President Donald Trump spoke for about six minutes Thursday, Feb. 15, about the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., the previous day.
While his statement about the terrible violence against innocent schoolchildren did not mention guns, Trump did announce that he will meet with governors and attorneys general this month about making schools safe.
“It is not enough to simply take actions that make us feel like we are making a difference,” he said. “We must actually make that difference.”
Lori Alhadeff, mother of 14-year-old Jewish victim Alyssa Alhadeff, spoke a few hours later on CNN and demanded action from the president on guns as well as school security.
