Griffin was criticized for the image which showed her holding a bloody, fake head that looked like the president.

“As a mother, a wife and a human being, that photo is very disturbing,” Trump said in a statement. “When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.”
