  1. No way should the democrats be allowed to do mental health background checks on the Republicans to see who is and who is not allowed a gun. They are trying to remove our president from office. The Democrats are going to deny all Republican of guns in doing these so call "mental health background checks: They are going to say all Republican's are racist, nazis sympathizer, Russian Operatives. You all need to allow people to self protect. END GUN FREE ZONES THEY ARE DEATH TRAPS AND INVITE MASSACRES TO COME IN AND SHOOT ANYONE AND EVERYONE THEY WANT WITH OUT ANY RESISTANCE. THAT WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN. I AM NOT FOR THE DEMOCRATS DOING BACK GROUND CHECKS ON THE REPUBLICANS THEY HAVE ALREADY DONE ENOUGH ILLEGAL SPYING

  2. How can they expect us to give our guns away while they want to open our borders at the same time smh so how are Americans gonna protect ourselves and property when the illegal aliens hop the fence

  3. tRump has no idea what the word "meaningful" means. But to be fair, the dictionary is full of words he does not understand.

  4. No. Trump is not promoting “meaningful” background checks. What he means is that any proposed legislation will be rejected by Trump and the GOP (NRA) as “MEANINGLESS”. THAT will be their excuse to do NOTHING.
    The NRA sent the imbecile out to plant that seed.

  5. There was more than ample time to have meaningful background checks, finding loopholes to protect the sale of assault weapons was the time-consuming thing. Nothing has changed, back to background checks to prevent real effective action to ban assault weapons. Real men would never use an assault weapon for hunting, that is why real men support a ban on assault weapons.

  6. It's all a matter of time now. Trump believes he can double talk gun legislation until after the election. McConnell has said the Senate will talk about it in September. And they will talk, every time they are asked about it, they will talk.

  7. MSNBC are the worst of the Worst in the Corruption and these people should be ashamed of themselves but I guess the money they think is worth their soul

  8. Trump is on one side one minute and goes to another state and says'another!
    thats how he confuses people! Most people know that!

  9. The assumption that all people who does not agree with today's currrupt atmosphere is a democrat..is a "surface" and shallow way of thinking.
    It's sad that this country is where it is. It's been this way since the 1600's or whenever the first person with such idea arrived.. Complaints of guns and drugs, and the ones who support the expensive lifestyle that involves guns and drugs are currently quiet or is trying to project this situation onto other "reasons".
    Well it isn't the poor inner city guy, or the country rural guy that's financing this problem. Is always the rich, who uses the bible as a crutch and not use or study it probably, but desires power that finances these lifestyles. *..$ is the root of all evils!

  10. Trump did the opposite in February 2017, just to stick it to President Obama. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/president-trump-made-it-easier-mentally-ill-get-guns-when-n1039301

  11. Melanoma looked awkward holding the baby. Probably her first time shes ever had to. She looked like she wanted the guy to hurry up and take the picture

  12. Putting McConnell on without mentioning the huge donations he receives from the gun lobby is irresponsible journalism.

  13. Totally different views… The views of the people of the United States and the views of the gun lobby. And then there is the view of the families and the friends of the victims of this policy failure.

  14. I would never be happy to see him. If I saw him walking down the street toward me, I'd change sides of the street and avoid him!

  15. The GOP will do NOTHING on gun control. Moscow Mitch doesn't want to stop the NRA money flowing into his bank account.

  16. I can guarantee that there will never be any legislation on gun control as long as Trump and Moscow Mitch are in our administration. These people's biggest donor is the NRA and they don't want to lose it. The same is true of any legislation to stop Russian meddling in our election. Trump receives $Billions in their donations and money laundering operations and Moscow Mitch also received an Aluminium Plant in Kentucky, where I believe his wife is an Executive. She must be cringing at Trump's "Send them back" chants as she is Chinese.

  17. Politicians will do and say anything to keep their paycheck coming in! They don't give a $hit about you or your children, just how much they can sell their soul for. As far as weapons go, you think if you pass laws, things will get better. Did it work with the war on drug? Or did all that do was create street gang; which was great for your 1% masters to make more money!
    You want to solve the problem, (which you really don't want to) Take back your nation from your 1% lords & masters, taxes these pigs and end the greed of man. Provide people with proper healthcare, proper homes and food. Allow them to have a future for their children and their retirement. You will see how fast violence and anger will end. But the truth is, nothing is going to change, your lords & masters control every aspect of your world and life. Now the filth of man, your owners have been preparing to thin out their herd of human livestock. Open your eyes, your Idol god drumpf is the master of evil, hate, filth and now is laughing deep inside his vile disgusting Gentile heart. And you still don't get it yet, understand your place in this world of the filth of man. youtube.com/watch?v=Xbp6umQT58A You should watch the whole thing, but at least start it at 8:23 , you see the start of phase 2; this is where we are today!

  18. More Americans are murdered with hammers every year than with assault rifles. The FBI stats show this, but the media refuses to share this info. Gun owners aren't giving up ANYTHING.

  19. I'm trying to get this. The main stream media keeps a running tab of the number of lies Trump has told (7000 or so?) and then they repeat another bevy of his lies. Why?

  20. The Trumps held an orphaned infant whose parents were nolonger alive to object to their child being used for a presidential photo-op. The victims of the El Paso shooting refused to become complicit in Trump's attempts to use this tragedy for his own benefit. The children of Parkland and other school shootings have begged for Congressional assurances of school safety, but the Republican dominated Senate has been too busy licking the boots of the NRA to do anything to protect our kids. Enough is enough. Letting the Russians steal our votes is treachery. Letting a fake president dismantle our government is treachery. Letting our families be too afraid to leave their homes for any purpose is treachery. I don't care what you try to call yourselves, but you are not a part of American leadership. It is you that has proven to be a fake and useless appendage.

