No matter what bipartisan compromises the president seems to support when they're across the table from him, he'll fall back to his most conservative positions.
White House officials said Trump's official gun plan was drafted within the confines of what Congress will allow - a notable contrast to Trump's "I alone can fix it" image as someone who could single-handedly cut through Washington gridlock.
President Trump tweeted his opposition to keeping schools gun-free Monday morning, as his administration rolled out a plan to harden schools against school shooters, including a recommendation to train teachers and staff to use firearms.
CT leaders weighed in on the proposal on Monday.
"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. The president chose not to endorse another bill introduced in the Senate that would extend background checks to gun purchases made online and at gun shows. Putting guns in the hands of educators is the wrong way to go about making our learning environments safer and healthier places for children to grow and thrive.
Shortly after Sanders left the podium, the White House released a fact sheet stating that a Commission on School Safety, set to be helmed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, will examine age restrictions.
Medicaid expansion bill clears Senate committee
Under former President Barack Obama's health law, states got the option of expanding Medicaid to cover more low-income adults. That bill would likely be very similar to the budget submitted to the current session by Gov.
The Justice Department did announce a concrete move Saturday - a plan to ban bump stocks. But the action at the White House is taking is creating a federal commission to talk about this stuff more and punting a lot of the most controversial issues including age limits to this commission, which is of course the opposite of taking action - it is in fact just engaging in more talk.

On taxes, judges, energy and environmental policy, banking regulation, and now guns, the big Republican interest groups and donor groups have had their way, and Trump has gone along with them.
"Democrats will continue to press for bipartisan progress with comprehensive background checks, gun violence restraining orders and other commonsense measures to reduce the epidemic of gun violence in our nation", the statement read. Worse still, it continues to embrace the risky notion that guns in the hands of educators will somehow protect our kids. "Thats really what we're trying to do". "This plan fails to live up to that promise". (STOP is an acronym for Students, Teachers, and Officers Preventing.) According to CNN, that bill would "provide more training for school officials and local law enforcement to respond to mental health crises, as well as money to develop anonymous reporting systems for threats and deterrent measures like metal detectors and locks".
The NRA is a generous funder of politicians, mostly Republicans, and was an enthusiastic supporter of Mr Trump's candidacy.
During one of those meetings, Mr Trump called for raising the minimum age to buy assault-style weapons from 18 to 21, a proposal strongly opposed by the National Rifle Association. One would improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check system by penalizing federal agencies that don't properly report required records and reward states that comply by providing them with federal grant preferences.
