Woke up to hear the devastating news from FL. As we wait for more information, my thoughts are with those affected by this horrific act. -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 12, 2016
While Donald Trump said he appreciated the congratulations on being right about radical terrorism and began attacking President Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 12, 2016
Is President Obama going to finally mention the words radical Islamic terrorism? If he doesn't he should immediately resign in disgrace!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 12, 2016
'Appreciate the congrats' says Trump. Can there be a more heinous, self-serving, disqualifying statement about the murder of 50 people?— Ed Miliband (@Ed_Miliband) June 12, 2016
