In One Tweet, Trump Just Made The Horrendous Orlando Shooting About Himself

If you haven’t yet heard, a mass shooting took place at the gay bar Pulse in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday, leaving at least 50 people dead and more than 50 wounded. According to officials, Omar Mateen, a Muslim-American, is the suspected gunman. The tragic massacre has now gone on record as the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Understandably, people have been mourning the incident, questioning what spurs one to commit such a heinous act. But one individual – the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, no less – has used the incident as one more plug for his campaign.
Shortly after the mass shooting made news, Donald Trump took to twitter.

Yes, the presidential contender revelled in congratulations “for being right on radical Islamic terrorism.” Of course, he followed the self-congratulatory sentiment with “I don’t want congrats, I want toughness and vigilance. We must be smart!”

Immediately, the business tycoon received negative backlash from Twitter users. Clearly, people don’t appreciate him using the massacre as a public relations stunt.

It is a time for mourning in the United States. Not only is a crooked war criminal campaigning against a bigoted, sexist businessman for president, the worst shooting in modern U.S. history just took place at a gay nightclub. And, of course, the incident will do nothing to help dissolve Islamophobia in the United States, as the man responsible pledged his allegiance to ISIS moments before the attack.

The most important takeaway from this article should be this: the American people are more powerful united than divided, and mass shootings tend to ripple throughout the entire world and crinkle relations through fear. In the wake of this tragedy, it is now more important than ever that people band together and demand justice, holding fast to the notion that ISIS is an extremist group – like the KKK – and that love, always, will prevail.
