SOT, Journalist: «Oh, thanks for the compliment.» SOT, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary: «Hopefully these aren’t as tough as Bring Your Kids to Work Day questions.» SOT, Benje Choucroun, reporter from TIME for Kids: «At my school, we recently had a lockdown drill. One thing that affects mine and other students’ mental health is the worry about the fact that we or our friends... Еще could get shot at school. Specifically, can you tell me what the administration has done and will do to prevent these senseless tragedies?» SOT, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary: «I think that as a kid, and certainly as a parent, there is nothing that could be more terrifying for a kid to go to school and not feel safe. So I’m sorry that you feel that way. This administration takes it seriously. And the School Safety Commission that the President convened is meeting this week, again, an official meeting to discuss the best ways forward and how we can do every single thing within our power to protect kids in our schools and to make them feel safe and make their parents feel good about dropping them off.” *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* A 13-year-old 'reporter' from TIME for kids magazine Benje Choucroun moved White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to tears after expressing his fears of being shot at school, in the wake of recent deadly school shootings in the US, during a press briefing in Washington DC on Wednesday. «Specifically, can you tell me what the administration has done and will do to prevent these senseless tragedies?» asked Choucroun.
