President Donald J. Trump may be traveling overseas, but he still has his finger on what’s taking place in the United States.
The president took to Twitter Sunday afternoon shortly after reports of a mass shooting in Texas took storm on social media.
The president tweeted the following: “May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.”
The death toll is feared to be at least 20 people. According to local reports, a gunman opened fire at a church outside San Antonio on Sunday. Some news outlets are reporting that children may have been killed, however, DML News has yet to confirm those reports.
The mass shooting was reported at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, which is about 30 miles southeast of San Antonio. The gunman has been fatally shot by police.
Wilson County Commissioner Larry Wiley said between 20 and 24 people are dead, and around 20 were wounded when a man walked into the church about 11:30 a.m. on Sunday and opened fire at the crowd of people.
Vice President Pence also tweeted out his prayers to the families of those impacted by the deadly shooting which comes less than 40 days after the deadliest mass shooting in US history took place in Las Vegas, NV where 58 people were killed by shooter Stephen Paddock. Unfortunately, Paddock’s motive remains a mystery.
May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.
