Rihanna Wants President Trump to Define This Weekend’s Mass Shootings As ‘Terrorist Attacks’

Over the past 24 hours, two mass shootings have occurred in different parts of the country: On Saturday morning, 20 people were killed by a possibly racism-motivated gunman at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, and on Sunday morning, nine people were killed in a separate attack at a bar in Dayton, Ohio. Rihanna, who’s been very critical about President Trump and his policies in the past, is particularly incensed that Trump has defined the El Paso shooting as an “act of cowardice” — and she let that anger be known on social media on Sunday morning. “Um, Donald, you spelt ‘terrorism’ wrong! Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead,” she wrote on Instagram. “This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to LEGALLY purchase an assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving 6 more people dead including a young infant baby boy!” She added:

Imagine a world where it’s easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA! Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!! My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!

In addition to criticizing President Trump for his response to the devastating Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico back in 2017, Rihanna has also sent Trump multiple cease and desist letters to stop playing her music while touring the country with his rallies. Yes, she did want the music stopped!
