1:03 am
helping people heal. >> he's the president of the united states, and as he has an official capacity as president, you know an official capacity of mayor, i will greet him here. look, i know that, you know, he's made this bed and he's got to lie in it, you know. he hasn't -- his rhetoric has been painful for many in our community, and i think the people should stand up and say they're not happy if they're not happy that he's coming. >> in el paso, the mayor has already made clear he's welcoming the president because that's his job. el paso's representative in congress, veronica escobar, outright declined an invitation to join the president on this visit. >> the words that have dehumanized us are still hanging over us. >> reporter: you need to hear this president apologize -- >> yes. >> reporter: for the things he's said? >> and to acknowledge that they were wrong and to take them back. >> reporter: if he doesn't? >> as far as i'm concerned, he should not be here until he does
1:04 am
that. >> escobar says she refuses to be what she calls an accessory to trump's visit. on the dayton attack, new information and exclusive new video this morning. cnn has obtained security camera footage from a bar where the gunman spent more than an hour before the attack began. as you can see, 24-year-old connor betts, he blends right in, dressed in a t-shirt, shorts, and sneakers. the tactical vest and mask that he wears later nowhere to be seen here. he walks into blind bob's bar. he's carded, gets a wristband, and waits for his sister and a friend identified as charles beard. he speaks with staff and leaves. his sister and beard remain another 45 minutes or so. police say there was some communication between the two during that time, but there's nothing in this video, no visible arguing, no disturbance that gives any indication of what led to the rampage that came less than an hour later. megan betts was killed along with eight others.
1:05 am
beard was seriously wounded. cnn has more from dayton on the president's visit today and the investigation. >> reporter: we know the president and first lady are expected to be here on the ground later this morning dayton, ohio. i talked to first responders, they're also expected to meet with people in this community who are still grieving over the fact that they lost nine lives here and others injured in that horrible attack over the weekend. we're also learning at this time more about the investigation. the fbi is now involved, specifically because there has been some that's come to light about the violent idealogies that the gunman sort was researching, looking into, before this attack. now the fbi is part of this investigation. we know from their investigation that connor betts was obsessed with mass shootings. he would research them. he even talked about a wanting, a desire to carry out one himself. >> we have found very specific
1:06 am
violent ideologies that the shooter we know followed and was interested in. this individual, the shooter, the attacker in this case, very specifically seeking out information that promotes violence. we are going back as far as we need to try to find out why he did this and also if anybody else knew about this or was involved with this. >> reporter: parts of this are still sort of coming together, but still a lot of questions. three of the major questions i want to point out that investigators are still trying to answer, one is that what more about the idealogy that might have influenced connor betts. the second one is who if anyone knew about his intention to carry out that rampage. and number three, again, is the motive. what made him do this? these are questions investigators will be on the ground looking through digital evidence, looking through video trying to get some answers to. >> thank you so much for that. a woman who claims she dated the dayton gunman said he was
1:07 am
fascinated by mass shootings and things that made terrible people do terrible things. delia johnson says she met the shooter in college and they bonded over what she calls depression humor. >> he showed me the one video of the mass shooting on our first date. i'm not sure which shooting it was. i was drunk, and it was at a loud bar. so -- >> reporter: he played that -- >> i think it's weird, but it wasn't like -- it wasn't a red flag. which i know is weird to a lot of people, but given the context of him being a psychology student and him being fascinated in the psychology of those things, that's what made it digestible. >> johnson says her relationship with the gunman consisted mostly of drinking and talking about mental illness and world tragedies. the latest now on the el paso massacre. the family of accused gunman patrick crusius says outside influences drove their son to open fire at a crowded walmart killing 22. they released this statement, quote, patrick's actions were
1:08 am
apparently influenced and informed by people we do not know. and from ideas and beliefs we do not accept or condone in any way. they say he was raised in a family that taught love, kindness, respect, and tolerance, rejecting all forms of racism, prejudice, hatred, and violence. there will never be a moment for rest of our lives when we will forget each and every victim of this senseless tragedy. cnn's ed lavandera is in el paso where president trump is expected later today. >> reporter: since saturday's massacre of 22 people in el paso, this is a city that's been grappling, coming to terms with what has happened, especially given that the motivation for this attack was from a white supremacist wanting to carry out and inflict pain on the hispanic community. the racist motivations for the attack is something they are dealing with. many of the people we've spoken with in el paso say that one of the things they tax great comfort in is that it wasn't one
1:09 am
of their own that did this, that that feeling and the spirit of the el paso community wasn't shattered in this, that it was someone from the outside who came to inflict this kind of pain. but it has in the words of some of the people we talked to cast an eerie feeling over the city. did you feel protected here from racism? >> yeah because i know that we are a lot of hispanics here. we are always like a big community. >> reporter: you never had to face that? >> no. i mean, people here are very supportive. very nice. and to have that coming here is like -- i don't know. >> it's hitting hard. hitting home. >> reporter: some of the people we talked to say that overt racism like this attacker brought here to the city isn't something that they normally deal with. they're used to living in a place where the far majority of everyone is hispanic, and they're used to that kind of community. so seeing that kind of hatred up close has been shocking and stunning for many of the people we talk to.
1:10 am
christine and will? >> all right. thank you so much for that. the 19-year-old gunman who used an assault-style rifle to kill three at the gilroy garlic festival in california, that was just last week. >> unbelievable. >> he had a target list, according to police. it contained religious institutions and political groups of both parties, as well as federal buildings and courthouses. the fbi is opening a domestic terrorist investigation into the shooting. investigators say they have not come to a conclusion about the gunman's motives because he was exploring competing violent ideologies. >> gilroy, el paso, dayton. in the wake of all these mass shootings, understandably nerves are rattled. panic broke out in two public places with no shots fired. times square, a backfiring motorcycle sent hundreds scrambling for cover thinking it was gunfire. the nypd pleaded, please don't panic, times square is very
1:11 am
safe. in baton rouge, there was a mad scramble for the exits at a walmart. >> what's going on, man? >> there's somebody shooting -- they're shooting -- >> where? >> in the store. >> walmart, burbank, yes. >> they're shooting in write? the. >> yes. >> no one was shooting. the chaos began with a dispute between two men. one of them grabbed a pair of scissors. when the other displayed his licensed handgun, that set off a noisy stampede. understandably, people mistook it for gunfire. senate republicans are scrambling to come up with a response to the mass shootings in el paso and will dayton. >> do your job! do your job! >> protesters gathering on capitol hill demanding tougher gun safety laws and calling on gop senators to "do your job." last night a small group of demonstrators gathered outside of mitch mcconnell's office in louisville. they want the majority leader to allow a vote on gun violence measures that have already passed the house, and they're not alone. according to a new "usa today" poll, 67% of americans want the

1:13 am
backing down from his agreement stance tweeting massive amounts of money from china and other parts of the world is pouring into the united states for reasons of safety, investment, and interest rates. we are in a very strong position. curiously he wants lower interest rates which wouldn't necessarily attract a lot -- >> right. >> china isn't backing down either. the "wall street journal" reports that policy advisers in beijing believe it can wait for the tariffs to damage the u.s. economy, to force president trump into making concessions. >> they don't have an election to worry about. xi jinping effectively can be president for life. they can think in decades' long increments and know that president trump has two, maybe six years later. >> interesting because the president's supporters inside the white house say the president is also thinking long term. that he's finally doing something that other presidents have been too afraid of the election cycle to do, which is to get tough on china. although many would argue that the tariff strategy -- >> failing miserably now. you have potential to cause a global recession. police officers on horseback and a suspect in handcuffs. and this picture that has the
