Those accusing the GOP of supporting racism in the wake of the Buffalo mass shooting are “trying to promote their own political agenda,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) has said.
Scalise was joined by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in flatly rejecting accusations by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), and Democrats who alleged the GOP supports “white nationalism,” The Hill reported.
“We’ve been very vocal against white nationalism,” Scalise told reporters on Monday.
Ten people were killed, while three others were wounded when suspected gunman 18-year-old Payton Gendron went on a shooting rampage in a Tops Friendly Market on Saturday. Eleven of the people shot were black.
