[See NewsBusters for more.] Despite the fact that Atlanta police have still refused to say race played a factor in Tuesday's mass shooting, CNN Newsroom hosts Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow, along with Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, still blamed Republicans like former President Trump for the shooting on Thursday and wondered if the country has moved beyond things such as World War II internment camps.

Early on during the segment, Tong declared, "I lay the blame at the feet of politicians like President Trump when he started his war on American immigrants, that was really bad, it started to get bad, but when he blamed Asia Pacific-Americans, including Chinese-Americans for the coronavirus and called it the China Virus or the Kung Flu, that made all of us unsafe. And this is what happens."
