Trump will attend NRA convention in school shooting's wake

Former President Donald Trump confirmed Wednesday that he will still attend the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Houston this weekend in the wake of a mass shooting at a Texas elementary school that left 19 children and two teachers dead.

“America needs real solutions and real leadership in this moment, not politicians and partisanship,” Trump wrote on Truth Social, the social media platform he helped found. “That’s why I will keep my longtime commitment to speak in Texas at the NRA Convention and deliver an important address to America. In the meantime, we all continue to pray for the victims, their families, and for our entire nation—we are all in this together!”

The NRA’s convention is scheduled just days after a shooter opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, the deadliest school shooting in the state’s history.

In addition to Trump, other Republicans set to speak at the meeting include Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.
