President Obama on Thursday travelled to Orlando, Florida on Thursday to meet with survivors and families of victims of Sunday’s massacre at gay nightclub Pulse.

NBC News reports: 

Obama, along with Vice President Joe Biden, were greeted by Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, who presented the president with a T-shirt featuring a rainbow heart and the hashtag #OrlandoUnited.

The White House said the afternoon visit will be private with the families, and Obama will “stand in solidarity with the Orlando community.”
