President Donald Trump was in Florida Friday meeting with first responders and victims of the shooting who are still hospitalized. This is not acceptable.

"Now is the time to get on the right side of this, because this is not something that we are going to let sweep under the carpet", she said on Meet the Press.

The FBI was told in early January that Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old man charged with killing 17 persons, almost all students, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., had collected an arsenal of guns, and he had expressed a desire to kill people, behaved erratically and had posted disturbing social-media messages.

In January, a person close to Cruz called the FBI's public tipline and raised concerns about his gun ownership, desire to kill and warned of a possible school shooting.

"Under normal protocol this information should've been provided to the Miami field office", FBI Special Agent Robert Lasky said in a statement.

But the agency admitted that it failed to investigate. It was the same type of firearm that's been used in many mass shootings, including in Las Vegas past year, Orlando in 2016 and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012.

Trump's tweet also comes after special counsel Robert Mueller's team charged 13 Russian nationals and three Russian organisations for attempted to sow discord in the 2016 USA presidential election. The FBI reportedly received several tips from concerned citizens about Cruz, but did not follow up.

The president also praised the FBI's response to the shooting despite Florida Gov. Rick Scott's demand that FBI Director Christopher Wray resign over the bureau's admittance that it failed to follow proper procedures when it received tips about the shooter's violent tendencies.

Nevertheless, personnel at the FBI's call center would "absolutely not" ever be working on the Russian Federation case, the official said.

Mueller's investigation has so far swept up four members of Trump's campaign, with two agreeing to work for the probe under a plea deal.

According to a new report from BuzzFeed News, three students who knew Nikolas Cruz, the Florida school shooting suspect, said they reported him to the school administration for threatening them after Cruz's ex-girlfriend broke up with him and started dating someone else.

"This is a commmunity and a state that is a deep pain and they want action to make sure this doesn't happen again", Rubio said.
