Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke has no questions about what led to this past weekend's mass shootings.

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."

Beto O'Rourke: "I am, because he does ... he doesn't just tolerate, he encourages the kind of open racism" — This Week (@ThisWeekABC) August 5, 2019.

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. »
