Donald Trump was asked on Friday if children should be afraid to go back to school in the wake of two mass shootings that ended in the death of 31 people.
Trump said that the kids “have nothing to fear, nothing to worry about.”
Trump went on to say that children who are afraid of going back to school should “really study hard” and “someday you’ll grow up and maybe be president of the United States, or do something else that’s fantastic.”
He also took a jab at former President Barack Obama, saying the current situation is “so much better than it was 2 1/2 years ago.”
“I think we have a very good system right now,” Trump said, “but that doesn’t mean that there’s not going to be some crazy person. But that’s what we want to do — we want to take the guns out of the hands of crazy, demented, sick people.”
