Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) says President Obama has not yet called him in the wake of a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando.
"He has not called us," Scott said Tuesday on "Fox and Friends."
"A staffer has called, but no, he has not called."
Scott criticized Obama's approach to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), saying after the Orlando shooting, "If not now, when are we going to take this seriously?"
"When are we going to say enough is enough and say we are absolutely going to destroy ISIS, we're going to stop the evil out of radical Islam? We've got to at some point say, is 49 enough? How many more can there be?"
Omar Mateen, who gunned down 49 people and injured 53 more, reportedly claimed allegiance to ISIS during the attack.

"The Second Amendment didn't kill anybody. Evil, radical Islam, ISIS — they killed. We have got to start standing up for our country," Scott said, voicing support for vetting migrants to the U.S.
Trump on Monday took a similar approach, emphasizing scrutiny of those entering the U.S. The gunman, Omar Mateen, was born in New York to Afghan immigrants and lived in Florida.
Scott also claimed the White House refused to provide information on Syrian refugees being resettled in his state, citing privacy reasons.
"I'm fed up," Scott said.
