President Trump doesn’t mess around when it comes to keeping innocent citizens safe.
Trump’s enemies laughed when he said this week that he would have tried to confront with his bare hands the Parkland, Florida school shooter who killed 17 people.
"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 have done that, too," Trump told a group of state governors gathered at the White House.
And if you think those are just words, think again. Trump is no stranger to confronting bad guys.
Long before he was president, Trump once stopped a man armed with a baseball bat in the process of mugging an innocent victim.
As first reported by The Daily Caller, Trump was riding in his limousine on Nov. 18, 1991, with his then-wife Marla Maples (on their way to a concert), when they came upon the mugging.
Trump got out of his car and approached the man with the baseball bat. Trump said the attacker, “a big guy with a big bat,” delivered five or six “good whacks” before he arrived at the scene.
“The guy with the bat looked at me, and I said, ‘Look, you’ve gotta stop this. Put down the bat,'” Trump told The Daily News. “I guess he recognized me because he said, ‘Mr. Trump, I didn’t do anything wrong.’ I said, ‘How could you not do anything wrong when you’re whacking a guy with a bat?’ Then he ran away.”
Courageous action by President Trump!
Of course, the mainstream media is conveniently ignoring this incident from Trump’s past… because they want to portray him as “all talk,” even if they have to bend facts to do it.
However, Trump isn’t backing down.
"We have to take steps to harden our schools so that they're less vulnerable to attack," Trump said.
He also said the armed officer who didn’t stop the gunman responsible for the Valentine’s Day Florida massacre “didn’t react properly under pressure.”
Good thing President Trump does!
