WATCH LIVE: President Trump Addresses the Nation After Florida School Shooting

President Donald Trump will address the country today in light of the tragic events that took place in Parkland, Florida. The speech is scheduled for 11 a.m. EST.

Earlier today, the White House released a Presidential Proclamation in recognition of the 17 people killed and others who were wounded after a shooter attacked Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Trump has been in contact with local law enforcement and first responders, and based on his tweet earlier today, it seems he will speak about the importance of reporting warning signs as he tries to comfort the nation.

This latest school shooting has prompted new discussions about gun control and violence prevention throughout the country. It is believed that the shooter legally purchased his weapons despite the fact that he was expelled from the school for disciplinary reasons, and people were aware of his troubled personality and the disturbing content he posted on social media.
