    Due to the Sunday's deadly Orlando shooting, US President Barack Obama has postponed a trip to Green Bay, State of Wisconsin, where he intended to speak at a pre-election event together with US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, a White House representative said.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The representative told reporters that all additional information regarding the president's schedule would be given later.

    The mass shooting occurred on Sunday at Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando. The city's Mayor Buddy Dyer confirmed that at least 50 people were killed and 53 more were injured in the shooting.

    The Orlando massacre has become the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States, surpassing the death toll from the 2007 incident at Virginia Tech, which claimed 32 lives.

    The attack was conducted by US national Omar Saddiqui Mateen and could have links to radical Islamist groups, according to US media. Mateen was killed by the police at the scene of events.
