Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said President Trump "hasn't back away from" some of the school safety proposals he initially made, such as raising the purchase age for certain weapons, though his plan — unveiled yesterday — excludes such actions opposed by the NRA.

"Is there anything [in Trump's school safety plan] that the NRA opposes?," ABC's Jon Karl asked. Sanders said that increasing the age to purchase assault-style rifles to 21 "will be reviewed."
