Even though Obama has been out of office for over a year, he still likes to pretend that he is the President. After the Florida shooting Obama took to Twitter to make an announcement and call for gun control laws.
“We are grieving with Parkland. But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job. And until we can honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change,” Obama tweeted.
This tweet by Obama is a huge contrast to President Trump’s message. A message that can unify the country instead of divide. “It is not enough to simply take actions that make us feel like we are making a difference, we must actually make that difference,” said President Trump in an address.
“I want to speak now directly to America’s children, especially those who feel lost alone confused or even scared. I want you to know that you are never alone, and you never will be. You have people who care about you, who love you and who will do anything at all to protect you. If you need help, turn to a teacher, a family member, a local police officer or a faith leader,” said Trump.
Answer hate with love. Answer cruelty with kindness. We must also work together to create a culture in our country that embraces the dignity of life, that creates deep and meaningful human connections, and that turns classmates and colleagues into friends and neighbors,” said Trump.
