Trump said: "Because our leaders are weak, I said this was going to happen - and it is only going to get worse." "I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist attack. We can't afford to be politically correct anymore," Trump said in a statement.

Trump had earlier called for a ban on Muslims entering the USA, for which he drew massive criticism. However, after the Orlando shooting, he said: "I called it and asked for the ban. Must be tough."
