Trump Won't Support Raising Minimum Gun Age To 21

Trump Won't Support Raising Minimum Gun Age To 21

Marco Rubio and Rep. Ted Deutch listen during a meeting discuss school and community safety on February 28 at the White House.

However, the measures proposed by the White House on Sunday night were weaker than some of the more sweeping changes Trump had embraced during his televised meetings on the issue.

Basically what the White House has said is that there are existing state and local programs to allow some school personnel to carry guns within the schools, to carve out exceptions under federal law to allow them to do that. and that they want to sort of build on what some states are already doing.

Mr Trump tweeted on Monday: "On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting".

Gun control advocates said the reason for Trump's retreat is obvious: He caved to the National Rifle Association.

The White House ended up far to the right of most of these proposals.

The White House releases a school safety plan that backs off President Trump's comments about raising the age limits for purchasing certain weapons, but sticks to a plan to arm teachers.

We saw a similar unraveling of compromise play out in a January immigration debate. On Twitter, Trump indicated it was a matter for the states to consider.

Actually, nearly all Senate Democrats were thrilled after that meeting.

After all, Trump signaled support to senators last fall for a bill to prop up the Affordable Care Act until he backtracked the next day. "Many of us pleasantly".

The NRA supports the idea of allowing armed teachers in schools.

Observing that Trump has made "strong and necessary" moves to deter threats to the USA, the White House said he has led and executed an worldwide maximum pressure campaign against North Korea to compel it to denuclearise and cease its risky provocations.

Crying? A Glum Justin Bieber Leads Today's Star Sightings
Selena Gomez has reportedly packed off back to Texas for some head space amid rumours of a split from boyfriend Justin Bieber . Her mom was her rock when she was having her health complications. "They didn't talk for a while".

But she also implicitly offered the answer to the question that has hung in the air ever since the extraordinary outpouring of emotion and activism by surviving students of the massacre: Would the President wager a little of the political capital he enjoys with his political base to give cover to Republican lawmakers who worry about tough votes on gun control?

Pretty much the same pattern played out a few months ago when Congress was trying to come up with an immigration deal to protect "dreamers" from deportation.

Trump shifted his position on age limits because they don't have "much political support (to put it mildly)", he tweeted Monday.

The findings also hint at a stark difference between gun polling today and polling during the Obama administration: Republicans are no longer especially afraid that the president will take their guns. In an open-camera meeting with lawmakers on immigration in January, Trump appeared to agree with Democrats on a bill just to legalize dreamers without anything in exchange.

Bremberg said the administration is backing two pieces of legislation: A bipartisan bill by Sens.

Michael A. Cohen, a Trump critic who accused the president of having "no core principles", said he's not surprised by the constant shifts.

"We can't just keep setting up blue-ribbon committees with your wife and your wife and your husband, and they meet and they have a meal and they talk talk talk talk".

"Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it", Trump famously said in accepting the GOP nomination in 2016.

"He's talking about Congress, who actually has the ability to make law, not online polls", she said.

"In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, President Trump called on representatives of over 50 Muslim-majority nations to do more to combat terror and extremist ideology", it said.

Some of the more controversial proposals, including raising the minimum purchase age or requiring background checks for guns bought at gun shows or on the internet, will be studied by a commission headed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, administration officials said.
