Donald and Melania Trump Visit Victims, First Responders, and Law Officials from Florida Shooting

Latest news

    President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump traveled to Broward County Florida to visit the victims of the school shooting and some of the first responders to the scene.

    The president and first lady traveled Broward Health North Hospital where they met with hospital staff, some of the victims and their families.

    They spent time with two patients from the school – a girl that was shot shot four times and a boy.

    The president shared photos of his hospital visit on his Twitter account.

    “It’s sad something like that could happen,” Trump said.

    They also greeted and thanked hospital staff.

    “The job they’ve done is incredible and I want to congratulate you,” Trump said.

    Trump praised the “record setting” speed from first responders who cared for the victims.

    “It’s an incredible thing,” he said.

    Trump later visited law enforcement officers at Broward County Sheriff’s Office and thanked them for their efforts.

    Gov. Rick Scott and Sen. Marco Rubio joined the president and first lady at a roundtable of law officials who responded to the shooting.

    They met Officer Mike Leonard of the Coconut Creek Police Department, the official who spotted and arrested the shooter.

    Trump joked that Leonard was too “modest” after he told the story of how he apprehended the shooter.

    “Very few people would have done what you did,” Trump said. “I think it was a fantastic job.”

    First Lady Melania Trump also spoke to the officials.

    “Thank you all for what you do and saving our children, that’s the most inportant, they’re our future, and let’s take care of them because they will go through a lot,” she said.

    Sheriff Scott Israel thanked the president and the first lady for visiting the community.

    “Our conversation is not what I’m going to remember most, I’m going to remember most about a half hour that you and the first lady spent with the son of who was shot of one of our injured deputies,” Israel said to Trump. “I’ll never forget that and for you to do something like that is amazing and shows what you think of law enforcement and we appreciate it.”
