President Donald Trump claims that he would have run into the Parkland, Fla. high school, where 17 people were killed earlier this month, and prevented the mass shooting.
The president was speaking to governors at the White House on Monday when he made the statement.
“You don’t know until you test it, but I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon,” said Trump. “And I think most of the people in this room would have done that, too.”

Trump was speaking about the armed sheriff deputy who did not confront the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter.
“The way they performed was really a disgrace,” Trump continued.
