US President Joe Biden will visit Texas tomorrow after the massacre that left at least 19 children and two teachers killed in a mass shooting at a Texas elementary school on Tuesday, Reuters reported.
Biden declared their deaths as senseless and demanded action to try to curb the violence, according to Bloomberg.
“I hoped, when I became president, I would not have to do this again,” Biden said at the White House, in sometimes halting, emotional remarks. “Another massacre in Uvalde, Texas. An elementary school. Beautiful, innocent second, third and fourth graders.”
“As a nation,” he said, “we have to ask: When are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When are we going to do what we know in our gut needs to be done?”
