You’re A coward, Trump Slams Florida School Guard

US President Donald Trump on Friday slammed the deputy sheriff who failed to confront the shooter at a Florida high school last week, saying that he was either “a coward” or froze under pressure.

Florida authorities said Thursday that school resource officer Scot Peterson, an armed officer responsible for the school’s protection, took a position outside the building for the four-minute duration of the shooting, which left 17 people dead.

Trump, who has been advocating arming teachers with concealed weapons to prevent school shootings and is pushing for several limited gun control measures, said that Peterson “didn’t act properly under pressure” or was “a coward.”

The controversial concealed-carry proposal Trump has been advocating for the past two days has long been promoted by the powerful National Rifle Association (NRA), which endorsed Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.
