Former President Donald J. Trump shared his response to the Robb Elementary School mass shooting Wednesday via Truth Social.

Trump wrote that it is “so hard to think or report about anything else after watching the Texas school ‘massacre’ which took place yesterday,” according to the New York Post.

“Thank you to the great wisdom and bravery of our Law Enforcement Professionals, and condolences to all who are suffering so gravely with the loss of those incredible souls so close to you,” he continued, the outlet reported, “No words can express the sorrow and grief of this absolutely horrible event. It is a moment in time which will never be forgotten!”

Trump is reportedly set to appear at a National Rifle Association conference Friday, MySanAntonio reported. He will be joined by Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Sen. Ted Cruz at the Houston-based event, the outlet noted. (RELATED: 10 Killed In Buffalo Supermarket Mass Shooting)
