No Guns in School


Donald Trump may just be the master of contradiction. While politicians often make promises to appeal voters, Trump often tries to balance between two extremes. This past Friday at an NRA convention, Trump committed to eliminate gun-free zones in the country. This was a blanket statement, though gun-free zones include courthouses, prisons, and schools.


In response, Hillary Clinton took to Twitter saying “Schools should have the right to keep guns out of classrooms, just like Trump does” at his hotels.


Following criticism from Clinton, Trump replied on Twitter to say “Crooked Hillary said that I want guns brought into the school classroom. Wrong!”


Trump’s most unbelievable contradiction on this subject occurred within the span of minutes in a Fox News interview the following day.


“I don’t want to have guns in classrooms. Although, in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms. Things that are going on in our schools are unbelievable. You look at some of our schools — unbelievable what’s going on. But I’m not advocating guns in classrooms,” Trump said.


Perhaps Trump does not suffer from short-term memory loss, but rather is hoping that the American voting public does – or at least when it comes to the statements he makes that go against personal beliefs.
