Trump expresses support for arming teachers in ‘listening session’

President Trump expressed support for arming teachers Wednesday during an emotional meeting at the White House with teenagers who survived last week’s massacre at a Florida high school, while thousands of students walked out of schools nationwide and marched on capitols from Washington to Tallahassee to demand more gun control laws.

At the White House, Mr. Trump held a “listening session” with students, parents and teachers who were affected by last week’s shooting, as well as the massacre in 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and in 1999 at Columbine High School in Colorado.

Their voices trembling at times, students who survived the Florida shooting told the president that no other students should have to suffer the horrors that they witnessed.

“As a kid, nothing that horrible should ever have to happen to you. It’s just so tragic,” said student Jonathan Blank.

Student Samuel Zeif, who said he texted his brothers during the shooting that he probably would never see them again, urged the audience, “Let’s never let this happen again — please, please.”
