President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan met Sunday at the president's winter resort Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, the details of which both sides kept close to the vest.

All that marked the meeting was a statement from the White House:

"The two leaders discussed a wide variety of topics, including securing our Nation’s borders through immigration reform, the continued benefits the American people are experiencing as a result of tax reform, the overwhelming need to improve our Nation’s infrastructure, and the recent tragedy in Parkland, Florida," the statement read.

The Trump-Ryan meeting came just four days after another school massacre, this one about 40 miles south from Mar-a-Lago.

Trump has said very little about the issue of guns and its link to the massacre, which left 17 students and adults dead, except for criticizing Democrats for failing to act on guns when they had the chance with President Barack Obama in office.

Trump will hold a "listening session" at the White House on Wednesday with students and teachers.

Ryan on Thursday, a day after the shooting, warned about an overreaction to the incident infringing on the rights of gun owners while stressing the need to have the facts before acting on anything.

"I think as public policymakers, we don't just knee-jerk before we even have all the facts and the data," Ryan said.
