Donald Trump predicted that more attacks like the Orlando nightclub massacre will happen.
The presumptive Republican candidate announced his thoughts on Twitter.
Trump made similar comments during a speech in Atlanta
June 15 when he said that "it's going to happen again and again and again—because we're not doing what we're supposed to be doing."
He said his predictions would be proved correct, but "I don't want to be right."
"We're having horrible things happen where we're allowing people into our country that don't deserve to be in our country, and bad things are happening," he added, bringing up immigration issues.
Trump went on record about the massacre the day after, when the likely Republican presidential candidate warned that terrorists would attack the United States and "there will be nothing, absolutely nothing left," according to the New York Times
Political consultants criticized that speech. Republican consultant Rick Wilson said, "You want to be sure that you're respecting the dead and communicating a message that is policy-driven. Not just, you know a knee-jerk kind of compulsive reaction to the event," according to a Politico report
Another Republican consultant, Alex Patton, told Politico that Trump's stance does not bode well for his election chances.
"If his goal is to grow his voting base past his rapid hardcore believers, then he is messaging like a complete idiot with a galling lack of empathy."
Republican officials said little after Trump's speech, according to NBC News
. House Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, "I'm not going to be commenting on the presidential candidates today."
Trump also tweeted a call to "make America safe again," along with his catch phrase.
