Trump administration 'open' to debate on banning bump stocks

Sarah Sanders Sanders split 10-5

"I would certainly trust the president and my comments far above those of other reporters", Sanders said.

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.

"I think Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis and chief of staff Kelly are those people that help separate our country from chaos", Corker said, referring to Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House chief of staff John Kelly.

While posing with military leaders and their wives at a White House photo op Thursday evening, Trump's remarks were cryptic and, perhaps by design, a little ominous.

Sanders talked right over Reid and said that the San Juan mayor made "zero comments" when President Trump opened the table for discussion during his visit to PR.




Asked if the comment was in reference to any specific country, Sanders added: "I believe it was just a general comment". It was triggered by the previous day's reports of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's frustrations and the Senate Intelligence Committee's continuing search for evidence of collusion with Russian election meddling. "But I do think that we should call on all media to a higher standard".

"It could be, The calm, the calm before the storm", Trump said. He winked when a reporter asked him to clarify, saying "You'll find out".

"We're going to continue doing that. He's been very clear that that's his number one priority, and if he feels action is necessary, he will take it".

The press secretary was asked during the White House briefing about the reported rift between the president and his secretary of state.

Asked about the off chance that Trump was merely being "mischievous" or even "messing with the press a little bit", Sanders replied that she hadn't said that was the case and that North Korea and Iran continued to be "bad actors" that merit USA vigilance.
