Trump Repeats Call For Armed Teachers, Stronger Background Checks

A Christian conservative, Pence spoke at the annual gathering of the Conservative Political Action Conference, a traditional venue where the grassroots of the Republican Party makes itself felt.

In a rare bout of self-awareness, President Donald Trump opened up about a topic close to his, uh, scalp: his bald spot.

"Remember when I first started running - I started running and people said are you sure he's a conservative".

Trump estimated that 10%-20% of teachers or other school staff - such as coaches or the principal - are military, law-enforcement trained, or "gun-adept people" and should carry concealed weapons to stop school massacres.

On Friday, however, Trump declared himself firm in his support for gun ownership rights, despite his pledges this week to take some action on guns. "They love their pupils".

Trump's remarks on gun control didn't draw a particularly passionate response from the crowd, though he was on more solid ground criticizing "fake news" CNN and making a pitch for merit-based immigration. And they are saying we just had that great big it - let's not vote. "You're getting the wall, don't worry - I heard you", Trump promised of his vaunted Southern border wall, as chants of "Build the wall!" rang out. And these teachers are talented with weaponry and with guns.

While a moment of silence was held to honour the 17 people killed at a Florida high school, CPAC's attendees or speakers did not shy away from the issue.

The White House has said Trump will soon lay out a package of school and gun safety proposals for Congress to consider.

Numerous supporters wearing red Trump campaign hats roared with delight when the president pulled out a copy of The Snake and read the poem.

"We will see, but hopefully something positive can happen", Trump said. After gun rights received far more applause, Trump said, "I'm gonna leave it at the Second Amendment". The president wondered why the US protects airports, banks and government buildings "but not our schools". The school had one armed guard who the Broward County Sheriff said did not go into the school to engage the shooter and has since resigned. "So if their promises were to hurt workers, bully students, discriminate against courageous transgender service members, make America less safe and inflame hate, then, yes, promises kept". He urged activists to help Republicans in the fall midterm elections.

Turning to this year's elections, Trump told conservative activists at CPAC that Republicans must not be complacent in the fall midterms, warning of awful consequences if Democrats take control of Congress.

Trump told the crowd that Democrats will remove recent tax cuts on business and the Second Amendment - although no Democratic presidential nominee has called for revoking the Second Amendment.
