"I need president Trump, today, to demand that everyone who is making these threats stop," said Fred Guttenberg.
Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was killed during the gun massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School two weeks ago, is demanding that Trump do something to stop the threats being made against them.
During an interview by CNN Wednesday morning as Parkland students returned to class for the first time since the shooting, Guttenberg raised the issue of threats made against the student survivors and their families, and delivered an urgent message to Trump.
“I need president Trump, today, to demand that everyone who is making these threats stop,” Guttenberg told “New Day” co-host Alisyn Camerota. He also called on law enforcement to investigate the threats.
“We know they’re out there,” Guttenberg said. “Investigate. And Trump, make an announcement.”
Trump himself has acted atrociously toward survivors of the Parkland massacre, blaming classmates for failing to stop the shooter early on and failing to invite many of them to his sham “listening session” at the White House.
Trump should speak out against these threats, but since the attacks on these brave kids originate so close to home, it’s doubtful he will.
