Melania Makes Shock Announcement From Shooting Victims Hospital Room After What She Saw
The shooting in Florida broke the hearts of every American when they heard the news. Not only because it was heartbreaking but because it was adolescent children and teenagers who were the victims.
It was the second deadliest shooting in American history. And as a result, the President and First Lady visited the victims in Florida and their families.
During his visit there President Trump took the opportunity to praise first responders and doctors who responded to this tragic event. Most notably, he and Melania Trump praised them for responding quickly. They did so during a surprise visit on Friday to Broward Health North hospital.
Bizpac Review reported,
“Trump praised the “speed” at which law enforcement officers reached Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when the first shots rang out to reporters gathered at the hospital. “It’s very sad, something like that could happen. But the job the doctors did, the nurses, the hospital, first responders, law enforcement, really incredible. The speed that they got the victims over to the hospital is like — one case 20 minutes, in one case 19 minutes from the time of the shots.
It’s an incredible thing,” Trump told reporters at the hospital, also praising doctors for the “incredible jobs” they were doing with the victims. Trump made the visit to the hospital two days after former student Nikolas Cruz opened fire on his old school, killing 17 and wounding multiple people. Cruz told cops he was the shooter and has since been charged with seventeen counts of premeditated murder.”
While the Palm Beach Post reported,
“In a tweet posted from Mar-a-Lago shortly before midnight, President Donald Trump released photos of his visits on Friday evening with a victim of the Parkland shooting and the doctors, nurses and first-responders who cared for victims. The president has no official events today and appears to have no activities planned outside Mar-a-Lago. He is expected to attend a fundraiser tonight at Mar-a-Lago hosted by Orphan’s Promise, a children’s charity affiliated with the Christian Broadcasting Network.”
Our entire Nation, w/one heavy heart, continues to pray for the victims & their families in Parkland, FL. To teachers, law enforcement, first responders & medical professionals who responded so bravely in the face of danger: We THANK YOU for your courage! https://t.co/3yJsrebZMG pic.twitter.com/ti791dENTy

Breitbart News reported,
“Gov. Rick Scott and Sen. Marco Rubio joined the president and first lady at a roundtable of law officials who responded to the shooting. They met Officer Michael Leonard of the Coconut Creek Police Department, the official who spotted and arrested the shooter. Trump joked that Leonard was too “modest” after he told the story of how he apprehended the shooter.
“Very few people would have done what you did,” Trump said. “I think it was a fantastic job.” Melania Trump also spoke to the officials. “Thank you all for what you do and saving our children. That’s the most important; they’re our future, and let’s take care of them because they will go through a lot,” she said. Sheriff Scott Israel thanked the president and his wife for visiting the community.
“Our conversation is not what I’m going to remember most. I’m going to remember most about a half hour that you and the first lady spent with the son [who was shot] of one of our injured deputies,” Israel said to Trump. “I’ll never forget that, and for you to do something like that is amazing and shows what you think of law enforcement, and we appreciate it.””
Melania Trump told the first responders:
“Thank you all for what you do and saving our children. That’s the most important; they’re our future, and let’s take care of them because they will go through a lot.”
The tragedy in Florida was nothing short of heartbreaking. The United States and all of our citizens are lucky to have somebody like Melania Trump and the President representing our nation and giving credit to our first responders like they never have before. First responders put their lives on the line to protect the American public without a second thought for their own safety. They deserve to have a little bit of public admiration.
If it weren’t for the first responders many more could have likely died as a result of the shooting. But they did not because of their swift and rapid responses, which the President and First Lady made it a point to recognize. They are a class act and bring pride to the American people and the Americans who work in the public service industry.
Let us pray that our first responders take care of themselves as well as they respond to this crisis,
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.”
