March Rallies Presidential Hopefuls, While Trump Stays Silent

Hundreds of thousands of people came together on March 24 for March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., along with 800+ sibling marches across the globe, to urge members of Congress to take action to stem gun violence in schools.

The demonstration—led mainly by teenagers from all over the country—was a hot topic of Twitter discussion for the 26 potential Democratic presidential candidates we’re tracking; however, it failed to draw the same attention from the president himself.

Trump stayed silent on the issue last week, with no gun- or march-related tweets. His potential 2020 challengers, on the other hand, together had about 60 tweets on the issue.
