Barbadian singer Rihanna has criticized US President Donald Trump’s response to the upshot of a pair of mass shootings in the country that left 29 dead.
Concise News reports that Trump in a tweet described the incident as unfortunate, while expressing his condolences.
He wrote “Today’s shooting in El Paso, Texas, was not only tragic, it was an act of cowardice. I know that I stand with everyone in this Country to condemn today’s hateful act. There are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing innocent people.”
Responding to the president’s tweet, Rihanna said ‘Um… Donald, you spelt “terrorism” wrong! Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead.”
“ This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to LEGALLY purchase an assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving 6 more people dead including a young infant baby boy!”
“Imagine a world where it’s easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA! Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!! My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY.” She added
The shooting occured at a sprawling shopping complex in El Paso on Saturday.
