The president also condemned officers who did not enter the school as the tragedy played out.
President Donald Trump said today he would have stopped the Florida high school shooter even without a form of self-defense.
“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon,” he told a panel of governors at the White House on Monday.
“You never know until you’re tested,” added Trump. “But I think, 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’ve done that too because I know most of you.”
In that same discussion, the president pointed the fingers at more than one sheriff’s deputy he feels, “weren't exactly Medal of Honor winners" and said, "the way they performed was frankly disgusting."
He drove home his point saying, "The way they performed was really a disgrace."
Three sheriff's deputies were taken to task by the president, especially Deputy Scot Peterson who he said was, "not a credit to law enforcement" adding he didn't "love the children."
Seventeen people were killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14 at the hands of 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz.
It should be noted that when faced with a terrorist situation one should not confront the assailant without protection for obvious safety reasons.
