A photograph of Mr Trump’s note card during his meeting with Florida shooting survivors have caused a stir on social media.
The image shows the talking questions and points Mr Trump wished to discuss with the survivors, including “what would you most want me to know about experience?” and “what can we do to help you feel safe?”.
It was point number five that set social media alight – “I hear you.”
“When you need a note card on how to be a human being. Jesus Christ, Trump is a worthless s *** bag,” one Twitter user said.
“Trump has to have notes that remind him to have empathy and compassion,” another wrote online.
Bloomberg’s White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs said Mr Trump did not even use the response written down for him, instead opting for “I just grieve for you” and “nothing worse”.
Discussion around the note card has caused such a debate online that the hashtag, “I hear you’, has started to take off on Twitter.
People have labelled Mr Trump as “ignorant and self-centred” for having to reminded to say “I hear you“.
During the meeting, Mr Trump vowed to take steps to improve background checks for gun buyers and arming teachers in the wake of last week’s deadly Florida shooting.
A gunman opened fire at Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, killing 17 people.
The shooting has sparked a movement across high schools in the US with Florida survivors spearheading the push for gun control.
