President Trump was criticized on social media Wednesday after photographs captured him holding a notecard with several bullet points, including one that said “I hear you,” during a listening session with survivors of the Florida high school shooting.
The notecard also said, “What would you most want me to know about your experience?” “What can we do to help you feel ___?”
Social media users were quick to go after the president for the notes, including some who questioned whether it was photoshopped.
Trump promised students and families members at the listening session that his administration is going to take action to prevent future school shootings.
"We are going to be very strong on background checks, and put a very strong emphasis on the mental health of somebody," he said. "I want to listen. And then after I listen, we're going to get things done."
