Trump doubles down on call to harden nation’s schools


STANFORD RAPE CASE? THIS IS “SPECIAL REPORT.”>>Bret: GOOD EVENING. WELCOME TO WASHINGTON. I’M BRET BAIER. PRESIDENT TRUMP ELECTRIFIED CONSERVATIVES AT THEIR ANNUAL RETREAT IN SUBURBAN WASHINGTON TODAY. HIS SPEECH READ LIKE A GREATEST HITS FROM THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL. TAX CUTS AND THE ECONOMY, IMMIGRATION AND THE CURRENT CHART TOPPER, SCHOOL SAFETY. THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND GUNS. THE CROWD THERE AT CPAC SEEMED TO LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF THE ONE HOUR, 14 MINUTE SPEECH. PRESIDENT TRUMP UNPLUGGED BUT BIG POLICY CHANGES ALSO RAN THE DAY. CHIEF WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT JOHN ROBERTS STARTS US OFF TONIGHT ON THE NORTH LAWN. GOOD EVENING, JOHN.>>GOOD EVENING TO YOU. NO QUESTION THERE WAS A LOT IN THE PRESIDENT’S SPEECH BUT ONE CURIOUS OMISSION. HIS SUPPORT FOR RAISING THE MINIMUM AGE TO BUY A RIFLE FROM 18 TO 21. NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION, BIG SPONSOR OF CPAC IS FIRMLY OPPOSED TO THAT IDEA. BUT THERE WAS ONE PROPOSAL THAT THE PRESIDENT FLOATED THAT HAD HIM IN LOCKSTEP WITH HIS BASE TODAY. AT THE CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL ACTION CONFERENCE, PRESIDENT TRUMP DOUBLED DOWN ON HIS CALLS FOR QUALIFIED TEACHERS OR STAFF TO BE ARMED AND TRAINED TO RESPOND IN THE EVENT OF A SCHOOL SHOOTING.>>WELL TRAINED! GUN ADEPT TEACHERS AND COACHES AND PEOPLE THAT WORK IN THOSE BUILDINGS, PEOPLE THAT WERE IN THE MARINES FOR 20 YEARS AND RETIRED. PEOPLE IN THE ARMY, THE NAVY, THE AIR FORCE. THE COAST GUARD, PEOPLE THAT ARE ADEPT, ADEPT WITH WEAPONRY AND WITH GUNS.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP INSISTS THAT THE GUN-FREE ZONES THAT DESCRIBE MOST AMERICAN SCHOOLS ARE AN INVITATION FOR KILLERS TO POUNCE. AND THAT THE BEST WAY TO DETER SCHOOL SHOOTINGS IS TO LET POTENTIAL KILLERS KNOW IF THEY ENTER, THEY WILL BE MET WITH A HAIL OF RETURN FIRE.>>IT’S CONCEALED! SO THIS CRAZY MAN WHO WALKED IN WOULDN’T EVEN KNOW WHO IT IS THAT HAS IT. THAT’S GOOD! THAT’S NOT BAD. THAT’S GOOD. AND A TEACHER WOULD HAVE SHOT THE HELL OUT OF HIM BEFORE HE KNEW WHAT HAPPENED.>>THE PROPOSAL WAS MET WITH DIRISION BUT A FREQUENT CRITIC OF THE PRESIDENT.>>COCKPIT LUNACY IS THE WAY TO DESCRIBE THE IDEA OF ARMING 10% TO 40% OF ALL THE TEACHERS IN THIS COUNTRY.>>FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE TEACHERS UNION YESTERDAY, TEACHERS DON’T WANT TO BE ARMED. WE WANT TO TEACH. NO AMOUNT OF TRAINING CAN PREPARE AN ARMED TEACHER TO GO UP AGAINST AN AR-15. ON HIS WAY TO CPAC, PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS ALSO CRITICAL OF THE BROWARD SHERIFF’S DEPUTY WHO STAYED OUTSIDE DOUGLAS HIGH SCHOOL INSTEAD OF RUNNING TOWARDS THE UNFOLDING CARNAGE INSIDE.