Trump late Saturday tweeted about the shooting, saying it was not acceptable that the FBI missed "many signals" sent out by the alleged gunman.

"Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!" he tweeted.

The FBI said Friday it failed to follow "protocols" when it received a tip earlier this year about 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who officials say killed 17 people and injured 14 others last week in Parkland, Fla.

A person close to Cruz called the FBI's public tipline and raised concerns about him in January, the bureau said.

But the FBI never reported the tip to its Miami field office of investigated the claim, it added.

Multiple lawmakers have called for Congress to act to prevent another tragedy following the shooting.
