Trump to visit to El Paso, Texas Wednesday: mayor

"This is the Office of the Mayor of El Paso in an official capacity, welcoming the Office of the President of the United States, which I consider is my formal duty," Mayor Margo, a Republican, told reporters.

Margo and Trump clashed earlier this year after the El Paso mayor said a border fence had not helped reduce crime in the city.

Trump responded by saying Mayor Margo was "full of crap." Trump read a statement at the White House on Monday saying that Americans "must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy." He blamed the internet and violent video games for fostering violence after a shooting in El Paso over the weekend left 22 people dead.
