Donald Trump’s response to the Las Vegas shootings that sent over 400 people to one trauma hospital and killed well over 50 people read like a greeting card. Had Hillary Clinton been president, she would have had a far different response. Why? For one thing, she has empathy, but that certainly is not the only difference.
The former presidential candidate in the 2016 race is not a Republican. Many people in the GOP are strong advocates of their interpretation of the Second Amendment, meaning anyone who wants a gun or many guns has a right to them. Not only that, Republicans find a rich pile of campaign money if they endorse the National Rifle Association (NFL).
Clinton’s tweet following the largest mass shooting in the country’s history exuded strength, while Trump’s displayed weakness. She called the shooting what it was, a “cold-blooded massacre:”
‘Las Vegas, we are grieving with you – the victims, those who lost loved ones, the responders, & all affected by this cold-blooded massacre.’
