Trump said that he spoke to victims of the attack, and praised the performance of the doctors, claiming that they did "an incredible job."
Trump is expected to also visit the Broward County Sheriff's Office to meet with the law enforcement officers who responded to the shooting which left 17 dead and 14 injured.
The shooting was allegedly perpetrated by 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a former student who had been expelled for "disciplinary reasons."
Shortly after news of the shooting broke, Trump offered his condolences to the affected families and said he was coordinating with the Florida governor's office and law enforcement to resolve the situation.
