If Cox's claim is true, it would represent a reversal in Trump's stance on gun control, after the president appeared to support tighter gun laws in a televised meeting with lawmakers on Wednesday.

Before Trump stunned the room, Feinstein had been talking about proposals for an assault weapons ban - a conversation-ender for most Republicans.

The tug of war over the appropriate response on the school shooting remains far from settled.

In his tweet, Chris stated he had a productive meeting with the president and vice president to which they agreed that even though they want safer schools and mental health reforms, they did not want gun control.

President Trump said Wednesday he favors taking guns away from people who might commit violence before going through legal due process in the courts, one of many startling comments he made in a rambling White House meeting created to hash out school safety legislation with a bipartisan group of lawmakers. Trump also mentioned arming teachers, and said his administration, not Congress, would ban bump-stock devices that enable guns to fire like automatic weapons with an executive order.

"While today's meeting made for great TV, the gun-control proposals discussed would make for bad policy that would not keep our children safe", NRA public affairs director Jennifer Baker said in a statement. "I like taking the guns early", Trump said Wednesday. "POTUS & VPOTUS support the Second Amendment, support strong due process and don't want gun control", Cox tweeted Thursday night. Mr Toomey said on Thursday that he didn't fear the NRA, and he called on Mr Trump to back the measure, believing it had a better chance now. Mr Trump made it clear he was looking for more and accused politicians of being "petrified" of the gun lobby. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Sen.

Trump said he "hasn't heard a lot about" the Manchin-Toomey background check legislation during the meeting, asking during the exchange whether the bill had bipartisan support.

"We stand ready and eager to work with you to find common ground and close these unsafe loopholes", said the letter also signed by Murphy and U.S. Sens. "I'm hoping there's a way forward", McConnell said. Yet lawmakers are unable to agree on what a bill should contain.

Obviously, the movie is based on a beloved childhood classic - one that some have said would be nearly impossible to film. The film flags most of all when the children travel to Camerzotz, a planet devoid of light, where the Mrs can not go.

Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Ryan Costello told NPR's Morning Edition that he worries that kind of broad directive makes it harder for Congress to focus its attention on specific legislation that could pass and eventually become law. Trump panned the bipartisan bill as little more than a building block for the "beautiful" and "comprehensive" legislation he envisioned would protect Americans from mass shootings.

During the same meeting, Trump charged Sen.

"After many years, a Bill should emerge", Trump went on. The measure, from Sens. "Because you're afraid of the NRA".

But at the meeting, the President repeatedly rejected the NRA's top legislative priority, a Bill known as concealed carry reciprocity, which would allow a person with permission to carry a concealed weapon in one state to automatically do so in every state. "He wants to be helpful", Toomey told The Associated Press.

U.S. President Donald Trump listens during a joint news conference at the White House in Washington, U.S., February 23, 2018.

Republicans have instead been leaning toward modest legislation created to improve the background system that is already in place. However, the debate rose again thanks to Trump's comments about the video game industry blaming it as a cause for Florida's recent school shooting.

"The first step is the president", he said.
