“I would love to speak to him at this point,” Hogg told BuzzFeed News in an interview on Tuesday.
The gun control activist said he regretted not attending a listening session at the White House in the days after the mass shooting at his high school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Fla. Seventeen people were killed in the shooting.
“I’ve learned over the course of traveling the country how to directly address the issues with the dissenting opinions on our policy and I would welcome the opportunity to tell the president to his face how he could save lives,” Hogg said to BuzzFeed.
The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment from BuzzFeed and The Hill.
Hogg also told the news outlet that he would like to speak with the Trump administration about a 10-point plan from March for Our Lives, a group advocating against gun violence.
Hogg told BuzzFeed that he chose not to attend the listening session because of how "emotional" he was during the shooting's aftermath.
