As a hor­rific school shoot­ing un­folded in Park­land, Fla., Pres­i­dent Trump took to Twit­ter to of­fer his con­do­lences to the fam­i­lies of those who were killed and wounded.

“My prayers and con­do­lences to the fam­i­lies of the vic­tims in the ter­ri­ble Florida shoot­ing,” Trump wrote in a tweet shortly after stu­dents and teach­ers were gunned down in­side the fresh­man build­ing at Mar­jory Stone­man Dou­glas High School. “No child, teacher or any­one else should ever feel un­safe in an Amer­i­can school.”

Trump also tweeted that he spoke with Florida Gov. Rick Scott and was “work­ing closely with law en­force­ment” in the wake of the mass shoot­ing.

The White House said that dur­ing their con­ver­sa­tion, Trump of­fered Scott any fed­eral as­sis­tance he needed.

First lady Me­la­nia Trump also of­fered her con­do­lences on Twit­ter, writ­ing, “My heart is heavy over the school shoot­ing in Florida. Keeping all af­fected in my thoughts & prayers.”
