Donald Trump called for impeachment of U.S. President Barack Obama after the deadly shooting in Las Vegas.
In a tweet Thursday morning, the Republican presidential nominee called for a full investigation into the incident that killed at least 58 people and injured nearly 500 others.
The president has repeatedly suggested that he is being unfairly targeted by the investigation, which has focused heavily on the role that the Obama administration played in the shooting and the broader anti-Trump narrative surrounding the event.
“Why is it that all of a sudden all of these stories about me are suddenly being investigated, and I’m not even being investigated?
Why is it?”
“You can say anything you want about this.
But look, we’re gonna look at it, and we’re going to see what happens.
This is being investigated by the special prosecutor, who has a very good track record, who is looking into this.”
Trump’s tweet was a reference to the investigation being conducted by former FBI Director Robert Mueller.
The Trump campaign later said that it was “proud” to have Trump’s support.
“Trump was one of many Americans who came out in solidarity with the victims and their families,” campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in a statement.
“The president is proud to have endorsed the support of President Trump’s family and friends, who will be working tirelessly to support the investigation.
We are grateful for his support.”
