Trump on SF shooting: Trump San Francisco Shooting

Trump on SF shooting: Trump San Francisco Shooting, Donald Trump, who declared during his presidential campaign announcement that Mexican immigrants were rapists and killers, took to Twitter on Friday to use San Francisco’s fatal shooting at Pier 14 to once again slam illegal immigration and call for stronger border control.

Trump tweeted out his “heartfelt condolences” to Kate Steinle and her family. Steinle, 32, was shot and killed Wednesday by 45-year-old Francisco Sanchez while she was walking with her father and a family friend along the pier.

Sanchez, who had five times been deported, was released in April after a judge dismissed drug charges against him. Before his release, U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcements officials requested they be notified about his release so they could take him into custody.

In a subsequent tweet, Trump called out fellow Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio about border control, saying “What do you say to the family of Kathryn Steinle in CA who was viciously killed b/c we can’t secure our border? Stand up for US.”

Trump also tweeted a linked to a Washington Times story about the killing, following it up with “We need a wall!”

In recent weeks, several organizations and networks have cut ties with the Donald after his comments on Mexican immigrants, among them NBC, which used to air the Miss USA pageant. However, the network recently announced it would no longer do so after it fired Trump. The pageant, co-owned by Trump, was later picked up by Reelz Channel.
