Trump isn’t happy.

Speaking at the National Rifle Association annual meeting that followed days after 19 children and two elementary school teachers died, former President Donald Trump condemned Democrats for failing to back efforts to increase security in schools.

The former President, who is seen as the GOP’s likelihood 2024 presidential nominee, didn’t lend his support to gun restrictions, rather lambasting Democrats for dragging their feet to secure school safety.

In his remarks, Trump said, “Whatever our differences may be on other issues, what on earth is stopping Democrats from immediately passing measures to ramp up school security.”

The former President also questioned, “How many more tragedies will it take until they agree to set aside their far-left political agenda and do what is really needed and actually works?”

Since the mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, New York, Democrats are calling for gun control that would reinstate a ban on assault weapons that expired in 2004.

Trump has suggested that mass shootings like the one at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde could be avoided by introducing metal detectors, armed guards, and single-entry points for schools.
