“There’s not much anyone’s going to say that’s going to make anything better for me,” Pollack told CBS’s “Face the Nation."

“But he listened to things and suggestions that I had and what we’re working on in Florida,” Pollack said of the president.

Pollack during the interview also pushed the concept of school safety following the shooting. 

“I’m not leaving it up to the president,” he said. “I’m taking it in my hands with a lot of people behind me and we’re going to focus on school safety.”
