WH Open To Conversation About Banning Bump Stocks

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders speaks to the media during a daily press briefing on Oct. 5 2017 White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders speaks to the media during a daily press briefing on Oct. 5 2017

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.

"It was fake news", Trump said. "A lot of times you have opinions that are being presented as news, and they're not".

Asked again what he meant, Trump replied "you'll find out", and then left for a dinner with military brass and their spouses.

"As we've said many times before, I know the president has - as I have said from this podium on quite a few occasions - never going to say in advance what the president is going to do", the press secretary noted.

During a daily press briefing Friday, Sanders pushed back against Corker's narrative that it was people like Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Chief of Staff John Kelly, and Defense Secretary James Mattis who were helping to keep order in a turbulent administration.

While partying with a friend and restaurant owner Giuseppe Cipriani, Weinstein offered the journalist a tour of the facilities. Weinstein mentioned that he was going on a foreign trip and asked if Sivan wanted to get together when he got back.

Reporters asked if the storm was related to Iran or ISIS. "The president can move markets and cause miscalculations when it comes to adversaries" like North Korea, Iran and Russian Federation. "I think we have some serious world issues here".

The White House also said it was "open" to a discussion on bump stocks, as did House Speaker Paul Ryan. "And if he feels that action is necessary, he'll take it".

For the third day in a row, media outlets are filled with stories about how Tillerson has fallen out of standing with Trump and that the White House is seeking his replacement.

At the Thursday meeting, Trump reiterated his administration's opposition to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying the USA would not "allow this dictatorship to threaten our nation or allies with unimaginable loss of life".

Trump, who earlier said Iran had "not lived up to the spirit" of the nuclear deal, was expected to "decertify" and denounce the controversial accord as not being in the US national interest, passing the issue to Congress.
