Lori Alhadef, the mother of shooting victim Alyssa Alhadef, appeared on HLN to speak about her daughter, but the topic quickly turned to the U.S. President. After describing the morning she dropped her daughter off at school for the last time, Alhadef asked, “How do we allow a gunman to come into our children’s school? How do they get through security?”
She eventually spoke directly to Donald Trump, saying, “You can stop guns from getting into these children’s hands! Put metal detectors at every entrance to the school!” “What can you do? You can do a lot,” Alhadef added. “This is not fair to our families that our children go to school and have to get killed!”

Brooke Baldwin just came out of an emotional video message from a victim's mother to President Trump on CNN and was in tears, could barely speak as she turned to Rep. Ted Deutch for an interview.

President Trump, you say, “What can you do?”
You could do A LOT. This isn’t fair to families.
I just spent the last 2 hours planning my daughter’s funeral. She’s 14. https://t.co/ZESiiGfv1y
