Trump also praised the “excellent job by the Ohio State University Emergency Management Team in immediately notifying students and faculty via social media.”

“Thank you to all the first responders who reacted immediately and eliminated the threat on campus,” he added.

Reports have identified a 20-year-old OSU student as the suspect in Monday’s attack.

The now-deceased suspect is believed to be a Somali refugee, temporarily granted permanent status to live in the United States.
