Doctors and nurses have done 'incredible' job responding to school slaying

Kimmel to Trump You've literally done nothing

"I want to say thank you to you guys 'cause I had my laptop up, and the only way for us to know what was going on outside is we were watching your live feed on the helicopters", said Kurth. He would also praise the victim's families, saying they were "really great shape" given the circumstances.

Trump and first lady Melania met with injured victims and first responders at the hospital two days after 17 people were killed by a lone gunman at nearby Douglas High School.

Never a natural at consolation, the president seemed more at ease extending hearty thanks to first responders, marvelling at the speed with which they rushed the wounded to the hospital and quipping that they deserved a raise.

Despite such an unrelenting onslaught, American politics has been unable to make meaningful headway on gun control. Future voters at South Broward High School have left classes to protest for better gun control.

Kurth is a pro-gun voter who picked Donald Trump in the 2016 election, but she said: "Please stop making it a mental illness issue and acknowledge the fact that it is both a gun and mental illness issue".

During the visit at the hospital Trump met girls basketball player Maddy Wilford, 18, who is now in stable condition. "It's a dream. It hasn't hit me yet".

Family and friends console each other as they arrive for the funeral of Meadow Pollack, a victim of the Wednesday shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Fla., Friday, Feb. 16, 2018.

An emotional Kimmel had several suggestions for the President in his speech. In the wake of a mass shooting at a SC church, Obama led thousands in singing "Amazing Grace".

The visit reprised the itinerary the president followed in Las Vegas last October after a mass shooting at a concert. "In this moment, I am a mom of three kids that go to school and I had to talk my kids off a ledge this morning because they were afraid to go to school".

Sadly, 97 children have been killed and 126 injured in mass shootings in U.S. schools since 1989.

On Friday night, Trump traveled in a motorcade from Air Force One at Palm Beach International Airport to North Broward Hospital in Pompano Beach.

The crowd chanted slogans such as "No more" and "How many more?"

Lori Alhadeff's 14-year-old daughter Alyssa was killed during the shooting. And she's made it personal, invoking the president's 11-year-old son, Barron. We need security now for all these children. "Congress has a moral responsibility to take common-sense action to prevent the daily tragedy of gun violence in communities across America", she said. It is precisely because Cruz has mental health issues that he should have been denied a gun in the first place.

At the meeting, Mr Trump shook hands with Officer Mike Leonard of the Coconut Creek Police Department, who told the president he had been the one to apprehend the alleged shooter. However, Trump secretly rolled-back on the regulations according to NBC.

Oh, and Donald Trump, whose campaign benefited from the NRA to the tune of about $31 million btw.
