Politics – President Obama responds to Orlando shooting


In a statement from the White House, President Barack Obama said the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando is being investigated as an act of terrorism. “We know enough to say this was an act of terror and an act of hate,” Obama said on Sunday afternoon. “The FBI is appropriately investigating this as an act of terror. We will go wherever the facts lead us … What is clear is he was a person filled with hatred.” Obama continued, saying “This massacre is a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that allows them to shoot people.” He said the shooting was “an especially heartbreaking day for our friends who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.”
