The suspect, identified as 42-year-old Jonathan Oddi, was yelling about Trump when Miami-Dade and City of Doral police officers responded to the scene, a police spokesperson was quoted as saying by the Hill magazine.

Oddi was in stable condition after being shot in an exchange of fire with police, said Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez. A Doral police officer suffered broken bones but was not shot.

The gunman took a flag from a pole in the rear of the resort complex, brought it into the lobby, draped it over a counter, yelled rhetoric against Trump and fired a gun into the air — at the roof and chandeliers, Perez said.

He then “waited for officers to engage him”, the officer said. Perez said the man’s immediate motive seemed to be to lure police into a gunfight. “He did succeed (in luring police), and he did lose.”

The President’s son, Eric Trump, tweeted his thanks to the Miami-area Police Department following the incident.

Secret Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were working with the local police on investigating the incident, which was being treated as a state crime rather than a federal crime.

US President Donald Trump has left people astonished with his knowledge of space and the universe and has become a laughing stock yet again after he claimed that the moon is a part of Mars.

In a tweet on Friday, he said: “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defence and Science.”

Trump’s remarks came a day after NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told USA Today that US astronauts would not be able to make a lunar landing by 2024 unless Trump administration’s $1.6 billion budget increase request is not approved by the US Congress.

As soon as Trump tweeted, people from around the world started trolling him with witty one-liners, jokes and memes.

“Sigh! His dad must have paid his way through astronomy class too!” wrote American long-distance runner Ryan Hill.

“Trump’s knowledge on this matter is one small step for man, one giant leap backwards for mankind,” said Emmy-nominated filmmaker Jeremy Newberger.

“Based on the President’s track record here on Earth, I don’t think NASA needs his input on how to handle space,” tweeted Sam Vinograd, national security analyst at CNN.

Earlier in May, Trump, who is infamous for making controversial statements, war threats and spelling errors on his Twitter handle, confessed that he uses Twitter as a “typewriter”.

Later, Twitter Co-founder, Ev Williams called Trump “master” of the platform, arguing the potential negative effects of the President’s tweets on the country’s political discourse are “trivial compared to the effect of the broader media”.
