President Trump has been critical of the FBI after the agency admitted to not following up on a tip about Nikolas Cruz, who killed 17 people at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida earlier this month.

He and his supporters have also been critical of the FBI over its investigation into whether Russia meddled in the 2016 election, and whether the Trump campaign was involved with that in any way.