>>THAT’S THE CASE WHERE SOMEBODY WAS OUTSIDE, THEY’RE TRAINED, THEY DIDN’T REACT PROPERLY UNDER PRESSURE OR THEY WERE A COWARD. IT WAS A REAL SHOCK TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.>>ANOTHER REASON THE PRESIDENT SAID TO HAVE TEACHERS DEFEND THE STUDENTS BECAUSE THEY ARE FAR MORE INVESTED IN THE CHILDREN’S WELFARE.>>THESE TEACHERS LOVE THEIR STUDENTS AND I’D RATHER HAVE SOMEBODY THAT LOVES THEIR STUDENTS AND WANTS TO PROTECT THEIR STUDENTS THAN SOMEBODY STANDING OUTSIDE THAT DOESN’T KNOW ANYBODY AND DOESN’T KNOW THE STUDENTS.>>IN ADDITION TO SCHOOL SHOOTINGS, PRESIDENT TRUMP TODAY ZEROED IN ON ANOTHER THREAT. ANNOUNCING THE BIGGEST PACKAGE OF SANCTIONS YET AGAINST NORTH KOREA TARGETING 27 COMPANIES, 28 SHIPS AND ONE INDIVIDUAL FOR SMUGGLING FUEL AND OTHER SUPPLIES TO SUPPORT NORTH KOREA’S NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM. APPEARING IN THE EAST ROOM WITH AUSTRALIA’S PRIME MINISTER, PRESIDENT TRUMP ISSUED ANOTHER SHARP WARNING TO NORTH KOREA.>>THE SANCTIONS DON’T WORK, WE’LL HAVE TO GO PHASE TWO. AND PHASE TWO MAY BE A VERY ROUGH THING. MAYBE VERY, VERY UNFORTUNATE FOR THE WORLD.>>WITH TODAY THE DAY A NUMBER OF WHITE HOUSE STAFFERS WERE SET CLEARANCE, PRESIDENT TRUMP WEIGHED IN ON THE FACT THAT SON-IN-LAW JARED KUSHNER IS STILL OPERATING WITHOUT HIS FULL SECURITY CLEARANCE.>>WE INHERITED A SYSTEM THAT’S BROKEN. IT’S A BROKEN SYSTEM. AND IT SHOULDN’T TAKE THIS LONG. SO THAT WILL BE UP TO GENERAL KELLY. GENERAL KELLY RESPECTS HIM A LOT AND GENERAL KELLY WILL MAKE THAT CALL. I WON’T MAKE THAT CALL. I WILL LET THE GENERAL WHO IS RIGHT HERE MAKE THAT CALL.>>SOURCES TELL FOX NEWS TONIGHT THAT THE DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL ROD ROSENSTEIN TELEPHONED THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL TWO WEEKS AGO TO SAY THAT JARED KUSHNER’S NOT BE COMPLETED BY THE DEADLINE TODAY. THAT THERE WERE STILL SOME OUTSTANDING ISSUES THAT REQUIRED FURTHER INVESTIGATION BUT WE ARE TOLD TONIGHT FROM WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS THAT JARED KUSHNER STILL MAINTAINS HIS INTERIM SECURITY CLEARANCE. BRET?>>Bret: YOU HEARD THE PRESIDENT SAYING GENERAL KELLY WILL MAKE THAT CALL. THE CHIEF OF STAFF. ALL THE TALK ABOUT WHETHER GENERAL KELLY IS STAYING OR GOING, WHAT IS THE INSIDE SCUTTLEBUTT?>>THE INSIDE SCUTTLEBUTT IS THAT HIS JOB IS SAFE. YOU KNOW, ONE PERSON TOLD ME A WHILE AGO THAT YOU HAVE A PLAYER WHO STAYS OUT UNTIL 4:00 IN THE MORNING AND YOU BENCH HIM AND THAT PLAYER WERE TO BE TOM BRADY, THAT PLAYER WOULD NOT GET

