Trump spoke at the NRA convention this weekend and brought the house down.
One of his best received lines was about keeping American schools safe.
He said that if we have the money to send billions to Ukraine, we should be able to protect schools.

Donald Trump at NRA: If We Can Send $40 Billion to Ukraine, We Can Protect Our Children’s Schools
Former President Donald Trump called for more security in American schools during his speech to the National Rifle Association on Friday.
“If the United States has $40 billion to send to Ukraine, we should be able to do whatever it takes to keep our children safe at home,” Trump said, offering several security proposals for making schools safer, including armed police or security officers.
The former president directly addressed the politically charged nature of the event, after a deranged 18-year-old shot and killed 19 students and two teachers at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
“Unlike some, I did not disappoint you by not showing up,” Trump said after taking the stage at the NRA convention to a roar of approval. Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) canceled his appearance at the NRA, sending a video instead while he visited the Uvalde community.
Trump began his speech by holding a moment of silence for the shooting victims, reading their names as audio of a bell tolled in the conference room.
