Raj Shah will cover for Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders today, and will hold a briefing to discuss the White House’s latest plans and administrative agenda. The briefing is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. ET.
The deputy press secretary will undoubtedly face more questions pertaining to gun control and the Administration’s plan of action following last week’s school shooting in Parkland, FL. This will be a follow up from yesterday’s listening session where Trump heard testimony from those who have been affected by the Parkland massacre and other mass casualty events over the last several years.
Earlier today, Trump went on another tweetstorm to bash the media against while defending his view that teachers who are “adept at firearms” should be allowed to have guns in school. This contradicts a previous statement during the 2016 election, in which, Trump said it was a lie that he wants guns in the classroom.
The president also tweeted support for the National Rifle Associate just before NRA chief Wayne LaPierre spoke at CPAC and blasted the media, the FBI, “socialist” Democrats and everyone in between for how they’ve handled the aftermath of the Parkland shooting.
