White House insists Trump not 'chickening out' on NRA
These issues were discussed by Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the Monday press briefing, while she defended the president's talking point that their isn't enough support to push forward with raising the age to purchase a firearm.
Sanders said that under our Federalist system, some things that the White House or Congress can not get done should be left for states to decide, and that Trump will and has pressed states to enact his agenda.
Some of the players and managers said they were honored to be at the White House.
After last month's deadly shooting at a Florida high school, the president advocated for increasing the minimum age to purchase an assault weapon to 21.
Trump also went out of his way to single out several Houston players individually, including World Series MVP George Springer and American League MVP Jose Altuve. "That doesn't make sense". In a statement, he added, "When it comes to keeping our families safe, it's clear that President Trump and Congressional Republicans are all talk and no action".
"They have great power over you people", Trump said on February 28, referring to the NRA while addressing a group of lawmakers at the White House. Even though he supported it, the president described the latter measure as untenable in the current political climate.
"To all of the players and the management of the Houston Astros, I want to say thank for being true champions on and off the field", Trump said during a half-hour ceremony in the East Room.
The controversial DeVos gave an interview with 60 Minutes on Sunday night to discuss elements of Trump's plan.
"Right now the president's primary focus is on pushing through things that we know have broad bipartisan support or things that we can do from an administrative perspective, that we can do immediately", she said.
Trump also touted tenets of his policy including strengthening background checks and providing some school personnel with "rigorous" firearms training. States are making this decision. "Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly)". "He can't make them happen with a broad stroke of the pen".
Mediatereports on Shepard Smith "ripping Trump's gun control plan" on Monday afternoon's Fox News broadcast. "Americans expecting real leadership to prevent gun violence will be disappointed and troubled by President Trump's unsafe retreat from his promise", said Avery Gardiner, the group's co-president.
Still, Trump argued that this was progress.
Manager A.J. Hinch said it was a "very special" day because just one Major League Baseball team a year gets to come to the White House. He also urged states to pass laws that would allow the temporary seizure of firearms from people deemed to be risky to themselves or others. "Armed guards OK, deterrent!" We'd rather see more emphasis on reducing the number of guns than on getting more guns into schools.
Outside of support for a bill that would improve the database used to conduct background checks on gun purchases, much of the White House's policy shifts the responsibility of legislative development onto individual states, as opposed to the federal government.
Trump drew some Republican backing, with Sen. Let's not forget that the Obama administration had the White House and all of Congress for two years, and never did anything.
Instead, the issue will be one of a list of topics to be studied by the DeVos commission, which will then provide recommendations to the president.
