WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Trump will hold a listening session with high school students this week following the deadly school shooting in Florida.

A White House schedule says Trump will host students and teachers Wednesday. He also will meet with state and local officials on school safety on Thursday.

The White House did not immediately answer questions about what students would be attending the session.

Students who survived the shooting have focused their anger on the president, urging him and other elected officials to do something about gun violence.

Trump has kept largely silent about the Florida school shooting victims and the escalating gun control debate.

Instead, Trump has been raging at the FBI for what he perceives to be a fixation on the Russia investigation at the cost of failing to deter the attack.

From the privacy of his South Florida estate, Trump has vented about the investigation in a marathon series of tweets over the weekend.

Trump was last seen publicly Friday night when he visited the Florida community reeling from a school shooting that left 17 dead and gave rise to a student-led push for more gun control.
