'He is no leader. He is a pathological narcissist bent on building his power by turning us against one another.'

Robert Reich shared his thoughs concerning Donald Trump's response on Facebook:

'Donald Trump's response to the worst mass shooting in U.S. history over the weekend was not to mourn the victims or empathize with their families. It was, in characteristic Trump fashion, to congratulate himself and to fan the flames of hate: 'Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!' he tweeted. Trump then repeated his call for his temporary Muslim ban -- even though the shooter is an American citizen. '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,' he said.

I would not repeat this shameful drivel except for the fact that this man is the presumptive Republican candidate for president of the United States. He is no leader. He is a pathological narcissist bent on building his power by turning us against one another.'

On June 12, 2016, a mass shooting occurred at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando. At least 50 people were killed; another 53 people were injured in the shooting, with many requiring surgery in local hospitals.
