President Trump said Monday that he believes he would "run in there even if I didn't have a weapon,” referencing the officer on-duty at Stoneman Douglas High School who allegedly stood outside of the school while a gunman killed 17 people earlier this month. “I really believe I would have,” he added, “you never know until you’re tested.”
