Trump Visits Flordia gun laws

President Donald Trump wouldn’t discuss gun laws in Florida today when he and First Lady Melania visited the hospital where victims of the high school massacre were taken, and some are still being treated.

Trump was ask by  reporters at Broward Health North Hospital if he had that he met with victims?  He’s reply was  ‘Yes I did, yes I did, I did indeed and it’s very sad that something like this happened,’ before continuing to praise hospital staff and first responders.

He refused to answer a reporter who followed up with ‘Mr. President, do gun laws need to be changed?’ He gave no response.

Before the hospital stop, the president and Melania also addressed first responders at the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

The day after Nikolas Cruz shot and killed 17 in a Florida high school shooting, injuring many more, Donald Trump delivered an address to the nation. In line with his remarks following last year’s mass shooting in Las Vegas, the president didn’t much mention gun violence or gun laws and or control—in fact, he didn’t use the word “gun” at all. Trump blamed the tragedy on mental health, although he himself signed last year’s bill to relax vetting of mentally unstable gun purchasers.

Trump’s speech also lacked an essential ingredient: facts. There was no mention of the United States’ extraordinarily high number of gun-related deaths compared to other nations, nor any statistics on the epidemic of US school shootings. He failed to note that researchers have found no connection between mental illness and gun violence. Trumps Speech Here
