Feb. 22 (UPI) -- White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah is scheduled to give an on-camera press briefing on Thursday afternoon.

The briefing is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. EST.

Shah likely will face questions about the gun-control debate and comments President Donald Trump made at Wednesday's listening session with survivors of mass school shootings across the country.

On Thursday, the president said comments he made about arming school teachers were misconstrued.

"I never said 'give teachers guns,'" he said in a Twitter post. "What I said was to look at the possibility of giving 'concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience - only the best."
