve lost seven children in our custody just over the last year in this, the wealthiest, the most powerful country on the face of the planet,” he continued. “Saying he wants more immigrants like those from Nordic countries, the whitest places on the face of the planet. This President, his open racism is also an invitation to violence. We’ve seen a rise in hate crimes, every single one of the last three years.”

“The writing has been on the wall since his maiden speech coming down that escalator, describing Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals. The actions that follow cannot surprise us. Anyone who is surprised is part of this problem right now, including members of the media who ask ‘Hey Beto, do you think the president is racist?’ Well Jesus Christ, of course, he’s racist. He’s been racist since day one, before day one when he was questioning whether [former President] Obama was born in the United States,” O’Rourke said. (Continued Below)

On Sunday, O’Rourke also claimed in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper that Trump’s “racist rhetoric” was in part to blame for the mass shooting, and he believes President Trump is a “white nationalist.”

Bill O’ Reilly pushed back at O’Rourke on Monday and wrote on Twitter, “It is beyond revolting that Beto O’Rourke immediately blamed President Trump for the weekend murders.”

“O’Rourke is pretty much finished after looking foolish during the presidential debates, and now he’s using a catastrophe for political advantage. Low doesn’t even come close,” O’Reilly expressed. (Continued Below)
