Trump just blamed FBI for Florida school shooting. The survivors’ responses are all of us

This morning, amid deafening criticism over his and his party’s glaring inaction in the face of gun violence, Trump took to Twitter to deflect blame over last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida, castigating the FBI and using it as an excuse to criticize the Russia investigation.


While his supporters may believe his tenuous Twitter tirades as fact, the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people were killed and dozens injured, were not about to accept his disgusting defense lying down.

Add your name to demand Trump & Congress act to prevent gun violence. THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE NOT ENOUGH!

The President seems to have finally met his match in the students of Parkland, Florida, who have been relentless and outspoken in their demand for action a Republican Party essentially owned by the NRA.

Amid a flurry of calls by the students to actually have the courage to face those who experienced firsthand last week’s tragic events, the White House has announced that Trump will finally meet with students in Parkland, Florida.

Per The Hill, “The White House announced Sunday that Trump will host a “listening session” with both students and teachers, followed by a similar event Thursday with state and local officials to discuss school safety. No further details were provided.”

At a pro-gun control rally in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, student Emma Gonzalez slammed Trump in an impassioned, fiery, and heartwrenching speech.

“If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a terrible tragedy and how it should never have happened, and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it, I’m going to happily ask him how much money he received from the National Rifle Association,” Gonzalez said. “I already know — $30 million.”

This is the 59th mass shooting at or near a school this academic year. Americans are absolutely fed up with the inaction of Republicans in Washington who would rather defend the NRA than their own constituents.

The students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School may only be teenagers, but they are the voice of all Americans right now.
