President Obama reacted to the Texas shooting on Sunday be instantly politicizing the event, according to The Daily Caller.
Obama called for gun control and said that Americans should ask God for “the wisdom to ask what concrete steps we can take to reduce the violence and weaponry in our midst.”

“We grieve with all the families in Sutherland Springs harmed by this act of hatred, and we’ll stand with the survivors as they recover,” Obama wrote on Twitter. “May God also grant all of us the wisdom to ask what concrete steps we can take to reduce the violence and weaponry in our midst.”
Obama, who has taken an unusually active role during his successor’s administration, offered no specific details on what those steps to reduce the guns “in our midst” would look like.
Obama’s reaction stood in stark contrast to President Trump’s.
Trump praised the American people for their strength in the face of tragedy and said “Americans do what we do best: we pull together. We join hands. We lock arms.”
