    This comment post will probably be deleted since this is a biased liberal media. But I’ll type it in anyway and just see. I am a black conservative and I am voting for Donald Trump. I happen to know that a whole lot of Hispanics are voting for Donald Trump also. I am in these FB groups and I see their comments how they long for America to be prosperous once again and how they came to America for the American dream of owning a nice home with a white picket fence.
    I also have these dreams.
    But lets get on to the subject at hand…
    Isn’t this the same HIllary Clinton that worked for Nixon and the very same WATERGATE old chilly Hilly was fired at. What else was she involved with Nixon that we don’t know about?
    You can also google ‘Clinton scandals and body bags’. Google Bill Clinton’s pedophile Island which Hillary also covered up. Bill Clinton used cheap woman to build a very wealthy empire. It was rumored that he bought some of these child sex slaves from the arabs also known as Islam for his pleasure and his wealthy friends to use in their private parties. And this Islamic woman Hillary is using as her sidekick must know something to have the cushy job she has. Or some of her Islamic friends are holding information ransom for her to keep this cushy job.
    I also notice a lot of commentators on some of these news comments say their words the same way with mispelling of the same words. Some libtard squats appear to have 3 to 4 ID,s on here. Replying to yourself liking your own comments in other ID form etc.
    Why do you do it? To make it look like this stupid liberal news media has more support than they have? Brainwashers are using their brainwashed dimtards to brainwash others.
    Thats about as bad as Obama paying the same actors who rioted in 2 different cities. And you can even google the Sandy Hook school shooting hoaxes where some of these actors appeared in other school shootings in other cities. Who are the fake actors who pretended to be parents? Where are the bodies buried? Why were certain honest reporters kept away from close-up photos and comments? There are Sandy Hook FB groups you can go to where a lot of questions are presented that make sense. There is no limit the libtard democrat Islamic terrorists sympathizers would not go to steal America’s guns.
    Think people think. Dont let the libtard tell you how to think. Dont be afraid of being called a conspiracy theorist or a tin foil hat wearer. You have liberal democrat voters that are getting doped up on marijuana coke and pills so that they cannot do anything but vote democrat. They are unable to search for the truth. The Liberal Democrats are a criminal organization and are striving to cheat America out of it’s freedoms to thrive and survive the way God wants them to.

US President Donald Trump met survivors and families of the victims that were killed in the Florida school shooting and suggested that teachers and staff members should be provided with arms to avert such massacres, the media reported.

Trump’s comment came during a White House “listening session” on Wednesday which was attended by families and students including six survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where a 19-year-old man Nikolas Cruz armed with an assault rifle killed 17 people on February 14, reports CNN.

The event brought Trump face-to-face with students and parents who have demanded action on gun violence.

“If you had a teacher who was adept with the firearm, they could end the attack very quickly,” he said, stating that schools could arm up to 20 per cent of their teachers to stop “maniacs” who may try and attack them.

“This would be obviously only for people who were very adept at handling a gun, and it would be, it’s called concealed carry, where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them. They’d go for special training and they would be there and you would no longer have a gun-free zone,” Trump said. “Gun-free zone to a maniac — because they’re all cowards — a gun-free zone is ‘let’s go in and let’s attack because bullets aren’t coming back at us’.”

Acknowledging that the idea was controversial, Trump said that his administration would give it serious study.

The President also called for more mental institutions and hospitals in addition to the idea of arming teachers.

Trump’s idea of arming teachers and school staff was met with support from many of the attendees, CNN reported.

Fred Abt, the father of Parkland shooting survivor Carson Abt, said he had discussed with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos that rather than waiting for first responders to arrive, it would be more efficient to have firearms locked on school campuses.

“One possible solution, which may not be very popular, would be to have people in the school, teachers, administrators who have volunteered to have a firearm safely locked in the classroom who are given training throughout the year,” he said.

“There are plenty of teachers who are already licensed to carry firearms, have them raise their hands to volunteer for the training, and when something like this starts, the first responders are already on campus.

Andrew Pollack, a father of one of the 17 victims who died in the Florida shooting, said he was speaking because his daughter couldn’t.

“We as a country failed our children…

This shouldn’t happen.”

The President, flanked by the students, went around the room and shook hands before commencing the session.

Trump also later tweeted he would “always remember” the event, adding “we must keep our children safe”.

“I will always remember the time I spent today with courageous students, teachers and families,” he tweeted, along with a link to the full event.

“So much love in the midst of so much pain. We must not let them down. We must keep our children safe!!” (IANS)
