Justin Verlander And The Houston Astros Go To The White House

Houston Astros Visit President Donald Trump at White House

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Trump still backs some of those changes, including new age limits, but is focusing on measures that can get through the US Congress.

Shortly after Sanders left the podium, the White House released a fact sheet stating that a Commission on School Safety, set to be helmed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, will examine age restrictions. His defenders on Capitol Hill said much the same Monday, arguing that Trump's plan was crafted in political reality, considering the composition of Congress. Overtime, the commission will assess whether Congress should pass a law to raise the age of purchase for a semi-automatic rifle to 21, repealing President Obama's anti-discipline education policies and increasing funding as necessary for additional state based training, safety or mental health programs.

Sanders separately complained that members of the media "continue to misunderstand and misrepresent the comments that I'm making", but acknowledged that DeVos' commission wasn't focused on immediate legislative priorities. But that doesn't mean that he has wiped away some of those other things.

Democrats, once given hope by Trump's instinctual response, have accused the president of buckling under NRA pressure and reverting to type.

"To no one's surprise, the president's words of support for stronger gun safety laws proved to be hollow".

Jared Kushner to meet with Mexican president
Despite this, however, the president still sent Kushner to meet with Mexican officials as a diplomatic envoy on Wednesday. It is not a solicitation to make any exchange in commodities, securities or other financial instruments.

To be sure, the Florida bill stopped well short of restoring the Clinton Administration's ban on assault weapons, which is what the students have demanded. "Responding to the murders of 17 students and educators by endorsing the gun lobby's platform is abdication of the president's responsibility to lead".

The plan he unveiled Sunday makes no mention of such confiscation. And the Justice Department saying it's going to use money already budgeted within the DOJ. During his Pennsylvania rally on Saturday night, the President talked North Korea, swiped at the media and Oprah Winfrey, and called Chuck Todd a "sleepy-eyed son of a bitch". But you can buy the kind of weapon used in the school shooting at 18. Because for example with the age limit question as you've reported the president, he's not taking on that issue head on anymore but instead assigning that to a new federal commission on school safety chaired by Secretary DeVos. The bureau has been criticized for not following up on warnings about the suspect in the Parkland school shooting.

Upon further review, it turns out he was looking past them, straight into a mirror. Probably the most significant part of the plan from that perspective is that the president endorsed the creation of extreme risk protection orders. "I think, you know, if they do that, they ought to be able to buy a hunting rifle", said Sen. "And that end seems rarely to be dictated by firm principles or even a consistent policy agenda".

The team was invited to the White House to celebrate their World Series victory and took a day off from spring training to fly from Florida to Washington. He expressed his opposition to the deal when they arrived, they said. Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, dismissed the measures as "baby steps designed not to upset NRA". The Golden State Warriors did not make the trip after being disinvited by President Trump. -European military is "no longer obsolete".

"Americans expecting real leadership to prevent gun violence will be disappointed and troubled by President Trump's unsafe retreat from his promise", said Avery Gardiner, the group's co-president.
