[VIDEO] President Obama Speaks to a City in Mourning Yesterday

"This was an act of terrorism but it was also an act of hate. This was an attack on the LGBT community."


Yesterday, President Obama and Vice President Biden traveled to Orlando, Florida to meet with survivors and families of victims of the horrific attack and to thank the law enforcement officials who bravely responded.

The President and Vice President told the victims’ families – on behalf of the American people — that “our hearts are broken, too, but we stand with you and that we are here for you, and that we are remembering those who you loved so deeply.” They then paid their respects by laying flowers at a memorial for victims of the attack.
