It didn’t take long for Trump to be back on the golf course.

On Monday, Trump returned to his usual rounds of golf while about an hour away the funeral for 15-year-old Luke Hoyer was scheduled at 11 a.m.

Hoyer was one of the 17 victims who was killed during the school shooting on Valentine’s Day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Fourteen-year-old Alaina Petty was also being laid to rest today.

However, Trump decided to play golf instead rather than attending their funerals or working to make changes so this doesn’t happen again.

Trump’s return to the golf course comes just two days after he fished for credit after skipping a day of golf to show “respect for the dead and the mourners.”

David Hogg, one of the student survivors of the shooting, criticized Trump for returning to the golf course.

Since the shooting, Hogg has spoken out against Trump. Hogg wrote, “This is atrocious, golf over children’s blood?!?! What does that say about our future. You are either for or against the children and right now your against them. This is why we must take action because these politicians won’t.”

Trump has been keeping under the radar since his “35-minute” visit to the hospital of the shooting victims on Friday. He spent most of his time talking to law enforcement and EMTs. Also, just hours after his visit to the hospital, Donald and Melania were seen at a disco themed party.

Trump’s golf course visit has received heavy criticism from many. So far, he has avoided discussing gun legislation of any sort.

The only thing Trump and the White House has done was announce that there will be a “listening session” with the students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday.
