Donald Trump congratulates self on Attack on Gay Nightclub - Update

More than 50 people were killed this morning when a man, reportedly angry after seeing two men kissing, attacked a gay nightclub in Orlando. His alleged connection to ISIS ideals has set one man off ... Donald Trump.

“I said this was going to happen,” he boasted in a sloganeering statement later the same day, because “our leaders are weak.” The same tune is being played among Trump's supporters, where conversation about the attacks and media coverage is a conspiracy theory about Islamic terrorism.

(The shooter was described by his ex-wife to The Washington Post as "violent and mentally unstable," but "not very religious.")

U.S.-born Omar Mateen was killed by police.
Trump revisited his proposal to ban Muslims entering the United States on Sunday after at least 50 people died and 53 injured in the attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

"What has happened in Orlando is just the beginning. Our leadership is weak and ineffective. I called it and asked for the ban. Must be tough," Trump wrote on Twitter. In a statement late Sunday, the businessman went further than U.S. officials investigating the shootings by asserting that the attack in Orlando was the work of a "radical Islamic terrorist."

Trump and his supporters reject gun control, even those rules that might have prevented an unstable man from legally buying an assault weapon and mowing down 50 people.

A Trump supporter played Trump's speeches on a loudspeaker outside the Port St. Lucie, Florida home of Mateen's parent's.
