(KCBS Radio) - On Tuesday President Trump tweeted support for stronger background checks. A position he repeated while meeting with high school students at the White House.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi welcome the Douglass High students and what appears to be a new presidential position.

"I think this is the other tipping point. And all we're asking for is the speaker in the Congress, all we've been asking to the speaker is to give us a vote. We believe there is bipartisan support for it improving the background check bill,"

And this she says could be a game changer.

"Lives are at stake and we have to do it right. But I welcome and hope that what the President is talking about would be so. Would that mean that we have a vote on the floor? We have to ask the speaker that?"
