Donald Trump: America’s Mass Shooters Are ‘Geniuses in a Certain Way’
Donald Trump offered a new opinion about school shootings on a Sunday segment of NBC’s Meet the Press. He suggested that school shooters were geniuses.
“I have to say, no matter what you do, you’re gonna have problems,” said Trump.
“Because you have sick people. They happen to be intelligent. And, you know, they can be sick as hell and they’re ‘. They are going to be able to break the system.”
Trump made it clear he supports the Second Amendment all the way and wouldn’t advocate for gun control laws.
“I’m a very, very big second amendment person,” Trump said in Tennessee. “This is about self-defense, plain and simple.”

Trump also defended his newly introduced tax plan , which independent economists estimate will cost $12tn over 10 years, by noting his ability to cut costs. He pointed to transportation as one place where he could save money.
“I look at the cost of a road where they’re gonna spend $600m building a simple road,” said Trump. “And I don’t mean I’m gonna save you a little bit. We’re gonna bring in … you’re gonna build a better road. You’re gonna have a better road for a fraction of the cost.”
The Republican frontrunner also hit back when Todd pointed to polls which have him losing by a landslide to both Vice-President Joe Biden and Vermont senator Bernie Sanders in any such general election matchup.
Trump, who has long touted his poll numbers in the Republican primary, said: “I haven’t focused on Bernie Sanders.”
He added: “I’ve been a guy that wins most of the time. And if I don’t win, I make it into a win.”
