It was later revealed the deputy at the school did not enter the school to confront the shooter. Additionally, three more officers arrived and did not go after the killer. These men could have stopped at least some of the carnage. Clearly, the officers felt outgunned.
However, today, tough guy Donald Trump said he would have entered the school even without a gun to confront the shooter. No one truly believes this to be the case though.
Trump slammed officers who refused to entered the school, which was caught on camera.
