The shooter is apparently Omar Saddiqui Mateen, an American-born man of Afghan descent, who was from Port St. Lucie, Florida but was in Orlando to commit the crime.

According to Mateen's father, who spoke to the media on Sunday morning, the shooter apparently witnessed two men kissing in downtown Miami recently, and he became 'very upset' at the sight of it.

From there, the father alleges, the attack in Orlando has 'nothing to do with religion' and instead, at least according to Mateen's dad, may point to a hate crime.

It all started on April 6 when Makhzoomi, who was in Los Angeles waiting to take off for Oakland, called his uncle who lives in Baghdad to tell the relative all about his meeting with the U.N. Secretary-General:

How would President Donald Trump handle the type of crisis Brussels is dealing with in the wake of deadly terror attacks?

That's what TODAY hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie asked the leading GOP Presidential candidate Tuesday morning.

Trump started off by explaining how not allowing "certain people" into the country in the first place would help — not too far from his normal xenophobic platform.

But next he suggested that as President he would seek to "expand the laws" to allow more torture of suspects, saying:

"Frankly, the waterboarding, if it was up to me, and if we changed the laws or had the laws, waterboarding would be fine. If they could expand the laws, I would do a lot more than waterboarding. You have to get the information from these people."

So the CEO sat down with ABC News to explain in depth why the corporation would not create a backdoor into people's phones for the government, saying:

"We know that doing this could expose people to incredible vulnerabilities. This is not something that we would create. This would be bad for America. It would also set a precedent that I believe many people in America would be offended by."

Powerful words. Do YOU agree this would endanger all Americans' rights?
