The White House says US President Donald Trump supports improved background checks on gun purchases, in the wake of last Wednesday’s school shooting in Florida.
Trump is set to speak to survivors on Wednesday, in what is being called a “listening session”.
It comes as activists staged a mass “die-in” protest outside the White House.
