President Donald Trump, who has a “business session” with governors from around the U.S. on his schedule this morning, said Sunday night that the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland will be “first on our list” of topics to address.
“The governors — we’re going to have a lot of meetings tomorrow. We’re going to have some very important meetings. We’ll be talking about Parkland and the horrible event that took place last week,” Trump said Sunday night in remarks to governors in the State Dining Room of the White House.
He then took time to single out one of his favorite governors.
“I want to thank Gov. Rick Scott of Florida. Rick, please stand up. You’re doing a great job. Really great job,” the president said, according to a White House transcript.
The Parkland shooting, Trump continued, “will be one of the subjects. And I think we’ll make that first on our list, because we have to end our country of what’s happening with respect to that subject. So we’ll be talking about that and many other things.”
