Florida Massacre: Mother of High School Shooting Victim to Trump ‘Do Something!’

A mother of one of the 17 students killed in Thursday’s shooting at a South Florida high school has had it with prayers and condolences.

In an gut-wrenching interview with HLN’s “Michaela” show, Lori Alhadeff spoke right to the camera, demanding President Donald Trump “do something!”

“Yesterday, on Valentine’s Day, I dropped her off at school and I said, ‘I love you,’” Alhadeff told reporter Mike Galanos. “And then few hours later I get a call that there’s a shooter at Stoneman Douglas High School and I ran as fast as I could to get there and I knew at that point she was gone. I felt it in my heart.”

 

That’s when Alhadeff spoke directly to the president: “What can you do? You can do a lot,” she went on to say. “I just spent the last two hours putting the burial arrangements for my daughter’s funeral, she’s 14.”

“President Trump, please do something!” she implored.
