"They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion". "We must make sure that they hear us", she said.

Trump said he'll visit Parkland. Remember the Dirty Dossier, Uranium, Speeches, Emails and the Podesta Company!

The president and first lady Melania Trump are visiting Broward Health North Hospital in Pompano Beach.

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation revealed it had received a tip in January, warning the organization about shooter Nikolas Cruz.

"You're the President. You're supposed to bring this nation together, not divide us", said David Hogg, a 17-year-old student from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, speaking on NBC's Meet the Press.

Cruz, apparently at the age of 18, bought the weapon legally, as well as hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

Earlier Thursday, the President took to Twitter to point out there were "so many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed". The FBI confirmed Friday that someone did warn the agency weeks before the shooting, but it wasn't properly followed up.

Mr Trump added that he was working with Congress "on many fronts" but did not specify what those fronts were.

Investigators described him as a troubled teenager who posted disturbing material on social media and had been expelled from the high school for "disciplinary reasons", Broward County, Florida, Sheriff Scott Israel said.

The vice president says, "then as now, our hearts were broken".

"A gunman, a insane person just walks right into the school, knocks down the window of my child's door and starts shooting, shooting her and killing her", she said.

Trump has resisted strengthening firearm laws in the wake of mass shootings, echoing an argument that the time for discussing legislative solutions to gun violence is not in the immediate moments following such tragedies.

Cruz was also known to local police after his mother repeatedly called them over his violent outbursts, while records obtained by the South Florida Sun Sentinel show welfare services investigated Cruz after he cut his arms and said he wanted to buy a gun.

Yes, better support for mental health services is needed and would benefit a large number of people, not just those who might be prone to violence.
