Trump: Saudis “Greatly Angered” By Navy Shooting

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Friday said he spoke with King Salman of Saudi Arabia after U.S. officials said that a Saudi national was suspected of opening fire at a naval air station in Pensacola, Fla., killing three people and injuring several others.

“The King said that the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter, and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people who love the American people,” Trump tweeted.

The Saudi leader expressed his condolences to the families of those killed in the shooting, Trump said. “It’s a horrible thing that took place, and we’re getting to the bottom of it,” Trump said of the shooting during an event focused on deregulation.
