“Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!” – Donald J. Trump
The tweet issued by Trump on Saturday evening went too far, some people say. One lawmaker from Arizona blasted Trump by stating Americans will live to hate the day Trump was born.
The backlash is revving up on Sunday shows and social media, with many people pointing to Trump’s ego.
DML News is receiving its share of emails regarding the tweet. “He has to make everything about him,” responded one DML reader. Another email read, “They are burying these children and the pain of it all is at a highpoint. Why is he tweeting this sort of nonsense. He is a terrible leader. I don’t care how well the economy is doing. He needs to shut up.”
As with every Trump controversy, there are those Trump supporters who see no harm in the tweet. “The FBI is a mess and Trump has every right to call them out,” says Robert, a DML reader. “Nothing Trump said is untrue!,” read another email.
The fact is there are tens of thousands of FBI agents, and the Miami FBI office was not kept from investigating the Florida shooter due to being too busy with the Russia investigation.
