Democrat presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg claims “21 students are shot every day” under President Trump.
In other words, Bloomberg is claiming that the 14 students killed in Parkland, Florida, on February 14, 2018, were only part of the picture that day.
Seven others were allegedly shot somewhere else, if Bloomberg’s claim is to be believed. And the next day, 21 more were shot, and then 21 were shot again the day after that, and so on.
Bloomberg offers no substantiation for his claim. Instead, he released a video this week claiming there have been 263 school shootings since President Trump took office.
Two things need to be noted. First, Bloomberg’s video provides zero substantiation for the claim of 263 school shootings.
Secondly, the phrase “school shootings” is very subjective and, as Bloomberg’s gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety has shown, it can lead to massive amounts of exaggeration.
