President Donald Trump said Sunday he is “not sure” whether he would sign legislation to ban the use of child actors in public school classrooms.
Trump, speaking to reporters in New Jersey, said he is open to hearing from advocates on child actors and said he will “look at” the issue in the coming weeks.
“I’m open to a lot of different things,” Trump said.
“It’s an area I really love.
We have a lot to do with our children, and I’ll look at it.
But I don’t know yet.
Trump was asked about the issue by reporters on Air Force One as he arrived in New York for a trip to Texas.
“Let’s just be honest with you, I’m not very familiar with the issue,” Trump replied.
The president also said he doesn’t “know the details” of the bill and that he is not in favor of banning children.
He also said that he was “surprised” by how little attention the issue was getting during his presidency.
“It’s not something that I want to be involved in.
I think we need to do a little bit more,” Trump told reporters.
