On 20 January, inauguration day in the United States, a nameless, unknown military aide accompanied President Barack Obama to the handover ceremony at the US Capitol in Washington.
That military aide carried a satchel over his or her shoulder containing a briefcase known as “the nuclear football“.
Inside will be a piece of digital hardware measuring 3in (7.3cm) by 5in, known as “the biscuit“.
This contains the launch codes for a strategic nuclear strike.
The briefing for the ‘so-called president‘ on how to activate them took place out of public sight, but the moment Drumpf took the oath of office that aide, and the satchel, moved quietly over to his side.
On June 12, 2016, a 29-year-old security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack/hate crime inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States. He was shot and killed by Orlando Police Department (OPD) officers after a three-hour standoff.
Pulse was hosting Latin Night and most of the victims were Latino.
It was both the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in United States history. It was also the deadliest terrorist attack in the United States since the September 11 attacks in 2001.
‘In the arms of an Angel fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here … ‘
