WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is insisting that he and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wish to “do something” to strengthen the nation’s firearm background test system within the wake of two mass shootings earlier this month.
Trump informed reporters in New Jersey on Tuesday as he departed for Pennsylvania he’s “convinced that Mitch wants to do something.” He provides, “He wants to do background checks and I do too.”
Publically McConnell has solely dedicated to launching right into a dialogue of the difficulty with the GOP-controlled Senate returns from recess subsequent month.
Republicans have refused to take up a number of Democratic-backed gun management payments that handed the House, and traditionally have opposed many efforts to strengthen the nation’s gun legal guidelines.
Trump offered no particulars on what he and McConnell could have deliberate.
