Andrew Pollack, father of 18-year-old Meadow Pollack who was brutally murdered with nine gun shots during last week’s Florida school shooting, attacked President Trump with a powerful speech during the listening session at the White House. He told Trump that “we as a country failed our children,” adding that “we cannot have our children die.”
He told Trump, “My daughter has no voice. She was murdered last week, shot nine times on the third floor. This shouldn’t happen. We go to the airport, I can’t get on the plane with a bottle of water, but we leave some animal to walk into a classroom and shoot.”
“One school shooting and we all should’ve fixed it. And I’m pissed because my daughter I’m not going to see again. She’s not here,” he continued.
He asked, “We protect airports, we protect concerts, stadiums, embassies, the Department of Education that I walked in today that has a security guard in the elevator. How do you think that makes me feel?”
The White House hosted this listening session for several of the students who survived the Florida shooting to attend with their parents, as well as parents of students who died last week, and parents of students who died in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting.
