Photo for reelection campaign

President Trump’s reelection campaign on Saturday used an image of a survivor of the recent Florida school shooting in an email asking for donations from its supporters.

The email led with an image of Trump and first lady Melania at the bedside of Madeleine Wilford, 17, who was injured in the shooting.

The same photo had been shared on Trump’s official Instagram last week.

“The nation has turned its attention to the senseless school shooting in Parkland, Florida,” the email read.

“The President is now engaging in an important national conversation about school safety and ways to prevent any future attacks. President Trump is taking steps towards banning gun bump stocks and strengthening background checks for gun purchasers,” the email continued.

“The President has made his intent very clear: ‘making our schools and our children safer will be our top priority.’”

Toward the end of the email is a link to donate to the campaign.

CNN first reported on the email. The Hill has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment.

    What exactly is he campaigning for? He has a few years to go till 2020.

    Very poor taste. But I suppose we should expect it from such a crass lowlife like Trump.

    Did he get permission from the survivor or her parents?
