WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama says the nightclub shooting in Orlando was an “act of terror” and an “act of hate.”
He says the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism and that no effort will be spared to determine whether the shooter was affiliated with terrorist groups.
Obama is speaking at the White House after 49 people were killed overnight at a nightclub in Florida.
Obama is noting that the killer targeted a gay nightclub. He says it’s a “sobering reminder” that an attack on any American is an attack “on all of us.”
