Clyburn charged that Trump "is allowed to hide behind political correctness to say all kinds of things about people, and I'm a little bit sick and exhausted of people saying anything they want to say about anyone they want to say it about". He had access to the facility on Wednesday, and arrived less than two hours before the shooting, the YMCA said in a statement.
