Barack Obama Speaks Out Following Ft. Lauderdale Airport Shooting

Barack Obama is speaking out after the tragic shooting at Ft. Lauderdale airport on Friday (January 6).

During an interview with George Stephanopoulos, the President of the United States expressed grief over incident but refrained from commenting on exact details.

“As a general rule, until I’ve got all the information I don’t want to comment on it other than just to say how heartbroken we are for the families who have been affected,” he said.

Barack added, “These kinds of tragedies have happened too often during the eight years that I’ve been president. The pain, the grief, the shock that they must be going through is enormous.”

The president also explained that he is making sure local and state officials are communicating clearly and that they hope to soon learn more about how and why this tragedy happened.

    These kinds of tragedies have happened because of Obama and the Democratic party of hate policies. This shooter has been on the FBI watch list for a long time, but as always FBI did nothing to prevent this tragedy. The same has happened with the other terrorists and criminals many times before. Deaths of all those victims are on Obama’s hands. This is his legacy.
