Orlando shooting: Trump, Hillary show support on Twitter

Washington: US Presidential candidates took to twitter to express their grief and support to the victims’ families of the Orlando shooting that left 50 people dead and 53 injured on Sunday morning.

“Horrific incident in FL. Praying for all the victims & their families. When will this stop? When will we get tough, smart & vigilant?” wrote Republican presumptive nominee Donald J. Trump.

Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton signed her tweet with “-H” as an indication she wrote the tweet herself, instead of her campaign’s social media staff.

“Woke up to hear the devastating news from FL. As we wait for more information, my thoughts are with those affected by this horrific act. -H.”

Democratic Bernie Sanders has not posted on Twitter about the attack, but addressed it on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“It’s horrific, it’s unthinkable,” he said. “And just hopes go out to all those who were shot that they can recover.”
