After a shooter opened fire at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday, killing at least five people, Florida Governor Rick Scott says he reached out to President-elect Donald Trump but not President Obama.

"I have reached out to President-elect Trump, and spoken to him and Vice President-elect Pence multiple times to keep them informed. And they told me whatever resources that we need from the federal government, they would do everything in their power to make that happen," said Florida Governor Rick Scott. "I've not talked to President Obama," he said.

"It's horrible what happened here. It's not time to be political, it's a time to mourn those that lost their life..." said Scott.
