WH Open To Conversation About Banning Bump Stocks

WH Open To Conversation About Banning Bump Stocks

When she asked about the significance of the word "nasty" on the shirt, the mayor simply replied that it was a reference to the President Trump referring to her as a "nasty mayor".

Throughout Friday's briefing, Sanders continually reiterated the White House's message that the administration does not share its actions ahead of time. "And that's all that today was about".

Trump's "apology" was similar in character, minimizing what he had done, while turning the entire exercise into an excuse to attack Hillary Clinton, and not apologizing for the million other things he'd said and done.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Trump welcomed a conversation on banning bump stocks, devices used in the mass shooting in Las Vegas and elsewhere to make semi-automatic weapons operate more like machine guns.

Huckabee Sanders responded to the Ryan's question by saying that the visit was not at all "controversial" and was in fact "widely praised, even by a Democrat Governor".

Sanders' comments came hours after Trump urged the Senate Intelligence Committee - which is now focused on an ongoing investigation into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian operatives - to instead investigate "the Fake News Networks in OUR country to see why so much of our news is just made up-FAKE!"

When asked again what he meant, Trump said only: "You'll find out".

Asked if the comment was in reference to any specific country, Sanders added: "I believe it was just a general comment".

When pressed about Trump's tweets-which appear to be in response to an NBC News article that stated Secretary of State Rex Tillerson considered resigning (something he later refuted) and called him a "moron" (which he didn't deny)-Sanders first tried to explain why Trump tweeted what he did.

Trump will decertify the Iran nuclear pact next week, declaring it is not in the national interest, but let Congress decide whether to actually walk away from it.
