Republican nominee Donald Trump was planning to start part two of his campaign with an attack to Hillary Clinton, but the attack in Orlando, categorized as the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, made him change his strategy. Therefore, this Monday, he will be in New Hampshire, after cancelling a rally in Portsmouth, “due to the horrific tragedy that has just taken place in Orlando, according to the Boston Globe.
A classic Trump discourse? Definitely!
Of course, we don’t expect a traditional speech, as Trump will most likely condemn Islamism, ask President Barack Obama once again to resign and claim that Hillary Clinton should retire from the presidential race.
Sustaining this are the tweets he sent Sunday, when not a lot of details about the attack were revealed yet. Donald Trump boasted on Twitter, saying that this proves that he was right with his warnings over “radical Islamic terrorism.”
The businessman’s campaign announced that this Monday supporters should be looking forward to a “major speech to further address this terrorist attack, immigration, and national security.” Knowing Donald Trump, he will definitely come back to his idea about temporary banning Muslims from entering the United States.
“What has happened in Orlando is just the beginning. Our leadership is weak and ineffective. I called it and asked for the ban. Must be tough,” he wrote on Twitter.
The Democrat reactions also came quick
Hillary Clinton reacted to the attack as well. “Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are hard at work, and we will learn more in the hours and days ahead,” she said, also expressing her sympathy for the victims.
50 people died in the attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, after U.S.-born Florida resident Omar Mateen, a supporter of the Islamic State militant group, entered the location and opened fire with an assault gun.
