As details continue to emerge about the shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday night, President Donald Trump responded to the incident on Twitter, and one bit of his phrasing is sparking controversy.
More than 59 people were killed and 527 were injured when the alleged shooter Stephen Paddock opened fire from the Mandola Bay. Authorities believe he acted alone.The attack is believed to be most deadly mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Trump responded early morning on Twitter. “My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!” he wrote.
My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2017
Trump’s “warmest condolences” remark struck people the wrong way.
" warmest condolences" ? what a bizarre response to such a terrible loss of life and murderous act . #Trump just has no idea.— Caroline Castle (@Prospectally2) October 2, 2017
That's how you respond as a president to a tragedy. Not that 'warmest condolences' nonsense from Donald Trump. https://t.co/2QjSXpOki6— Uche Amako (@UcheAmako) October 2, 2017
Khloe Kardashian: sincerest condolences.— Angelica F. (@AngelicaFlori0) October 2, 2017
Donald Trump: warmest condolences.
Wtf are warm condolences https://t.co/FDdQyNOIcn
That time I got confused when Donald Trump wished his "warmest" condolences to the families of the victims of the Las Vegas shooting— Alexandra Ravenwood (@AlexaWood42) October 2, 2017
Does “Warmest condolences” sound gross to anyone else.— Justin Epperson (@sprsk) October 2, 2017
Deepest. Not warmest.— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) October 2, 2017
"Warmest Condolences." At least 50 people murdered, and Trump says the thing you'd write in a card to a colleague who just had their cat die— Steve McHugh (@StevejMchugh) October 2, 2017
