Responding to Donald Trump's failure to express condolences to the family of man who died in a Trump Tower fire on Saturday night, social media users blasted the president for devoting his regular Sunday morning Twitter time to rage at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Washington Post.
Sunday morning, after failing to acknowledge the death of a man in his signature New York City property, Trump wrote, "‘The FBI closed the case on Hillary, which was a rigged investigation. They exonerated her even before they ever interviewed her, they never even put her under oath…..’ and much more. So true Jesse! @WattersWorld.”
This followed a Saturday evening tweet where he praised his building, tweeting, "Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!”
The president's callousness towards the fiery death of a tenant in a Trump Tower apartment that did not contain sprinklers -- which Trump lobbied against -- did not go unnoticed on Twitter, with one user writing: "What in the name of all that is holy is WRONG WITH YOU?"
