BUSINESS INSIDER — Florida Gov. Rick Scott said on Tuesday that President Barack Obama has not called him after the worst terrorist attack on US soil – which took place in Scott’s home state – since September 11, 2001.
“No. He has not called,” the Republican governor told “Fox & Friends.”
Scott noted that a “staffer has called,” but reiterated that Obama has “not called.”
A lone gunman who pledged allegiance to ISIS carried out the deadliest mass shooting in US history early on Sunday morning when he opened fire at the Pulse nightclub. At least 49 people were killed in the attack.
It’s typically commonplace for the president to call the governor of a state after such catastrophic events.
Scott said that he received a call from former President George W. Bush, who said that he and former first lady Laura Bush “were praying for us.”
Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, also phoned him, Scott said.
“He called. He called to just ask how I was doing, say, you know, like everybody else is praying for us,” Scott said.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday afternoon from Business Insider.
