“Active shooter drills is a very negative thing,” Mr. Trump said after Pam Stewart, the Florida Department of Education commissioner, mentioned such preparations. “I don’t like it. I’d much rather have a hardened school.”
Mr. Trump added that active shooter drills were “crazy,” and “very hard on children.”
The president’s comments came after he spent the morning trying to clarify his view on arming teachers, a proposal he floated at Wednesday’s session with survivors, and which has met with stiff opposition. In a series of Twitter messages, he said he would arm teachers who have “military or special training experience.”
“A ‘gun free’ school is a magnet for bad people. ATTACKS WOULD END,”

It seems a high percentage of schools that have active shooting drills are actual targets of school shootings.
Does Trump think something else is going on with these "drills"?
