Following the Parkland School Shooting, Trump came up with the most idiotic idea yet: arm around 20% of teachers who “love their students,” so that they can shoot those students if they have to. It’s the kind of unwise declaration that most likely been dictated by the NRA, because no one could come up with such a dumb idea.
Or perhaps Trump really is that dumb. When is about schools, Trump is undoubtedly the last person who should state on how they’re run. He was hardly a student to begin with. Actually, late professor William T. Kelley of the Wharton School of Business has once said that “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddamn student I ever had.” And that was long before Trump was ever a Presidental candidate.
And professors and classmates at the University of Pennsylvania agreed:
Another biographer, Gwenda Blair, wrote in 2001 that Trump was admitted to Wharton on a special favor from a “friendly” admissions officer. The officer had known Trump’s older brother, Freddy.
Trump’s classmates distrust that the real estate mogul was an academic powerhouse.
“He was not in any kind of leadership. I certainly doubt he was the smartest guy in the class,” said Steve Perelman, a 1968 Wharton classmate and a former Daily Pennsylvanian news editor.
Some classmates speculated that Trump skipped class, others that he commuted to New York on weekends. . . .

1968 Wharton graduate Louis Calomaris recalled that “Don … was loath to really study much.”
Calomaris said Trump would come to study groups unprepared and did not “seem to care about being prepared.”
Trump barely showed any particular interest about school when he was attending, and that was before AR-15s were readily available to potential murderers. Do you think Trump is able to make wise decision on how to protect schools now?
