Democratic Congressman Ruben Gallego called President Donald Trump “a psychopath” late Saturday in response to Trump’s suggestion that the FBI was too distracted over Russian collusion theories to prevent last week’s Florida school shooting.
You are such a psychopath that you have to make even the death of 17 children about you. America will regret the day you were ever born. https://t.co/5jyhVXRSRn

On Saturday night, Trump tweeted:
Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!

Gallego tweeted out his response to Trump’s criticism within minutes of the president’s missive. Gallego’s Twitter account describes the Arizona congressman as a “Proud Democrat” as well as being a military veteran.
