President Trump marked the second anniversary of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida on Friday, tweeting that all Americans should “cherish and honor” the memories of the 17 victims.
“It has been two years since the tragedy in Parkland,” Trump tweeted at 5:30 p.m.
“We will always mourn the innocent lives taken from us – 14 wonderful students and 3 terrific educators,” the tweet read. “Earlier this week, I met with families whose experiences from that horrible day still pierce the soul ….
“Today, @FLOTUS and I encourage all Americans to cherish and honor the memory of those we have lost through acts of love and service. We will hold Parkland forever in our hearts.”
Fred Guttenberg, the father of shooting victim Jaime Guttenberg, 14, was escorted from Trump’s State of the Union address last week after shouting from the gallery about gun control. He had been a guest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
