It was just a month ago that Republican nominee Donald Trump was making national headlines after claiming he could not remember the names of the children who were killed in an Ohio church shooting.
“I didn’t say that, I was only saying that I could not recall the names,” he told reporters.
The Republican nominee was quick to blame the incident on President Barack Obama.
“The president has been in office for the last eight years and he has a history of lying to the American people,” Trump said.
“And he should be ashamed of himself.”
Trump also said that he could have been talking about the Orlando shootings and said that the president had been “very violent” and “not very smart.”
The Trump campaign later said that Trump was only making a “poor choice” when he used the words “children.”
Trump has since apologized for the remark, saying that he had been wrong about the incident and that he “was talking about politics.”
The Republican presidential nominee was also the subject of an investigation by the FBI in 2017 after it was revealed that he’d made disparaging remarks about former President Bill Clinton in an earlier interview.
But the investigation never found any evidence that he was in direct violation of the Hatch Act, which bars federal officials from discussing confidential government business with the media.
The investigation was closed after Trump stepped aside in February.
Trump also has been criticized for his comments about Mexican immigrants.
The Trump administration has been working on a plan to remove a wall along the southern border and to build a fence on the U.S.-Mexico border, which would make it easier for undocumented immigrants to cross the border.
“We’re building a great wall,” Trump told Fox News last week.
“You have a wall on the southern half, we have a big wall on that border, so we’re going to build that wall on both sides.”
Trump told ABC News that the wall was not a problem.
“It is not a very difficult thing to do,” he said.
