WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said a deadly shooting at a U.S. high school in Texas was heartbreaking and that federal and local authorities were coordinating in the wake of the gun attack.

“My administration is determined to do everything in our power to protect our students, secure our schools and to keep weapons out of the hands of those who pose a threat to themselves and to others,” Trump said at the White House.
