    In Donald Trump's first formal response Monday to the Orlando massacre, he said that the attack is a result of U.S. immigration policy.

    He also attacked presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for her position on guns, immigration and intelligence gathering. Trump also directed his ire the Obama administration, NBC News reported.

    "Even our own FBI director has admitted that we cannot effectively check the backgrounds of the people we are letting into America," he said.

    NBC News fact checked many of Trump's claims, including that Clinton plans a "500 percent increase in Syrian refugees," she would abolish the Second Amendment as president and that Trump can suspend immigration from many areas of the world.
