While there is still a ton of controversy regarding the recent nightclub shooting that happened at Pulse, a popular nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Trump temporarily benefited from the incident. In a poll that was released last week, it appeared as though potential voters were being swayed by what Trump had to say about the shooting and who was responsible.

In addition to blaming radical Islamic terrorism, Trump furthered his stance to build the wall and prevent new Muslims from coming into the United States. While Trump called the ban temporary, and stated that he only wanted it in place until a better screening process could be implemented, many felt as though he was taking it too far. It seemed like certain people changed their mind and agreed with his stance after the Orlando massacre, though.
