Trump to meet with Florida high school students

Parkland Massacre Is On Trump After He Revoked Obama Era Gun Checks For The Mentally Ill

US President Donald Trump announced Friday he was headed to Florida to meet with victims of the mass shooting that claimed 17 lives at a high school in Parkland.

Mr Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited Broward Health North Hospital to pay their respects to the medical professionals who had responded to the shooting in nearby Parkland.

"How dare you", he added.

Emma's speech caused a firestorm at the rally and on social media, many calling her a hero and a new leader in the fight against gun violence.

On Friday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged 13 Russians and three Russian companies with conspiracy to tamper in the 2016 US election.

Trump did not address the shooting on Wednesday night, choosing instead to wait until Thursday morning to speak to the nation from the White House.

"This kid exhibited every single known red flag, from killing animals to having a cache of weapons to disruptive behavior to saying he wanted to be a school shooter", the county's public defender, Howard Finkelstein, told the New York Times.

- October 2017, Las Vegas shooting kills 58 people: Trump called the shooter "demented" and a "very sick individual".

Trump last February quietly rolled back a contentious Obama-era regulation that made it harder for people with mental illnesses to buy guns.

Governor Rick Scott, also a Republican, attended a prayer vigil at the First Church Coral Springs, a few blocks from the shooting site.

"Now is the time to get on the right side of this, because this is not something that we are going to let sweep under the carpet", she said on Meet The Press.




The debate over gun control in America has been polarizing and politicized.

The students have vowed to become the face of a movement for tighter firearm regulations and plan to visit the state capitol in Tallahassee this week to demand immediate action.

The Coral Gables resident had long planned this trip to the Washington area to celebrate her 19th birthday with family Friday.

Glenis Rosario carries balloons to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Feb. 18, 2018 in Parkland, Fla. And in the aftermath of hurricanes past year, Trump was criticized for overly valedictory remarks, even as thousands remained without power or food.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel first reported that a video of Cruz cutting his arm posted to the social media network Snapchat in September 2016 raised concerns among law enforcement and at the Florida Department of Children and Families. The report showed Cruz had written a racial epithet against African-Americans and a Nazi symbol on his book bag, which his mother had forced him to erase. His state-appointed defense attorney said Friday that Cruz is willing to plead guilty to life without parole in order to be spared the possibility of a death sentence.

Several lawmakers, including a fellow Republican, also rejected Trump's linking of the FBI's missteps in preventing the shooting to the Russian Federation probe.

Student survivors of the massacre slammed Trump for connecting it to the Russian Federation probe, which has shadowed his year-old presidency. The case was closed, with the investigator concluding that Cruz was receiving help from his mother and counsellors, and "no other referrals or services were needed".

Cruz's mother died in November and his father died years ago. "It's as simple as that".

"Give them a raise", he said.

Broward County Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said he and officials believe a fitting tribute to Biegel, Alexander and 15 others killed in the massacre would be tear down the building the shooting occurred and turn the space into a memorial park. In one, he asked what classroom the boy was in.
