New York Daily News Rips Donald Trump For Visiting Golf Course During Florida Funerals

"May I play thru?"

The New York Daily News tore into President Donald Trump for visiting his Florida golf course while funerals for the Parkland school massacre victims were taking place “just miles away.”

For its Tuesday cover, the tabloid used a photograph of Trump giving a thumbs up alongside a picture of pallbearers carrying the casket of one of the 17 victims:

The president visited Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach for several hours on Monday. White House officials have not confirmed whether Trump was golfing during that period, but did say that he avoided playing over the weekend as a mark of respect.

Last Friday, Trump met with victims who were injured in the mass shooting. He also posed for photographs with the police officers and medical staff who responded to the massacre. He was later criticized for his “thumbs-up” poses.
