That's not right.

While the country mourns the senseless loss of life after the 18th school shooting of 2018, President Donald Trump Tweeted who he thinks is culpable, leaving people shocked and livid. At 4:12am Thursday morning, Trump Tweeted that the students and parents at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, bear responsibility for their tragedy.

"Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!"


Trump's Tweet likely resulted from recriminations he and other National Rifle Association beneficiaries received in the wake of the shooting, following his pattern of lashing back at critics on Twitter. But beyond the shock and anger, Twitter also had some information for the president.

People suggest it might be time for President Trump to put down his phone and work on real solutions to gun violence in the United States. Wednesday's school shooting marks the 18th in 2018. We're only halfway through February.
