President Trump’s re-election campaign used a photo of a survivor of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting in an email asking for donations from its supporters.
The email, sent Saturday, featured a photo of 17-year-old Madeleine Wilford, who was injured in the shooting, in a hospital bed surrounded by her family, Trump and the first lady. The same photo had been shared on Trump’s official Instagram last week, CNN reports.
The President visited Wilford on February 16, two days after the attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left 17 dead.
“The nation has turned its attention to the senseless school shooting in Parkland, Florida,” the email read.
“The President is now engaging in an important national conversation about school safety and ways to prevent any future attacks. President Trump is taking steps towards banning gun bump stocks and strengthening background checks for gun purchasers,” the email continued.
“The President has made his intent very clear: ‘making our schools and our children safer will be our top priority.’”
Toward the end of the email is a link to donate to the campaign.
The Trump campaign did not return a Political Dig request for comment.
