Three weeks after a mass shooting that left 17 dead at Parkland High School, Donald Trump sent his Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to meet with teachers and students to discuss any concerns or issues they might have — but not everyone there was looking forward to the visit.

Upon her visit, DeVos sparked criticism and backlash from shooting survivors and many advocates on social media. Many of those nascent activists have focused their criticism on the National Rifle Association and politicians, but DeVos hasn’t escaped their notice. Several students took to Twitter to on Tuesday to express their opinions on the so-called education official.

Here are some of the reactions:

Since her visit created such an uproar, DeVos decided to walk out of her own press conference. According to the White House, the education official’s meeting with the press was closed “out of respect for the students and faculty.” The Education Department released that statement after student survivors criticized her immensely. Isn’t that ironic? The fact that she is unable to answer simple questions on such a pressing issue just shows the lack of intelligence she has in her position. Instead, DeVos pulls the deflect and retreat tactic, a move that every sketchy Republican has mastered.
