Trump says arm USA teachers; they love kids as others don't


"[Democrats] will take away those massive tax cuts and they will take away your Second Amendment", President Trump said during a long, winding speech Friday morning.

"We should do what works", Trump says in the excerpts. "Second Amendment? I'm going to leave it at the Second Amendment", he said.

Trump's speech at CPAC came at the end of a week that included meetings with students and teachers and state and local officials on ways to bolster school safety and address gun violence.

Nor does the idea of arming teachers sit well with the head of the American Federation of Teachers, the parent organization of the Newark Teachers Union.

"Let's get it done right", the President said of action on a variety of fronts to deal with school shootings.

"What looked like was going to be a bad year for Republicans is now turning to be a fairly strong one".

Liverpool keen to offer Sadio Mane new contract
Jurgen Klopp says it is "not a secret" that Liverpool want to secure Sadio Mane's future. Klopp said: "I'm really proud of Roberto how he dealt with it".

Trump promised action following the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, emphasizing schools must be "hardened targets".

"We didn't have one Democratic vote", said Trump.

The President on Friday did not mention his call to raise the minimum purchase age for a gun like an AR-15 from 18 years old to 21 years old - that proposal has already drawn some concern from Republicans in the Congress, and reports of resistance inside the NRA as well.

"My administration, I think, has had the most successful first year in the history of the presidency", said Trump, explaining "the war on American energy" is over, including against "beautiful clean coal".

"We imposed today the heaviest sanctions ever imposed on a country before", Trump said. In a sprawling, campaign-style speech to activists, the President vowed to make it tougher for those with mental illness to buy guns, suggested arming teachers and vowed to defend the Second Amendment from gun foes.

His comments were almost identical to what National Rifle Association leaders proposed during the three-day annual CPAC conference on Thursday, hammering home that the fight to protect the Second Amendment could be in danger if Democrats are successful in the 2018 elections this fall.

UCD among Peace Corps' top-volunteering colleges
In 2017, the city of Madison ranked No. 8 among metropolitan areas with the highest number of Peace Corps volunteers. This is the fourth year that Wake Forest University has ranked among the top 25 small colleges and universities.

Trump accuses El Salvador of just paying lip service to combating the violent worldwide gang based there, and says Mexico "must help MORE with this problem".

"When we declare our schools to be gun-free zones it just puts our students in more danger - well-trained gun-adept teachers and coaches should be able to carry concealed firearms".

"They will take away your Second Amendment", he said of the Democrats.

The US president feigned combing his hair as the crowd, who later chanted "lock her up" in reference to Hilary Clinton and "USA" after Mr Trump discussed leaving the Paris Accord, cheered elastically. Trump reiterated his campaign pledge to build a wall along the U.S. "I don't know. I don't want to be controversial, so I won't use his name".

It's only the first year of the Trump administration and more actions from the White House - either against LGBT rights or other issues - are sure to follow. He then did a 360-turn on the stage and put his hands up to his hair - as if he were styling it.

The Economist explainsWhy the Second Amendment does not stymie gun control
The Second Amendment was adopted on December 15, 1791 as part of the first 10 amendments in the Bill of Rights. For those folks, let them keep the Second Amendment , but concur that military weapons belong in the military.
