During a visit to the El Paso hospital treating victims of Saturday's mass shooting, President Donald Trump praised medical staff for their response to the shooting and said "they're talking about you all over the world".

Mr Trump and his wife Melania were met at the El Paso airport by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and El Paso mayor Dee Margo before being driven away.

But Escobar said that the White House told her Trump was "too busy" to talk, so she turned down their invitation so as not to be "an accessory to his visit".

He also met with law enforcement and hospital staff.

A motorcycle backfiring on Tuesday night in New York's Times Square sent crowds running for fear of another gun attack - a sign of higher tensions after the shootings. He said Trump pledged to "get things done", but did not offer specifics.

The president earlier on Wednesday noted that the alleged Dayton shooter was a self-described socialist and "leftist" who supported Antifa in addition to Warren and Sen.

Dayton's emotions are still raw in the aftermath of the early-morning shooting rampage that left 10 dead, including the gunman, in the city's popular OR entertainment district.

The suspected gunman in the El Paso shooting allegedly wrote a hate-filled manifesto with language that mirrored much of the language Donald Trump has previously used publicly, specifically about hispanics. The White House did not ultimately set up a visit to Del Sol. He also defended his rhetoric on issues including immigration, claiming instead that he "brings people together".

President Donald Trump: "We had an incredible day". "Don't tell it to the press because they won't even believe it".

"That was some crowd", Trump bragged. "I guess he forgot what he said".

With their parents detained, children had to spend the night in the care of other family members, friends, and in some cases strangers, with churches, gyms, and other businesses opening their doors to offer assistance.

"No-one's words would have triggered that".

In both cities, crowds of protesters gathered to confront Trump and condemn his visit.

President Trump told Army hero Glendon Oakley, who rescued multiple children during the El Paso mass shooting, "You could be a movie star, the way you look".

He also took a swipe at former El Paso Congressman Beto O'Rourke, saying "he had like 400 people in a parking lot", at a counter-rally.

Frantic scenes were earlier captured in New York's Times Square after the noise of a motorcycle backfiring caused a crowd to panic, revealing a heightened sense of fear in the wake of mass shootings in two U.S. cities. The call was taken as "informational" in nature.

"Please don't panic. The Times Square area is very safe!"
"Motorcycles backfiring while passing through sounded like gun shots", it tweeted.
