After the attack on Monday in Ohio State University, where the attacker tried to stab as many students as possible, before the police got him, President-elect Donald Trump posted on his Twitter a message to everyone affected by the incident. In the attack nine people were hospitalized and one person died.
The attacker crashed a vehicle into a group of pedestrians and then slashed at students with butcher knife. At the end an Ohio State police officer shot down the attacker.
As the police later reported, the crash was intentional and the attacker was a Somali refugee.
“Watching the news unfold at Ohio State University. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the students and administration,” Trump posted on his Facebook page.
“Excellent job by the Ohio State University Emergency Management Team (OSU_EMFP) in immediately notifying students & faculty via social media with the message: ‘Buckeye Alert: Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight. Watts Hall. 19th and College,’” he wrote.
“THANK YOU to all FIRST RESPONDERS who reacted immediately and eliminated the threat on campus,” Trump added.
Many went to Trump’s Facebook page to send their responses to a president-elect who was speaking directly to the people on issues other than politics.
“Thank u mr president for being the first in my existence as a man of power to get on social media explaining the situation. I wish this happened all the time,” commented Melissa Hudson.
Others noted the contrast between Trump and President Barack Obama.
“Thank you for showing your support and care and concern for the people of Ohio state. You won’t see Obama talking about this,” posted Shane Marcum.
“Thank you President Elect Trump for making such quick supportive responses to these situations..unlike the current President,” commented Linda Jean.
One college student included his thanks.
“As a student at OSU who was on campus while this was happening, thank you so much for making this post. Thoughts and prayers with my fellow Buckeyes today,” posted Josh Cardosi.
