Texas Democrat says she declined to join Trump on El Paso visit over lack of 'dialogue'
By Rachel Frazin - 08/06/19 06:24 PM EDT

Texas Rep. Veronica Escobar (D) says she has declined an invitation from President Trump to join him on his visit to El Paso on Wednesday, saying he has so far refused to engage in a "dialogue" with her.

Escobar, whose El Paso-area district was rocked by Saturday's mass shooting that left at least 22 people dead and more than two dozen others injured, explained her decision in a series of tweets on Tuesday.

"I refuse to join without a dialogue about the pain his racist and hateful words & actions have caused our community and country," she wrote, adding that she specifically requested a phone call with the president and was told he was "too busy."

typical a rat scurrying from the truth.
“Here’s the truth. Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”
