Donald Trump: ‘I’m not advocating guns in classrooms’ but ‘teachers should have guns in classrooms’

Published

on

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump refuted Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton by insisting that he was “not advocating guns in classrooms,” but at the same time argued that “teachers should have guns in classrooms.”

On Sunday’s edition of Fox & Friends, host Clayton Morris pointed out that Hillary Clinton had recently attacked Trump for his position that “every school” in American should have guns in classroom.

“They’re just words,” Trump scoffed in response. “And she talked about guns in classrooms. I don’t want to have guns in classrooms. Although in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly. Because teachers are — things that are going on in our schools are unbelievable.”

“But I’m not advocating guns in classrooms,” he added. “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.”

According to Trump, his recent endorsement from the National Rifle Association was one of the most important endorsements in politics.

“I went to make a speech to the NRA,” he said of his speech to last week’s NRA Leadership Forum. “They were giving standing ovations for every other sentence.”

“In some cases, they don’t even endorse,” Trump opined. “Probably the most powerful endorsement in all of politics. I was honored by it.”

Harris, complained Trump, was the "meanest and most disrespectful person in the U.S. Senate." He particularly dwelled on her sharp interrogation of Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court hearings.

Trump also added that she "lied" about a number of issues, claimed repeatedly she wants to raise taxes, said she is for "open borders and sanctuary cities ... which is also protecting a large number of criminals," and that she would destroy the Second Amendment.
