President Trump Addresses Governors On School Security
‘Turn our grief into action’
President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence addressed nearly 80 percent of the Nation’s governors yesterday at a bipartisan business session at the White House. Although the President highlighted many successes from the past year—including tax reform and early signs that tough sanctions against North Korea are working—he told attendees that one issue should be at the top of everyone’s mind.
“Most importantly, we want to discuss the public safety in schools and public safety, generally. But school safety. We can’t have this go on,” the President said.
“But we will turn our grief into action,” President Trump continued. “We have to take steps to harden our schools so that they are less vulnerable to attack.” The President specifically mentioned better regulating of bump stocks, addressing mental health concerns, and improving early warning response systems to help diminish the risk of violence.
