Days after the Orlando shooting massacre, Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi is still waiting on a call from the president.

President Obama had not called Bondi or Florida’s Republican Gov. Rick Scott following Sunday’s deadly shooting at a gay nightclub, which left 49 people dead and more than 50 wounded, Fox News reported.

There was “no contact” made yet by the White House, Bondi said, responding to a question about the level of communication with the president.

“He has had no contact with me nor do I believe he’s contacted our governor at all,” Bondi told Brian Kilmeade on “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday. She noted that they would be more than happy to meet with Obama if he asked, but so far have only been in contact with federal “boots on the ground,” like FBI investigators.

When asked if she was disappointed in the lack of communication, Bondi replied, “Of course we are.”

“This isn’t about politics right now. This is about Americans,” she said. “I believe he should have reached out to the governor of the state of Florida, and he hasn’t.”

The president is scheduled to be in Orlando on Thursday, Fox reported.
