PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) — A grieving mother who directed her anger at President Donald Trump on live television after the Florida school shooting isn't done shouting. And she's made it personal, invoking the president's 11-year-old son, Barron.

Lori Alhadeff spoke Friday in a CNN interview before the funeral for her 14-year-old daughter Alyssa.

She said, "President Trump, Barron goes to school. Let's protect Barron. And let's also protect all these other kids."

Then her voice raised to a shout as she said "You need to help us, now. We need security now for all these children. We need Action, Action, Action!"