  3. Dan Martin says:

    The left would prefer that the kids hold up text books to stop bullets. But having someone there to defend them is insane! When I was in my early 20s I leaned left. But thank God common sense took over.

  4. Stuart Parkinson says:

    Teacher are making gov org crime muppets anyway, to be fed into the works. Carrying a gun would give away what they really are.

    Young minds are easily influenced by the left, that should be against the law

  10. vwr32jeep says:

    Schools have immediate response plans for every conceivable emergency. Most have a nurse available. The plan to deal with a shooter should be more than cowering in the corner. Teachers are already tasked with keeping the students safe. The coach who used his body to protect the students would likely be alive if he could have STOPPED the shooter rather than stopping the bullets. Let the teachers carry concealed.

  11. Jay Maverick says:

    Long as he's not trying to raise the age limit to 21 and not banning bump stocks. Im with him again!

  12. Dead Farang says:

    Having a teacher with a gun is better than the current situation, until a rogue teacher locks the door and executes all of his students.

  13. sick of liberals says:

    Snow flakes need to join the NRA, learn to be real men and women, liberal women look like men anyway

  14. A Change says:

    Either harden schools, or make the Pentagon and the NSA gun free zones to be fair.

  17. Steve Nelson says:

    Never ever will you people put guns in teachers hands in my kid's schools. It's time to take a new look at the second amendment! Is it time to take the guns from the cold dead hands of you gun freaks? "Well regulated", is the second amendment. It is time to Regulate!

  18. KnightInShiningASMR says:

    ONCE AGAIN, DEMOCRATS WANT TO SPEND YOUR TAXPAYER MONEY PROTECTING ILLEGAL MEXICAN CHILDREN,NOT AMERICAN CHILDREN IN CLASSROOMS.

  19. Wild Biker Bill says:

    I Love Donald J. Trump

    There is another mass shooting…
    The Left does the usual scream and shout about banning guns.

    They never saw the solution being…more guns.
    They never saw the solution being…empowering people to protect themselves.

  23. D E says:

    Another day, another moronic idea from the couch potato in chief. Hey dumbass, quit just watching TV and maybe consult some actual experts for ideas.

  24. Dan Noguera says:

    I got a suggestion, those who agree and support Donald Trump and NRA about arming our school personnel should quit their current jobs and train to be the "good guy with the gun" in schools. Let's see if they can keep themselves from peeing or shitting on their pants on real live gun fight against somebody who has an assault rifle. We dont want to lose another of our beloved teachers. I would rather lose a life of a right wing pundit. Makes sense since they are the one who believes this will work. Sort of sacrificial lambs. Agree? Great!

    The nation's schools are already hard… they are full of hard hearted kids who drive less developed kids to kill.

  27. Steve Nelson says:

    You gun freaks, why do you have to protect your families? Are you drug dealers, do you cut taxes, do you borrow Trillions from overseas, do you send our jobs overseas, do you not pay for your borrowing from overseas? You people are the most ANTI AMERICAN TAX EVADERS !

    Sources: Coral Springs police upset at some Broward deputies for not entering school
    not only that Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff's deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN.

    President Trump is Fun. 😄

  31. L N says:

    Harden?! Wake up woke idiotz. Guns don't kill, people do. Unarmed people DIE.

  32. Rem says:

    Hey, cadet bone spurs… Did you just call someone else a coward? Big words from someone who dodged the draft during the Vietnam war. So shut the fuck up!

  33. Lewrene Lamse says:

    what President Donald Trump , has been saying. Makes a lot of sense, a retired military man or Retired policeman , go to some kind of training , they don't even have to be teachers , they can work as a coach or a janitor , this person would know how to defend our children from all shooter , They should carry a gun that's is concealed , this would make our school A lot safer for our children , If we don't do something shooters are just going to keep on killing our children ,

  34. Oregon Honey says:

    I cannot think of a SINGLE REASON why any parent would send their child to a public school. They have a proven track record of poorly educated graduates, that is, when they graduate at all, they have become mental and physical prisons, they are psychologically unhealthy, they require you to inject DEOMONSTRABLY DANGEROUS VACCINES into their students, and the ONLY thing they have actually succeeded in doing is PROVIDING VERY EXPENSIVE RETIREMENT BENEFITS for administrators. Each child/body count is a revenue generator for THE (failed) SYSTEM. Public education is a cartel, and ALL CARTELS have PROVEN to evolve into corruption, whether it is education, medicine, government. CORRUPTION is the natural progression of power. Haven't we learned that lesson yet? Apparently not. Public education, in this case, was a perfect success, the public can no longer think at all.
    Dumb sheep gonna get what they deserve, too.

  35. Earl Reid says:

    Set up schools like an airport. One way in with an xray machine.

  36. EarlyLove2014 says:

    Yea..! Let's turn Schools into Prisons..! Trump is Totally Delusional..! The AR-15 will make Anybody SHIT THEIR PANTS on the spot..! It is a Diabolic Powerfull Weapon of War..!

  37. Joe Schlotthauer says:

    No person is going to enter a school to shoot anyone, if they even think that just one teacher has a gun. Nope.

  38. RapidRrobert says:

    Tax firearm sales to fund metal detectors at schools and other potential targets.

  39. Michael Rager says:

    Learn about guns. SX3 is way more powerful then a AR15 for example. Google it, watch the video. People can buy that! lol AR15 is just a beginners rifle.

  40. RAZOR WIRE says:

    HARDEN AMERICAN SCHOOLS… HARD SCHOOLS AGAINST TERRORISM IN AMERICA'S HEARTLAND..
    GOD BLESS AMERICA.
    NO GUN CONTROL….

  41. WhyJay4X4 says:

    A pistol could be more effective in that scenario than an AR-15 in trained hands
