President Trump penned a personalized, and signed letter to each student’s family who lost their child in the Florida school shooting last month at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
In the letter, Trump thanked the families for attending a “listening session” at the White House, where he heard their concerns, and brainstormed about solutions to school gun violence.
The letter, dated March 12, was shared by Hunter Pollack via Twitter, who lost his brother in the shooting.
“Our entire Nation mourns the tragic loss of Meadow. Our hearts are heavy for you and your entire family,” the letter read.
“I am deeply grateful for your presence at the White House for discussions regarding school safety. I was touched by the memories of Meadow you shared,” President Donald Trump wrote.
“We will not forget her life, and we are resolved to confront the evil that so senselessly took her from us,” it further read. “It was clear that she had a bright future, full of tremendous potential — I know that you were so proud of her. Melania and I hold you close in our hearts, and we pray for your comfort and strength,”
Andrew, Meadow’s father, made a heartfelt plea to President Donald Trump to bring an end to school shootings.
“It should have been one school shooting and we should have fixed it. I’m pissed. It was my daughter I am not going to see again. She is not here. She is not here. She is in North Lauderdale at whatever it is, King David Cemetery, that is where I go to see my kid now.” said Andrew Pollack, a Trump supporter.
“How many schools, how many children have to get shot? It stops here with this administration and me. I’m not going to sleep until it is fixed. And Mr. President, we’ll fix it. Because I’m going to fix it. I’m not going to rest,” Andrew Pollack tearfully announced.
The shooting has triggered a nation-wide conversation about gun control, with public school administrations even organizing student protests – telling the children to become anti-gun activists. These publicly funded high schools, and Soros organizations planned a highly publicized “March For Our Lives,” to call for an end to gun violence.
The Trump Administration has taken some steps to ban bump stocks, and has signaled the desire to sign legislation making background checks more intense. However, Congress has yet to produce any additional strict gun regulations, as a result of the school protests.
