Or will Trump keep his word on gun control measures. Trump asked whether the bill, which was focused on background checks, would have raised the age limit for buying assault weapons. McConnell had been preparing to push ahead with an incremental proposal from Sens. Chris Murphy. D-Conn., said in a tweet.

"I think this issue is being discussed in the wrong context", Leon told show hosts Brian Becker and John Kiriakou.

Congress is under pressure to act after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting last month that left 17 dead.

But after Trump's pronouncements this week, that legislation hardly mattered.

More than half of adults think his policies have worsened the lives of Muslims and Hispanics, while nearly half believe the president has worsened the lives of African Americans.

For now, many lawmakers want to pass the narrower legislation related to NICS, although that bill is tangled up by objections in the Senate. One of Trump's most loyal and longest-serving aides, his director of communications often served as human buffer between the unpredictable president and the business of government. The measure, from Sens.

In November 2017, Trump dismissed the idea that stricter regulations could reduce gun violence by saying: "You look at the city with the strongest gun laws in our nation, is Chicago, and Chicago is a disaster". "He wants to be helpful", Toomey told The Associated Press.

The White House has been rattled by two weeks of muddled messages, departures and spitting matches between the president and his own top officials.

Overall, Trump assured the lawmakers that he would lead a successful bipartisan effort, saying, "I'm not anxious about 60 votes. The U.S. Background Check Bill, or whatever", Trump said.

Trump stuns Republicans with gun control call
Instead, he suggested Republicans should focus on the background check bill, then load it up with other gun control and safety measures.

Trump is tweeting that "Background Checks a big part of conversation".

Manchin and Toomey have expressed a willingness to revisit their legislation, and a number of senators who voted no in 2013 have said since the shooting in Florida that they might reconsider their positions. "But we can't do it alone". In that meeting, Trump said he would sign whatever deal congressional negotiators brought him. And they do have great power, I agree with that. That thing that you accused Democrats of wanting to do even though there was no evidence of it, Donald Trump literally proposed doing that this week.

"There are some pretty strong views", Portman said.

And during his early congressional career took over $27,000 from the NRA directly and $883,000 in independent support. "They're very concerned on both sides".

Trump also suggested that law enforcement authorities should be able to seize guns from people with mental health issues or others who were deemed to present a danger to the public without having to go through a court process.

"Is anyone OK with this, because I'm sure as hell not", Thomas Massie, US Representative for Kentucky, tweeted on Thursday. He produced a bill to lower the handgun purchase age requirement to 18.

The White House had been expected to release a list of policy measures that Trump backs, but spokeswoman Sarah Sanders on Thursday described the process as an "ongoing discussion".

"It's going to be an ongoing process and something that we don't expect to happen overnight", she said. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) that his bipartisan background check bill didn't raise the age for weapons purchases, Trump said that was "because you're afraid of the NRA, right?"
