    Are the Mexicans right when they say, trump is the great Mexican back stroker ? Are we coming to under stand that he never keeps his word Especially when the Money train is going to derail if he does ?

  • 3LD Post author

    If Trump somehow manages to stay out of jail, with his poor business skills & non stop corruption, he would make a great CEO for the NRA, where he would likely prove to be their final death blow.

  • waheeda mohammed Post author

    You bring out the mental trump,you talk they listen. You moron. All that BS & lies!!!!!!

  • Lee Sowden Post author

    So again after another mass shooting he's going to do nothing and what's he want to do start locking anybody up with special needs again like they did in the past

  • Progressive Humanist Post author

    You can't outlaw the mentally ill (& 45* cut funding to help them & keep them off the streets), but you can outlaw weapons of war. So simple: unless you are actually mentally deficient or so utterly childishly irrational you won't accept this inviolable reality.

  • Last Laugh Post author

    Notice how everyone blames the NRA and ignores that trump has created more gun laws then Obama in 8 years.

    Also, if gun laws stopped criminals, what’s the deal with the war on drugs?

    We need licenses and background checks for voters, because the ones who vote for lunatic leftists do more harm than inanimate objects.

  • T Slap Post author

    It’s always he thinks. He thinks Obamas not American. He thinks people were cheering in jersey city on September 11th. He thinks everyone loves him lol. The democrats won’t take away the second amendment. That’s another thing trump wants to lie about to get elected again.

  • Faith Lee Post author

    Ask him why he took away the regulation that makes it harder for someone with a mental illness to have a gun. Come on reporters stop being hoodwinked

  • giggergigger1 Post author

    Such strong checks that any loser can buy assault rifles, thousands of rounds of ammo and murder dozens of other people, trump was never going to try to do anything to control gun crime and hate crime in America

  • tellallwtc7 Post author

    Take a look since the Mueller Report went the wrong way for Democraps, we have had 4 mass gun incidents and nothing more about impeachment.

  • El Loco Post author

    Background checks in the USA are a joke, both for people wanting to buy guns and for people wanting to become president.

  • derry667dingo Post author

    Yeah, that cowardly backsliding didn’t take long. This guy tries to pretend he’s strong but again and again proves himself to be a total wimp.

    The only times he retreats on quicker than saying he’s behind even basic gun safety laws are his half-hearted attempts to prove he’s not a racist.

  • Nunya .Bidness Post author

    Not one Democrat would want the 2nd Amendment taken away, not one. But yet, this fraudulent president continue to spew the NRA's fear mongering tactics. I want to enjoy my firearms for recreation and for protection. I don't need a firearm that can cause massive casualty. There is really no need for it. Having said that, I still believe that every law abiding citizen should have the right if proven sane to own any firearms they want. This boils down then to having a thorough and comprehensive background check to obtain any firearm, period.

  • Edward Berdiel Post author

    We love president Trump

  • Macnutz420 Post author

    Trumpy knows which side his election bid is buttered on and he cares about nothing else. If this were a mental health issue, it would only mean that America is full of crazy people. It may have a bit more than its share but if mental health is the issue, why is America the only western country with this huge problem?
    You do NOT have very strong background checks. Just his usual lies and refusal to take responsibility.

  • Mac Book Pro Post author

    blame the mass shooters for committing their crimes during campaign season, what you think was gonna happen, real change ? LMAO

  • Jens Rasmussen Post author

    Mental institution ? He shut have one on he's own 🙌🏻

  • w9j15g Post author

    Back when Trump promised to push for strengthened background checks after the El Paso and Dayton shootings, many of us predicted he would renege. That's the liar and con man he is.

  • ᕼᑌᗰᗩᑎ ᖴᗴᒪᒪᗩ Post author

    Home grown terrorists aren't crazy, they know exactly what they're doing when they open fire on civilian crowds. They do it because they're full of the same hates and fears Trump feeds them on a daily basis. If I believed everything Trump said I'd be a paranoid, gun-toting racist too.

  • Hax Post author

    I agree with Trump… "It's a mental problem"…. he should get professional help!

  • andtam008 Post author

    We need mental institution to put Trump in.

  • 101perspective Post author

    I think democrats should agree with Trump on this. He is straight up saying that the problem is mentally ill people getting their hands on guns. And he is suggesting we find ways of identifying those individuals. The logical conclusion is that in order to get a gun you must show that you have gone through that identification process and have been found not to be mentally ill.

    Oh ok , I got it now . So It’s the individuals from mental institutions who walk around in circles slapping themselves in the head while talking about Elvis who are also the same individuals who are conscious enough to buy guns , map out a year long plan and then shoot people by the masses with precision … but inside the mental facility they couldn’t remember how to get to the bathroom . Thanks trump I got it now

    "I will never let you down." – t'rump
    And no, that wasn't addressed to the American people. It was directed to the NRA who gave t'rump $25 million.

  • Grey Area Post author

    It's not mental health when you hate brown people. This is a bs excuse. Trying to avoid the white supremacist problem. Racism is part of his base, trying to blame it on mental institutions us a lame duck. Drug abuse is a mental condition, lets focus on that.

  • its just me Post author

    "They closed up almost all their mental institutions and those people just went on to the streets" It appears one of them went on to the White house.

  • The Herald Post author

    Just a thought! Thus far, there's only one person in the Republican party running against Trump. And that doesn't look promising.
    But! What if a woman candidate, say, Nikki Haley decided to run against Trump?
    Talking about changing the dynamics totally? You betcha!
    For one, Trump wouldn't be able to pull the crap on her, like he does Pelosi, or the 4 women he constantly dances on.
    Secondly, I as a Democrat feel she is a sound Republican, and could, if she wanted to, to dismantle Trump's BS.
    Thirdly; I believe she would have respect of both parties, and bring a bit of sanity back from what's been changed by the evil incarnate that's taken over America.
    Fourthly; she would be the first Woman to ever be president.
    Not that this would ever happen; but it would certainly be the WOW moment in history.
    I'd vote for her!
    She has a strength and sensibility about her aura that I like.

  • evilemperordude Post author

    11 days ago, Trump criticized Congress for not standing up to the NRA and said he didn't believe the slippery slope argument. Nothing he says means anything.

  • Cody Craine Post author

    how many people have gone through a background checks in this video? also most major shooting happen in strong gun controlled states. It is not a coincidence, who would be stupid enough to pull a gun when anyone could be holding one as well. That is why mass shootings happen at schools or celebrations, places no one would bring weapons to.

  • AG.Watchman - OSI [Open Source Information] Post author

    Trump says theres "missing areas." If he was a true 2A Constitutional Conservatives he would say that all background checks are unconstitutional.

  • Stéphane Bessette Post author

    The mental health argument is an easy one to accept. After all, someone must be crazy, not right in their head to perform a mass shooting. However it deflects from studies (sadly I have no references) showing that current and past mental health patients are very rarely the perpetrators of such horrendous crimes.

  • Nia Gee Post author

    Here is some info:
    A Firearms Transaction Record, or Form 4473, is a form promulgated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in the United States Department of Justice- when a person purchases a firearm from a Federal. Firearms License holder.
    This form should be mandatory.
    ⬇and
    Gun serial numbers data along with monthly gun purchase info should be automated routinely and checked by all police departments.
    Trump cannot bite the ($$$NRA$$$) hand that fed him and still feeds him.
