President Donald Trump said Monday that he would have charged into a Florida school during the shooting there earlier this month even if he were unarmed.

“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon,” Trump told governors meeting at the White House to discuss school safety.

Trump: I would’ve run into Florida school, ‘even if I didn’t have a weapon’

Trump slammed as “frankly, disgusting” the armed school guard who remained outside the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that left 17 students and teachers dead. The president also criticized several deputies who failed to immediately enter the school, telling the governors that the law enforcement officers “weren’t exactly Medal of Honor winners.”

“The way they performed was really a disgrace,” he said.

Trump also said that armed sheriff’s deputy Scot Peterson, who was on site during the mass shooting there but did not enter, had “choked.” Peterson, who resigned last week after being suspended without pay, pushed back against a wave of criticism for his actions in a Monday statement from his attorney.

President Trump on Monday also defended his proposal that some teachers in schools be armed and trained in the use of firearms, saying he only wanted “highly trained people that have a natural talent [for shooting], like hitting a baseball, or hitting a golf ball, or putting” to handle weapons in schools. The president compared the skill involved in handling firearms to that required for the game of golf, where “some people always make the 4-footer, and some people under pressure can’t even take their club back.”

I hate this novel.
