President Trump marks the 2nd anniversary of Parkland's shooting

President Trump was to commemorate the second anniversary of the dead school shooting in Parkland, Florida on Friday, tweeting that all Americans should nurture memories of the 17 victims.

“It's two years since the tragedy in Parkland,” Trump tweeted at 5:30 p.m.

“We will always lament the innocent life that was taken from us – 14 fantastic students and 3 great educators,” read the tweet. “Earlier this week, I met families whose experience from that terrible day is still putting the soul….

“Today, @FLOTUS and I encourage all Americans to remember and remember those who lost us through loving actions and service. We will keep Parkland forever in our hearts. ”

Fred Guttenberg, father of the victim Jaime Guttenberg, shot 14, was escorted from Union Trump's State launch last week after he was shouting from the gun under the gun control. He was a guest of the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The shooter accused Nikolas Cruz, a former student at Douglas Douglas Douglas Marjory, remains jailed pending trial on 17 murder counts and 17 attempted murder in the killing of February 14, 2018.

His trial is due to start in the summer of 2021. His lawyers said that Cruz will plead guilty if he is killed by the death penalty, but prosecutors have refused such a deal.
