Anti-Trump Groups Stick To Resist Tactics Despite Shooting
DENVER (AP) — Liberal groups resistant to Republican policies say they have no plans to change their tactics or approach after a gunman apparently driven by his hatred of President Donald Trump opened fire at a GOP baseball practice.
The shooting grievously injured a Republican congressman and several others.
After the shooting, leaders from both parties called for unity rather than recriminations. Many liberals — most notably former presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders — immediately condemned the attack. A resistance group in the Louisiana district of the injured lawmaker, Rep. Steve Scalise, asked its members to call the congressman's office and wish him a speedy recovery.
But online and on talk radio, several conservatives questioned whether aggressive opposition to all things Trump had created a dangerous climate, and some faulted the left.
