A Twitter user believed to be a student at the Florida high school devastated by a mass shooting on Wednesday called President Donald Trump a “fucking piece of shit” for his response to the massacre. In a tweet that has since gone viral, “Sarah,” urged Trump to take action in response to the shooting instead of offering prayers.
The tweet came from the account @chaddiedabaddie, which purports to belong to a 16-year-old student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. It was in response to this tweet from Trump, which was posted in the aftermath of what looks to be the most deadly high school shooting in U.S. history, with 17 people dead.
My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 14, 2018
Sarah’s tweet has nearly 350,000 likes at this writing, more than twice as many as Trump’s initial response.
I don’t want your condolences you fucking price of shit, my friends and teachers were shot. Multiple of my fellow classmates are dead. Do something instead of sending prayers. Prayers won’t fix this. But Gun control will prevent it from happening again. https://t.co/UZPgcPoPUX
