President Donald Trump — besieged by complaints about the power of the National Rifle Association — on Thursday defended the leaders of the pro-firearms group as "great American patriots."

 Trump tweeted:

Trump's Twitter post came the morning after the president held a listening session with survivors and parents of victims of last week's high school massacre in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 were shot dead, as well as past mass shootings at Columbine and Newtown.

The president on Thursday also slammed CNN and NBC, tweeting "I never said 'give teachers guns.'"
