Trump got more serious when he pivoted to discuss the Florida school shooting. He detailed his plans to not only improve the accuracy of the background check system, but also talked about his plan to allow trained teachers to use concealed guns in schools in order to be more offensive, rather than defensive. The President said, “A teacher would’ve shot the hell out of him before he knew what happened,” in reference to the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Breitbart News reported that Trump’s CPAC speech comes just days after his push to arm “20 percent” of trained public school teachers as a way to make schools safer. He introduced the plan on Wednesday and has stressed it’s importance, citing that authorities are “5 to 8 minutes away,” but teachers can shoot the sickos, as he called them, “immediately.”
President Trump spoke for over an hour, and urged American’s and grassroots conservatives to re-energize for the midterms, and warned that Republicans are going to face tough elections, especially with the historic nature of the political party in power, loses the majority in Congress during the midterm election. He said American’s MUST HAVE DRIVE for the midterms and avoid complacency, and then cited how CRAZED the Progressive-left has become to eliminate the second amendment. President Trump warned CPAC attendees on Friday that Democrats WILL AlSO TAKE AWAY the tax cuts and if given control of Congress. He then further emphasized the importance of preserving our second amendment to the Constitution.
The President delivered an incredible 80 minute non-scripted speech citing illegal immigration, the 2018 midterms, America’s booming economy, Obamacare’s timely death, the Democrats goal of gun confiscation, and so much more. He did not talk about raising the minimum age for gun ownership, but he did talk about how John McCain voted for Obamacare, and even pulled out a copy of the poem ‘The Snake,’ in reference to McCain. A move that brought the attendees to their feet, cheering.
President Trump concluded by stating, “We’re going to Make America Great Again and I will never ever, ever, let you down,” and to that, the President has certainly been a man of his word.
