President Trump will hold a listening session with teachers and students on Wednesday following last week's massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Florida, per the AP. He also will meet with state and local officials the next day to discuss school safety.

The backdrop: The White House didn't say who the students and teachers would be. Five students from Stoneman Douglas made the rounds on the Sunday talk shows today and were sharply critical of Trump and other Republicans. One student, addressing Trump directly over his position on gun control, said "you make me sick."
