Trump's suggestion on arming educators 'simply outrageous'


MTA President Barbara Madeloni issued the following statement today concerning President Donald Trump’s suggestion that educators should be armed:

"The president's suggestion that we arm educators is simply outrageous. It reflects a bizarre commitment to violence as the answer to problems. This says something not only about the president, but also about a deeper violence in our society. The students organizing to end gun violence and the educators who are joining them have committed to a more peaceful world. That is a message and struggle we should all take up."
