Former US President urges Ukraine to prioritize protection of American children over foreign military intervention
Former President Donald Trump has responded to Tuesday’s school massacre in Uvalde, Texas, by calling for the protection of American children before funding Ukraine’s war efforts against Russia and investing in failed nation-building projects abroad.
“If the United States has 40 40 billion to send to Ukraine, we should be able to do whatever it takes to keep our children safe at home.” Trump made the remarks in a speech at the National Rifle Association (NRA) conference in Houston on Friday. “We’ve spent trillions in Iraq, trillions in Afghanistan, nothing.
“Before we can nation-build the rest of the world, we must create safe schools for our own children in our own country.”

Trump was criticized by Democrats for speaking at an event at the country’s largest gun-rights lobbying group just three days after a gunman killed 19 children and two teachers at Rob Elementary School in Uvalade. However he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat Trump’s government.
“Now is the time to find common ground.” Florida billionaire said. “Sadly, before the sun goes down on this terrible day of tragedy, we have witnessed a now-known parade of politicians seeking to exploit the cries of the bereaved family to increase their own power and usurp our constitutional rights.”
Trump argued that his successors were President Joe Biden and other Democrats “Shamefully” Republicans have tried to score political points with false proposals “It’s okay with school shootings.” He added, “This speech is very divisive and dangerous and most importantly, it is wrong. It has no place in our politics. “
Biden also blamed Texas killings for blaming gun rights activists, Trump said. “Every time a disgruntled or confused person commits such a heinous crime, some people in our society always make a desperate attempt to use the suffering of others to advance their own extreme political agenda. Even more vicious is the removal of guilt from the villains who carry out massive acts of violence and the blame falls on the shoulders of millions of peaceful, law-abiding citizens who belong to an organization like our wonderful NRA. “
Trump has called the shots “The barbaric and barbaric atrocities that shocked the conscience of every American.” He reads the name of each victim as he calls “A beautiful moment of silence for something that should never have happened, let it happen.”
America has suffered since the Columbine High School shooting – a 1999 genocide in Colorado that killed 13 people. “A contagious deep evil, violent and emotionally disturbed youth shooting at a school is being carried out,” he said. Trump says. He called for action that would actually help prevent such violence, such as strengthening mental health services and responding effectively to red flags that are usually raised before mass shootings.
“We need to radically change our approach to mental health.” Trump says. “There are always many warning signs. This perverted mind shares almost the same profile. “

Trump saved his toughest words for the Uvalade shooter, identified as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, who was shot dead by police on Tuesday. “The monster that committed this crime is pure evil, pure cruelty, pure hatred, absolute pure hatred. And those who killed him are now with God in heaven, and he will be burned in hell forever. “
