President Obama will visit Orlando Thursday

President Barack Obama will visit Orlando Thursday to pay his respect to victims' families and stand in solidarity with the community, his spokesman said.

No further details about his trip have been released yet.

Gov. Rick Scott hasn't spoken directly with Obama and has no additional details about his trip.

"The only president who has reached out is George W Bush," Scott spokeswoman Jackie Schutz said. "Last night he spoke with Valerie Jarrett in the White House." 
 
Jarrett is a senior adviser to Obama. The president said at the White House Sunday that he had spoken to Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.

Fifty people were killed and 53 injured in a shooting massacre at Pulse nightclub Saturday night.
