Vox decided to fact-check Trump’s claim that 10-20% of America’s teachers are “very gun adept.”

I responded that he just “made it up.”

Vox did some digging and found that a program called Troops to Teachers, established by the first Bush administration in 1993 attracted 20,000 veterans into the classroom. That’s about one-half of one percent of the nation’s 3.5 Million teachers. TFA placed 320 veterans in schools. That’s not even a statistical blip.

Rachel Wolfe of VOX looked for other possible sources of teachers who are “very adept” with firearms.

As I said, Trump was just making it up.

I wonder if he has ever met an actual school teacher other than perfunctory school visits.

Where did he get that number?
