Following the recent school shooting in Florida, President Trump said everything a president needed to say. He expressed the need for compassion, prayers, and sympathy for all the victims of the tragedy. In this all Americans agree. His and Mrs. Trump's visit to Florida will be followed by action. In calling for a conference of mayors and governors, he is again doing what a president should do, to seek a plan or plans for effective actions to prevent future tragedies. Spoken in six minutes and 23 seconds, his speech is well worth hearing in full.
