Kid's School Safety Question Nearly Brings Sarah Sanders to Tears

During the White House press briefing, Sanders got emotional answering a question from 13-year-old student Benje Choucroun.

Mr Chouchron was at the White House covering its Sports and Fitness day for Time for Kids Magazine, according to Business Insider.

Sanders, a mother of three young children, didn't really give him a specific answer, but promised him the administration will do "every single thing in our power" to protect children.

He said that he and his friends are concerned the effect such drills have on their "mental health", and that they worry about getting "shot at school".

Jen Reidy, the founder of the Marin chapter of Moms Demand Action who is now a member of the Marin Chapter of the Brady Campaign, said that she is inspired by Choucroun and that it's important to call out Sanders on her response to his inquiry.

A student reporter was allowed to ask a question at the White House press briefing on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.

Venus Williams and rain are on the schedule as the year's second Grand Slam tournament is set to start at Roland Garros. The ATP Finals champion leads their head-to-head record 3-2 and would have his hands full against the Serb.

Sarah Sanders doubles down on demanding an apology for President Trump from ABC's Bob Iger for a number of things including the network hiring Keith Olbermann and Jemele Hill calling President Trump a racist.

Choucroun spoke to PEOPLE after the briefing and said he was initially "nervous" about asking the question "because I knew that these press conferences were a big deal and Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a big deal".

A woman who has a grandchild at the school says she hates the idea of these kids practicing school shooting drills.

Earlier this month, a gunman opened fire at Santa Fe High School near Houston, killing 10 people and injuring another 10.

School violence has taken center stage since the February shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school. The republican controlled Supreme Court could do something about this, but none of them are. "Therefore, I think that we can all work together to find a bipartisan solution to this problem".

"I was both nervous and really excited because I really thought that it was my chance to hopefully make a difference", Benje said.
