Correa skips Astros' visit to White House

The Latest: Trump's school plan envisions arming teachers

He told The Wall Street Journal that the bank "actually makes money" and endorsed the idea it helps USA companies that have to compete with foreign rivals that receive subsidies from their governments - arguments that supporters of the Export-Import Bank of the United States have made for years. Trump ultimately put forward an immigration proposal to drastically change the legal immigration system that is so conservative most Republicans in Congress won't support it.

The Trump administration wants to help states provide teachers with "rigorous" firearms training, a White House official said Sunday night during a call with reporters describing the administration's efforts to prevent school shootings.

Trump said on Sunday that he would work to raise the age limit and will establish a Federal Commission on School Safety, to be chaired by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, that will explore possible solutions regarding the age requirement for gun purchases. He's also met and spoken with the heads of the powerful National Rifle Association.

President Trump has previously indicated his support for arming teachers. In another tweet, he said, "On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting". The measure is created to provide grants so state governments could improve school security, active shooter training, and implement related technology.

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.

During a meeting with lawmakers, Trump advocated the bipartisan FixNICS measure, introduced by Sens. It's also noteworthy that the president tweeted this morning that there just wasn't a lot of political support for this policy.

Trump drew some Republican backing, with Sen.

Where Trump's White House ended up on how to respond to school shootings is a world away from where he started.

Richard Sherman meeting with 49ers
Although the 49ers are in desperate need of a strong cornerback, there are some concerns about Sherman's health and age. And Schefter says it's possible that Sherman, who grew up in California, will stay in the area after his visit.

"These proposals could be done right now".

The administration's proposal would implement or call for the implementation of a number of immediate reforms meant to address school safety and reduce gun violence.

She added: "He is making sure that the things that we can do right now, we're actually doing".

The National Education Association, the largest representative of USA educators in the country, "overwhelmingly rejected" Trump's idea to arm school staff. "Educators need to be focused on teaching our students".

The massacre spurred officials in Washington to re-evaluate gun laws.

"Americans expecting real leadership to prevent gun violence will be disappointed and troubled by President Trump's risky retreat from his promise", said Avery Gardiner, the group's co-president. "Our students need more books, art and music programs, nurses and school counselors; they do not need more guns in their classrooms".

"The notion that my kids are going to school with teachers that are armed with a weapon is not something that, quite frankly, I'm comfortable with", the Republican said. So that of course is probably the most controversial part of the plan.

Upon further review, it turns out he was looking past them, straight into a mirror. DeVos has been a source of contention because of her stance on privatizing schools over of supporting public education. The press secretary tried to dodge it with a bit of trickery, claiming that while Trump may not be endorsing an AR-15 minimum purchase age increase, he could still end up doing so it a new federal commission determines it's a good idea.
