Trump on shooting

Shortly before the school day ended on Valentine's Day, a shooter opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Over the course of nearly two hours, police quickly rushed to the scene in an attempt to get the situation under control after dozens of injuries were reported included multiple fatalities. As of press time, the suspect has reportedly been taken into custody.

In response to the mass shooting, Donald Trump took to Twitter to send out a pair of messages. "My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting," Trump tweeted, while adding, "No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school."

In a follow up message, the commander in chief gave an update about his conversation with Florida Gov.

Rick Scott. "Just spoke to Governor Rick Scott," Trump wrote, while concluding, "We are working closely with law enforcement on the terrible Florida school shooting." Within minutes of the president's posts on social media, those who oppose the administration made sure to give their thoughts, which quickly pushed back against the rhetoric coming from the White House.

Twitter backlash

Following Donald Trump's tweets, critics of the president wasted no time firing back. "You could care less about these children, you and the republicans refuse to address gun control changes. How many children must die?" on Twitter user wondered.

"Then make it frigging harder to get a gun," a tweet read.

"Tell that to the NRA, responsible gun ownership must be the fight," yet another tweet noted. "Really at a time like this and you post this! Estas pendeja! Grow up," an additional post went on to add.

"How about some GUN CONTROL legislation. You can't keep ignoring this like it doesn't happen," a Twitter user wrote. "Then do something about gun laws Mr.

McCheesy Pants," a follow-up tweet stated. "Those thoughts and prayers sure are working well. I’m guessing it’s still too early to talk about gun control though?" a sarcastic tweet noted. The backlash to Donald Trump's tweets continued as it was clear that many Americans are fed up with the way the president and his administration have handled the issue of gun violence and gun control in the United States.
