The family of the young couple who died protecting their baby from the El Paso gunman say they have received death threats after they met with Donald Trump.

The family of the young couple who died protecting their baby from the El Paso gunman say they have received death threats after they met with Donald Trump.

A picture of the president went viral in the wake of the mass shooting at the Walmart after it showed first lady Melania holding little Paul Anchondo as POTUS smiled and gave a thumbs up.

Among the family members in the photo was the baby's uncle, Tito Anchondo, a Trump supporter who said he had received death threats.

'We should be coming together as a country at this time instead of threatening each other with hate messages,' he said.

Anchondo said on Friday that Trump 'was just there to give his condolences and he was just being a human being'.

He added: 'Is it that hard to try and understand that a family is trying to not be sad at a moment like this? We're trying to be as strong as we can. My brother is gone.'

He previously told NPR that he and his brother were Trump supporters.
