Responding to mass shootings: how Obama and Trump compare

In recent years, the U.S has experienced a wave of mass shootings that have shaken the nation but have not been enough to trigger stricter gun regulations.

The shootings have happened in different places and have claimed the lives of children and adults alike. Sunday’s mass shooting at Sutherland Springs, Texas saw 26 people dead including children.

Here we compare the reactions of ex-president Barack Obama after the Charleston shooting in 2015 where white supremacist Dyland Roof killed nine African-Americans at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, and president Donald Trump’s speech after the Sutherland Springs shooting.
