President Donald Trump: I Would Have Confronted Shooter (Video)

President Trump met with US governors on Monday in the White House.

During the question and answer session Trump told the governors he would have confronted the shooter if he would have been at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas School on February 14th.

President Trump: “I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon.”


President Donald Trump said that he would have confronted the high school shooter in Florida if he was outside the building at the time of the attack.
The president met with United States Governors on Monday, to discuss political issues — including how to stop school shootings from happening.

“You don’t know until you test it but, I really believe I’d run in there, even if I didn’t have a weapon, and I think most of the people in this room would have done that too,” Trump said.

Trump again criticized the Broward County deputies who remained outside the school as the shooter attacked.


“They weren’t exactly Medal of Honor winners all right?” he said. “The way they performed was frankly disgusting.”

Trump specifically mentioned Broward Country Sheriff Deputy Scot Peterson for not entering the school.
