Donald Trump is facing major backlash for the tweet he sent out Sunday following the Orlando, FL, massacre, the deadliest mass shooting in the US.
Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 12, 2016
The presumptive GOP presidential nominee said he was thankful for being congratulated for "being right" on his hard-line stance against groups like ISIS — prompting many to call him egotistical for using the moment to campaign instead of being sympathetic to the 49 victims who died in the club shooting.
Check out some of the reactions to his tweet:

making a mockery of Americans in front of the world. You don't even respect your own people enough to put some condolences— My Mom Thinks I’m Handsome (@ImSofaKingSexyy) June 12, 2016
