President Donald Trump praised first responders and doctors who tried to save as many victims as possible from the Parkland shooting during a surprise visit Friday at the Broward Health North hospital.

Trump praised the “speed” at which law enforcement officers reached Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when the first shots rang out to reporters gathered at the hospital.


“It’s very sad, something like that could happen. But the job the doctors did, the nurses, the hospital, first responders, law enforcement, really incredible. The speed that they got the victims over to the hospital is like — one case 20 minutes, in one case 19 minutes from the time of the shots. It’s an incredible thing,” Trump told reporters at the hospital, also praising doctors for the “incredible jobs” they were doing with the victims.

Trump made the visit to the hospital two days after former student Nikolas Cruz opened fire on his old school, killing 17 and wounding multiple people. Cruz told cops he was the shooter and has since been charged with seventeen counts of premeditated murder.
