Florida Governor Says He Still Hasn't Received Condolence Call From President Obama After Orlando Terrorist Attack

5 years ago

The Governor of Florida Rick Scott says President Obama has not called following the Orlando massacre on Sunday when Omar Mateen killed atleast 50 people and injuring more than 53 others in a Gay night club.

Gov. Scott said that he had received calls from Donald Trump and former President George Bush to give their condolences over Sunday's terrorist attack.

Yet, while it is common for presidents to call the governor of state after such a tragedy, he said he had heard nothing from Obama.

'No. He has not called,' Gov. Scott told Fox & Friends.

The Republican governor said that he had received a call from a White House staffer but insisted that Obama has 'not called.'

Scott has been an outspoken critic against Obama and his administration which he has repeatedly sued over the years.
