The world’s first mass shooting on college campuses has left at least 58 dead and more than 1,000 injured.
The deadliest shooting in the U.S. in 20 years, which happened at a Florida community college, happened at the University of Florida’s campus in Gainesville.
The gunman, who was later identified as Stephen Paddock, opened fire on the campus at 10:30 a.m. local time.
Paddock opened fire at the university’s student union, killing two students and injuring another before fleeing the campus in a white SUV, police said.
Pelosi says she’ll take on Trump over college affordability The House Minority Leader has joined with her Democratic colleagues in pushing for President Donald Trump to sign a bill that would allow colleges and universities to offer tuition-free, merit-based aid to students who receive federal student aid.PELOSI: It’s the time to take the president to task.
It’s time to hold the president accountable.
Trump’s decision to rescind student aid means that millions of students who would otherwise be eligible for Pell grants and scholarships will have to pay higher tuition costs.
The legislation would allow federal aid to go to anyone who is eligible, regardless of income, status, or ability to pay.
Pelosi said the legislation will create jobs, strengthen the economy, and give students the ability to compete for scholarships and grants in a more merit- based economy.PALOSI SAYS THE PRESIDENT SHOULD SIGN THE FEDERAL RESCISSION AMENDMENT: He’s wrong.
He’s just lying.
We will not be intimidated by bullies in Congress who don’t know what they’re talking about.
We will not bow to them.
The president has a responsibility to lead the country and to protect his own citizens and his own families.
He has the authority to stop this carnage, and he will.
