White House Backs Away From Redlines In Gun Control Debate

Sens. Toomey, Manchin Discuss Gun Control With President Trump

When asked why Trump made the decision, Roberts responded: "Good question".

Other corporate leaders reached that same conclusion earlier in the week.

The NRA not happy with what the president said at the white house said this week, citing Democrats on their ideas on sdo schools and gun violence. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., and others have offered the president their own private counsel. "Anybody who wants to take an AR-15 into a school is not a rational actor; in fact, what you're probably doing is creating the scenario where the individual feels like they have to meet a greater force with an even more greater force". One of the bill's co-author's Sen. You know, you rate movies for different things.

Listening to various viewpoints, though, has never been the gripe against Trump.

Trump held a freewheeling, televised meeting with lawmakers at the White House that stretched for an hour Wednesday, and he rejected both his party's incremental approach and its strategy that has stalled action on gun legislation.

Rob Porter, a staff secretary in the White House, resigned after domestic abuse allegations surfaced, as did another White House staffer, David Sorensen.

The dynamic played out repeatedly during last year's health care debate over replacing the Affordable Care Act. "If he continues to bow to his right-wing ringmasters, we will get nothing done on guns and his presidency will continue to fail".

"We all want safe schools, mental health reform and to keep guns away from unsafe people", said Mr. Cox, adding that Messrs. John Kennedy, R-La. In the wake of the shooting, a national debate over gun control has re-emerged.

Trump later tweeted a confirmation of an Oval Office meeting with the NRA, saying it was "Good (Great)", but not elaborating on whether he had changed position. Cox added that Trump and Pence "support the Second Amendment, support strong due process and don't want gun control".

Trump had also on Wednesday appeared to endorse aggressive measures to confiscate guns from risky people.

The poll was conducted before news broke that White House staffers operating without permanent security clearances - including the President's son-in-law, who serves in a senior role at the White House - would have their access to top secret information limited. Thom Tillis, a Republican, told Business Insider.

Russia has successfully developed a new range of nuclear weapons that are unparalleled in the West and are effectively impossible for America to intercept, Russian President Vladimir Putin boasted Thursday, as reported by The Associated Press.

Trump tweeted Thursday evening about the meeting, which was not listed on his public schedule. "Tuesday we had a president that I was proud to golf with, call my friend".

"I'm going to write that out. I want him back", Graham said. Reporter: Tonight, president trump appears to be bowing to the demands of the NRA.

Not wise, said Sen.

"There is some value in the chaos that Trump does bring", Koehler said.

Ironically, President Trump may not be introducing volatility back into the gun market. That quickly sparked global warnings of retaliation and left the financial markets reeling.
