Trump on the Shooting



President Trump suggested Thursday that mental illness led a twice-orphaned 19-year-old to unleash a murderous attack with an assault rifle that left 17 people dead at a Florida high school.

“So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled from school for bad and erratic behavior,” the president tweeted.  If you find this information interesting and helpful please do not forget to follow me for the latest trends and passive earning strategies.

“Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!” he added.

After the attack Wednesday afternoon, Trump offered his “prayers and condolences to the families of the victims.”

“No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school,” he tweeted.

Trump’s tweet Thursday was not the first time he pointed a finger at mental illness in connection with a mass shooting.

In November, he described a deadly shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, as a “mental health problem at the highest level” – not a “guns situation.”

In that case, 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley killed 26 people and injured 20 others before being shot dead by a civilian.

The gunman had been prohibited from purchasing or possessing guns because of a domestic violence conviction in a court-martial while in the US Air Force.

Trump also raised the same argument after the Las Vegas shooting in October in which 64-year-old Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injured more than 850 by firing at concertgoers at a music festival.

During a visit with first responders after the massacre, Trump questioned the shooter’s mental capacity, saying he was a “sick, demented man” whose “wires are screwed up.”

Trump also told reporters repeatedly that it was not the right time to talk about gun control.
