Reaction on Twitter:
This statement directly ties Trump’s words to the violent actions and is unassailable. Very politically effective.

This was good but FAR more powerful: she was the only speaker to leave the stage and embrace a gun survivor. This matters. People want to see and feel connection to their president.
