Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump took to Twitter early Sunday after approximately 20 people were killed and more than 40 others were wounded in an attack at an Orlando, Fla. nightclub.
“Really bad shooting in Orlando,” the candidate tweeted.
“Police investigating possible terrorism. Many people dead and wounded.”

The shooting at the Pulse nightclub is currently being characterized as an act of domestic terrorism. The suspect, who was killed inside the gay bar and dance club during a shootout with police, had an assault-style rifle, a handgun and “some type of device.”
The man was “organized and well-prepared,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina said.
An agent from the FBI’s Orlando field office said there are “suggestions” the suspect may have “leanings” toward radical Islamic ideology.
