    Texas Shooting Victim’s Mom: Talking to Trump ‘Was Like Talking to a Toddler’

    Joshua Roberts/Reuters

    President Trump on Thursday privately met with families affected by the Texas mass shooting that killed 10 and wounded a dozen others at Santa Fe High School. One mother of a student killed in the massacre had a particularly stunning story about her exchange with the president. Per the Associated Press: “Rhonda Hart, [an Army vet] whose 14-year-old daughter, Kimberly Vaughan, was killed at the school... suggested employing veterans as sentinels in schools. She said Trump responded, ‘And arm them?’ She replied, ‘No,’ but said Trump ‘kept mentioning’ arming classroom teachers. ‘It was like talking to a toddler,’ Hart said.” Another parent of a victim, however, described her exchange in glowing terms. Trump “met with us privately and showed sincerity, compassion, and concern on making our schools safer across the nation,” wrote Pamela Stanich, whose son Jared Black, 17, was killed in the attack. “Changes are coming for the good. Thank you Mr. Trump.”
