Since there had been reported incident of shooting in other parts of US and that reportedly the government is lacking action to come up with a solution about this problem, netizen lambasted Trump for what he tweeted.
One of the netizens who was pissed off of the US President’s tweet is Aly Sheehy, a survivor during the Parkland shooting.
More “thoughts and prayers” that aren’t going to change anything. https://t.co/9yaPxTI6i2

Several netizens also bashed the phrase “thoughts and prayers” that Trump said to express his sympathy to the situation.
Here are some tweets from frustrated netizens on the US President’s response about YouTube Headquarters shooting.
america has a GUN problem. it is NOT just in our schools.
clear backpacks or armed teachers would not have stopped the shooting at the Youtube HQ.
we don’t need “thoughts and prayers.”
we need POLICY and CHANGE.

Trump is neither a thinking man nor a religious one, so “thoughts and prayers” mean little coming from him.
We need action, not hollow gestures, to help change the developed world’s worst mass shooting problem.
Until then there will be another San Bruno next week if not sooner.

Trump and Republicans,
Your “thoughts and prayers” are condescending and empty.
Stop praying and start legislating!
San Bruno & YouTube
