The Pulse and Parkland shootings: Why was 1 cop called hero, the other arrested? ORLANDO, Fla. - When Orlando police Officer Adam Gruler saw a shooter at the gay nightclub Pulse three years ago, he fired his handgun at him but did not pursue him inside, even as the gunman blasted a dance floor full of clubgoers with bullets from a high-powered rifle, killing 49. Broward Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson made a similar choice last year when he stayed outside of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as a gunman rampaged through the campus, killing 17 people. Gruler was hailed as a hero by local officials and attended the State of the Union address as an honored guest.

Hours before President Trump is set to kickoff his 2020 reelection campaign in Orlando, the city’s largest news organization announced they are endorsing whoever challenges Trump in the general election regardless of who it is.

“We’re here to announce our endorsement for president in 2020, or, at least, who we’re not endorsing: Donald Trump,” the Orlando Sentinel said in its Tuesday staff editorial. “Because there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump.”

The Evangelical, the ‘Pool Boy,’ the Comedian and Michael Cohen Senator Ted Cruz was running neck and neck with Donald J. Trump in Iowa just before the caucuses in 2016, but his campaign was expecting a last-minute boost from a powerful endorser, Jerry Falwell Jr. Mr. Falwell was chancellor of one of the nation’s largest Christian colleges, Liberty University, and a son of the Rev. Jerry Falwell Sr., the televangelist and co-founder of the modern religious right. Months earlier, Mr. Falwell had provided Liberty’s basketball arena for Mr. Cruz’s formal presidential announcement and required that the student body attend, giving the Texas Republican a guaranteed audience of thousands of cheering young religious conservatives.

The Orlando Sentinel published a lengthy op-ed on Tuesday outlining the reasons they do not plan to endorse Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. " Trump ’s successful assault on truth is the great casualty of this presidency, followed closely by his war on decency," the Sentinel piece continued.

The Orlando Sentinel published an editorial Tuesday condemning Trump 's presidency ahead of his 2020 campaign launch in the city later in the day. And while the editorial admits some may find it difficult to eliminate a candidate before identifying an opponent, the paper wrote "there’s no point pretending

After nearly three years, the paper’s editorial board said it has seen enough.

“Enough of the chaos, the division, the schoolyard insults, the self-aggrandizement, the corruption, and especially the lies,” they said. “So many lies — from white lies to whoppers — told out of ignorance, laziness, recklessness, expediency or opportunity.”

In a public shaming of people who voted for the president in 2016, the Sentinel called out what it described as a troubling “tolerance” for Trump’s divisive rhetoric.

“Trump’s capacity for lying isn’t the surprise here,” it said. “Though the frequency is. It’s the tolerance so many Americans have for it.”

Fans of the president began lining up outside the city’s Amway Center as early as Monday afternoon for the Trump campaign kickoff rally, which begins at 8 p.m. EST.

Hours before President Trump was due to hold a rally in Orlando billed as the kickoff to his reelection campaign, the Orlando Sentinel announced who it is endorsing for president in 2020 : not Donald Trump .

In an early-morning tweet Tuesday, the president complained that the so-called “Fake News” media does not focus enough on the support he and other Republicans have from voters.

He cited the crowd gathered outside the Orlando venue as evidence of his popularity.

“Republican enthusiasm is at an all time high,” Trump said. “Look what is going on in Orlando, Florida, right now! People have never seen anything like it (unless you play a guitar). Going to be wild.”

But the Orlando Sentinel said they and the people of Central Florida are tired of Trump and his supporters.

“The nation must endure another 1½ years of Trump. But it needn’t suffer another four beyond that,” it said. “We can do better. We have to do better.”

OSAKA, Japan — President Trump plunged back into the world of international diplomacy on Friday with characteristic provocation, keeping some of America’s closest allies, including his hosts, off balance even as he sought advantage on an array of economic and security disputes with profound consequences.
