In the wake of two mass shootings in a 24-hour period in the United States, Apple CEO Tim Cook has said he’s “heartbroken” over what has happened, expressing his support for those affected by the shootings, and says politicians need to “address this violence for the good of our country.”

Two mass shootings took place over the weekend. On Saturday, a gunman killed 20 people and injured 26 at a shopping mall in El Paso, Texas. Following the shooting, Tim Cook tweeted prayers for the El Paso victims and their families, and praised first responders.


A second shooting took place on Sunday in Dayton, Ohio where a gunman killed killed nine people (including his own sister), and wounded another 27 victims. Cook also tweeted prayers for those victims and also praised first responders in that situation.


Almost immediately following his tweet about the Dayton shooting, Cook posted a third tweet,  saying “I’m heartbroken about what’s happening in my country.”


“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results,” Cook continued. “It’s time for good people with different views to stop finger pointing and come together to address this violence for the good of our country.”

Apple CEO Tim Cook regularly expresses his condolences, sending prayer to victims of mass shootings, emergencies, and natural tragedies on Twitter.
