MSLM misreporting? Business as usual.
President Trump said Thursday that CNN and NBC reported “fake news” when they aired segments saying he wanted to give teachers guns to protect students.
“I never said 'give teachers guns' like was stated on Fake News @CNN & @NBC,” Trump tweeted. “What I said was to look at the possibility of giving 'concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience — only the best."
He said under his plan, about 20 percent of teachers would be able to "immediately fire back if a savage sicko came to a school with bad intentions," Trump wrote. “Highly trained teachers would also serve as a deterrent to the cowards that do this. Far more assets at much less cost than guards. A 'gun free' school is a magnet for bad people. ATTACKS WOULD END!”
At his Wednesday meeting with shooting survivors, Trump made it clear he was open to discussing the idea.
“It's certainly a point that we will discuss, concealed carry for teachers and for people of that type of talent, let's say we had 20 percent of your teaching force, because that's pretty much the number,” he said.
