Trump on Vegas shooting

In what has now been confirmed as the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States, hundreds of shots were fired into a large crowd of people attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. The festival was completing its third and final night, taking place at Mandalay Bay at the south end of the Vegas strip on Sunday night.

Hundreds of rounds were unloaded, causing chaos in the process, as on-the-ground videos were quickly uploaded to the internet and went viral throughout social media. Shortly after 10:30 p.m. local time, police were forced to shut down part of the Las Vegas BLVD, as they rushed to the scene. As of press time, 50 fatalities have since been reported, with more than 400 left injured as a result of the incident. According to the most recent reports, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada has been identified as the shooter. Poker player Dan Bilzerian was in the area at the time of the shooting and reported via his Instagram story what he saw first hand. "Holy fu*k, this girl just got shot in the fu**ing head," Bilzerian said, as he explained the horror of what had gone down around him just minutes before.

Not long after Donald Trump sent out his tweet, critics of the president lashed out on social media, with many pushing back due to the fact that the shooter was a white male.

"My guess is that we see more tweets by Trump talking about NFL players kneeling than we do about this TERRORIST attack today!" Ed Krassenstein tweeted out.

"Do you condemn white male domestic terrorists?" another tweet added.

"Now what are you going to do about gun laws?" Emma Kennedy replied.

"Have you noticed that this was a white male, not a Muslim?" an additional tweet pointed out in reference to the shooter's race. "The worst mass shooting in the history of America and because a WHITE male who’s not a Muslim is responsible you can’t call it TERRORISM!" Bishop Talbert Swan added. As the backlash continued to pour in, critics of Donald Trump were not holding back in offering their thoughts.
