Teachers who are trained should be able to have guns in classrooms, at least that’s the latest from Donald Trump.
Trump, who’s now being called the ‘presumptive’ Republican nominee for president, went on “Fox & Friends” over the weekend to respond to an attack from Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and stir up some controversy. He succeeded at both..
In the typical straightforward manner he is accustomed to using, Trump took to the phone to call in his point.
“I don’t want to have guns in classrooms,” said Trump, who then added “although in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms.”
Clinton’s speech at a fundraiser Saturday, which prompted the response, was a contrast both visually and in delivery.
“He’d mandate that every school in America allow guns in classrooms,” Clinton said in a sort of “John Wayne” style slow delivery, a departure from her usual shrill shouting.
“That’s no way to keep us safe. You want to imagine what Trump’s America looks like, picture more kids at risk of violence and bigotry. Picture more anger and fear,” Clinton added.
Clinton’s attack came just after the National Rifle Association officially endorsed Trump, citing the irreparable damage a President Hillary Clinton would likely do to the Second Amendment and gun rights.
Trump immediately slammed Clinton’s scenario as “just words” read off of a teleprompter.
Trump went on to defend his position, “You look at some of schools, unbelievable whats going on. But I’m not advocating guns in classrooms. But remember, in some cases — a lot of people have made this case — teachers should be able to have guns. Trained teachers should be able to have guns in classrooms.”
