To that point, this press-briefing episode of Donald Trump White House had a blockbuster finish when NBC News's Peter Alexander noted there have been 11 school shootings in the first 23 days of 2018, and asked how Trump meant to use his bully pulpit to do something about the country's gun violence. "This will greatly help the Senate efforts to craft a proposal which President Trump can sign into law", said Senator Lindsay Graham. Republicans want funding for a border wall and an end to the visa lottery program as well as familial preferences in immigration.
