Trump visits Florida shooting victims, vows to tackle 'mental health' issues

Trump slams FBI over school shooting says preoccupied with Russia probe

Funeral services are being scheduled for victims of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.

"The gunman, a insane person, just walks into the school, breaks down the window of my child's door and starts shooting, shooting her, and killing her", Alhadeff said.

Among the student speakers were Cameron Kasky, 17, one of the students who launched "Never Again MSD", which has amassed almost 35,000 followers on Facebook in just three days, and Delaney Tarr, 17, who hid in a closet during the shooting and vowed to commit the rest of her life to reforming American gun laws. We need security now for all these children. Gonzalez said, her voice breaking into a scream.

"President Trump, you say what can you do?" "Action! We need it now!"

So far, there's been no indication that the White House is discussing legislation on guns; he said Thursday that he hoped to see Congress "tackle the hard issue of mental health".

Trump told the group he had met with a female survivor who had been shot four times, including in the lung, adding that quick first responders had saved her life.

But his latest budget request would slash Medicaid, the major source of federal funding for treating mental health problems, and cut school safety programs by more than a third.

In a departure from the Trumps' original schedule, Mrs. Trump arrived at Air Force One separately from her husband for the flight to Florida and boarded the plane while reporters were kept away.

A history teacher recalls the terrifying moment a gunman opened fire on her classroom in the U.S. state of Florida. A spokeswoman said the change was due to scheduling.

The FBI said a person close to Cruz called the FBI's tip line and provided information about Cruz's weapons and his erratic behavior.

Cruz, who has had a history of mental illness, is now at the main Broward County jail facing 17 counts of premeditated murder. But he embraced gun rights as a candidate, and the NRA spent $30 million in support of his campaign.

This is an issue that goes well beyond the borders of the United States.

"We will make this a top priority", Sessions said in a statement.

Trump made no specific policy recommendations, and he did not answer shouted questions about guns as he exited the room.

At school, Cruz routinely fought with teachers, was accused of swearing at staff and was referred for a "threat assessment" in January 2017, two months after the DCF investigation concluded, The New York Times reported Saturday, citing school disciplinary records it obtained.
