At Florida hospital, Trump pays respects to shooting survivors and medical staff

Published

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited Broward Health North Hospital on Friday night to pay respects to survivors and medical professionals involved in this week’s school shooting massacre.

The president and the first lady flew from Washington to Florida on Friday afternoon. “Incredible recovery,” Trump said while at the hospital. “Incredible. And first responders. Everybody. The job they’ve done is incredible.”

“It’s very sad something like that can happen,” Trump said after being asked if he’d met with victims. “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 record speed. In one case, 20 minutes. In one case, 19 minutes, from the time they were shot. It’s an incredible thing.”

The White House didn’t release the president’s schedule ahead of the visit, but Trump tweeted earlier in the day that he planned to meet “with some of the bravest people on earth,” whose lives “have been totally shattered.”

The president made the trip to meet shortly after Air Force One arrived in West Palm Beach for the president to spend the weekend at his Palm Beach estate, which is about 40 miles from Parkland.
