Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke has no questions about what led to this past weekend's mass shootings.
And in two Monday morning show appearances, he definitely didn't backtrack.
O'Rourke first appeared on ABC News' This Week, where White House correspondent Jon Karl asked if O'Rourke was saying Trump "bears responsibility for what we just saw in El Paso."
Are you suggesting that he bears responsibility for what we just saw in El Paso?".

O'Rourke got even more heated during his Morning Joe spot, comparing Trump's rhetoric surrounding Mexicans and Muslims to "the Third Reich" of "Nazi Germany."
He then described how fed up he was with questions of whether Trump is racist. »
