Trump Floats Gun Bonus For Teachers [VIDEO]

CNN reports:

“These people are cowards. They’re not going to walk into a school if 20% of the teachers have guns — it may be 10% or may be 40%. And what I’d recommend doing is the people that do carry, we give them a bonus. We give them a little bit of a bonus,” Trump said. “They’ll frankly feel more comfortable having the gun anyway. But you give them a little bit of a bonus.”

White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah told reporters after Trump’s comments that the proposal hasn’t reached the policy or legislative point yet, but downplayed questions about how the plan would be funded. Asked about the cost of a plan — which could be well into the hundreds of millions of dollars — Shah again repeated that the policy “hasn’t been fleshed out” but added, “Do we really think that that’s too much to pay for school safety?”
