Trump campaign uses image of Fla. shooting survivor in email asking for donations

President Trump’s reelection campaign on Saturday used an image of a survivor of the recent Florida school shooting in an email asking for donations from its supporters.

The email led with an image of Trump and first lady Melania at the bedside of Madeleine Wilford, 17, who was injured in the shooting.


“The nation has turned its attention to the senseless school shooting in Parkland, Florida,” the email reads.
“Trump is taking steps toward banning gun bump stocks and strengthening background checks for gun purchasers,” it says. “The President has made his intent very clear: ‘making our schools and our children safer will be our top priority.'”

Near the end of the message, there’s a link to the campaign’s donations page.
The campaign did not immediately return CNN’s request for comment.

There’s your latest Trump-GOP fundraising tactic: monetize the victims for political gain. Classy, Donald, very classy.
