Barbara Streisand links Florida shooting to Trump because he ‘brings out the violence in people’

Barbra Streisand is tying this month’s tragic high school shooting in Florida to America’s Republican president.

The singer-actress told Variety she believes President Trump “brings out the violence in people,” including Stoneman Douglas High School shooter Nikolas Cruz.

“I think even that shooter was affected because Trump brings out the violence in people. He says, ‘It’s OK — rally, lock her up'” Streisand argued, referring to the famous refrain from the president’s campaign rallies.

The “Funny Girl” actress, who was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama, also stoked theories that President Trump did not legitimately win the 2016 election.

“I really believe [Clinton] won the election,” Streisand asserted. “I’ve talked to senators from Michigan and Wisconsin. I do believe, like I believed during Bush, they were playing with those voter machines.”

The two-time Oscar winner has been a frequent critic of President Trump.

In July, she wrote a Huffington Post article in which she called the commander-in-chief “The Fake President.”

Last Spring, Streisand blamed the president for her unwanted weight gain.

Streisand’s blaming of President Trump for the Florida shooting was met with censure.
