“I am stunned, outraged, and deeply saddened by the news that my friend [Shinzo Abe], former Prime Minister of Japan, was shot and killed while campaigning,” the White House statement read. The president’s untimely response was also insensitive, as it mentioned the issue of gun violence after offering condolences to Japan.
Shinzo Abe was assassinated approximately midnight ET. Former President Trump posed about the shooting an hour later. At 5am ET he posted about his death. As of 8:30ET – not a word from Biden or the White House.— Chris Stigall (@ChrisStigall) July 8, 2022
Even though he ordered the American flag at the White House to be flown at half-staff until Sunday, Sleepy Joe’s lack of timeliness in the first place shows how inept his administration really is. Thankfully, Trump was there to save America’s image at a time of great tragedy in the world. [firefly_poll] CNN reported that the former Japanese prime minister first met Trump in New York City, shortly after the 2016 election, and the two became close allies thereafter. After Trump hosted Abe twice at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, Abe returned the courtesy by hosting Trump and his family in Japan. Abe even invited Trump and his wife Melania to a sumo wrestling match to show his appreciation for their close friendship. While tragedy struck Abe and Japan, Trump offered his condolences on behalf of America. If this event shows us anything, it’s that Biden is half the leader that Trump was while in office.

It took Joe Biden nearly 12 hours to respond to the assassination of Shinzo Abe, and he managed to make his shooting — committed by a homemade gun in a country with some of the strictest gun laws on the planet — about American gun violence https://t.co/ZhPf8UJUP7— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) July 8, 2022
