Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was speaking about this very point today.

At his Feb. 28 meeting with lawmakers, Trump sounded open to new restrictions on gun purchase. While the constitutional change means the 64-year-old leader could become president for life, Trump quipped at a luncheon this month for Republican donors: "I think it's great". On this issue, a commission's okay?

"His initiative basically amounts to a big nothing", he said of Trump. "What he is pushing forward are things that can immediately be accomplished, either through the administration or that have broad-based bipartisan support in Congress. But that doesn't mean that he has wiped away some of those other things that we're still looking at how best we can move forward on". He is far too weak and ignorant to follow through.

Nunberg later told ABC News that the Russia investigation is "not a witch hunt". The White House has not proposed offering states new funding for this training. "You can buy a handgun - you can't buy one; you have to wait until you're 21". The other no-show, Beltran, admitted his discomfort with the federal government over its handling to date of Puerto Ricos recovery after the devastating passage of Hurricane Maria last September.

One court case Trump is referring to is ostensibly the NRA's lawsuit filed against the state of Florida over legislation Governor Rick Scott signed that raised the minimum age to purchase a firearm to 21 from 18.

DeVos declined to say on NBC how many teachers should be armed. With a break in their Spring Training schedule, players from last year's World Series championship team traveled to Washington at the invitation of President Donald Trump.

"You guys continue to misunderstand and misrepresent the comments that I'm making", Sanders complained to reporters, before offering a remarkably orthodox Washington explanation of the actions of a president who is usually prides himself on rejecting the tropes of establishment politics.
