When It's Actually Trump Tweeting, It's Way Angrier

Following reports of the shooting of Dwyane Wade's cousin, Nykea Aldridge, in Chicago on Friday, Donald Trump posted on Twitter Saturday morning citing the news as a reason that African-Americans will vote for his candidacy.

Aldridge, 32, was shot and killed while pushing her baby in a stroller approximately a mile and half west of the University of Chicago. Aldridge was caught in the crossfire when two men attempted to kill a third man near Aldridge. Her child was not hurt in the shooting.

Chicago currently has one of the highest murder rates among major cities in the US, outpacing New York and Los Angeles. The city recorded 381 homicides by the end of the July, 30 percent higher than the same period in 2015.

For those who enjoy starting Saturday with tasteless, horrific self-involved tweets from the GOP nominee here... https://t.co/TAkvbOllq4

Vile comment devoid of empathy. Reminiscent of when he congratulated himself after the Orlando massacre. https://t.co/Xg6tzNZE8F
At least he came closer than Jeb Bush to spelling Wade's name correctly https://t.co/FUi3kp8hJ5
I often wonder if Trump has a clue what he's trying to convey. https://t.co/teJtEneEU1
Donald Trump just made his worst tweet yet https://t.co/ZXADAJl4Iq https://t.co/2bYjwZz1vo
Not from The Onion. Real tweet. https://t.co/Ii3kyx7sEy