  21. 666 hands signs allover the time surrrended with mason mentor like dog for them like this not enoght mason him self, bunker preperes and the girls with pedofiles and what you gona do more chip rfid, schame on you

  22. Fill Air Force One with politicians from both parties , and visit countries where there isn't a mass shooting every other day. Go. Listen. Learn. Start with Canada.

  23. That uncle of the Baby in the picture, has got to be out of his mind. Supporting the man whose rhetoric, is complicit in the death of the parents of that child.

  24. I thought, that as per donnie, teleprompters are a bad thing. Clearly he was, barely, reading from one. Hypocritical sack of garbage.

  25. Melania holding this orphaned baby makes me sick to my stomach. This baby lost his mother and father because of Trump's hate.

  26. And who believes a word the turnip tRump says? He's been calling for these meaningful background checks for a long time and yet does absolutely nothing to actually fulfill his promises. THE LIAR-IN-CHIEF AT WORK AGAIN !

  27. All I wish for, for the next 2 weeks is Trump turd Tweeting about how he got fantastic holes-in-one during every game of golf. . NOTHING ELSE ! (Of course he didn't, not honestly anyway.)

  28. … and the lies just keep on spewing from Donald Rump – America's 1st FASCIST RACIST DICTATOR ! And then there's Moscow Mitch – Rump's favorite .itche next to Barr & Kelly Ann Conway that is… and don't forget Fox's darling – F.cker Carlson. Careful – if the current scenario does not change, expect yet another FALSELY ELECTED potus in 2020!

  29. More fake news,Trump isn't the president he never was, he was fraudulently acting like he was president, the real U.S. Army made Trump get outside of the White House, Obama was the last president there, Mary Stanley's gang bribed most of the federal government workers in Washington D.C. to quit their jobs that's why the U.S. Army had to do it, Trump's gang probably murdered some people in Washington D.C., probably those 6in9 ones went into nursing homes and murdered some people or else they murdered some U.S. Marine's or U.S. Senator's, I believe that Trump doesn't like the U.S. Military or the U.S. government and that it was his idea to murder some U.S. Marine's or U.S. Senator's and to have some of his gang people do it, the 6in9 ones.
    It's time to declare a war against those gangs, Trump's gang, Mary Stanley's gang, Pence's gang, Obama's gang, Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang, and Pelosi's gang, raid Trump's tower in New York City, there will probably be a wild shootout there the U.S. Military against Trump's gang inside of that tower, probably a bunch of those 6in9 gang criminals inside of there and the 6in9's that murdered some U.S. Marine's in Washington D.C., and some Russians, Trump and his wife, a lot of those people will be arrested and shot and killed there or wherever, there's probably a lot of illegal money inside of that tower, that will be seized, Trump's gang probably embezzled that money out of the federal tax accounts in Washington D.C..
    All of the federal courts and the FBI have been shutdown since about 2014 after Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang murdered an FBI agent from the Indianapolis Indiana FBI office, and Mary Stanley's gang murdered a U.S. Supreme Court judge or a U.S. Senator, Mary Stanley's gang bribed most of the FBI agent's and Federal court judges to quit their jobs in about 2014, Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang also bribed a lot of police officers in the state of Indiana and West Virginia to quit their jobs, the White House will be seized, searched and destroyed by the real U.S. Army, there's going to be a war breakout against Trump's gang, Mary Stanley's gang, Pence's gang, Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang, Obama's gang, and Pelosi's gang, they've committed a lot of devilworshipping murders, embezzled billions of dollars, racketeered various crimes murders, labor, etc., fake police officer's all over the place, there will be a lot of real estate to seize that Mary Stanley's gang owns, a lot of homes and buildings to destroy. I want the job or contract tearing those homes down Cat 336 excavator and a Cat 973 track loader,I want the contract tearing down the Trump tower in New York City, if I can find a subcontractor to tear it down for about $10,000,000,000.00 that's ten billion dollars add my 5% to that and that is $10.5 billion dollars, that's $500,000,000.00 before taxes for myself, a lot of other homes and buildings that those gangs own to tear down, I'll get some subcontractor's to help me on those and I want my 5% on all of those. If Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang and Mary Stanley's gang own apartment towers in New York City I want the contract tearing those apartment towers down to, probably Ms-13 gang criminals and illegal cash in Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang owned apartment tower and 6in9 gang criminals and illegal cash in Mary Stanley's gang owned apartment tower, there's some homes in Jefferson county and Lawrence county Indiana that Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang own, there's probably fake names on the real estate deeds.
    The U.S. Army needs to go to Jefferson county Indiana and Lawrence county Indiana, to get the fake police officer's out of the police department's and court house, the schools here have been shutdown for about six weeks now because of the fake police officer's people are concerned about their safety and security, and those gangs embezzling money from the state and federal government. Some of those gang criminals will have to be shot and killed, gang criminals that have did those devilworshipping murders, Mary Stanley and Pence's gang have bought funeral homes to try to cover up murders, those funeral homes will have to be seized, searched, and destroyed by the real U.S. Army.
    There needs to be real news, I believe that the real U.S. Army will probably have to make those public announcements.

  30. Of course he doesn’t show anything he feels, the monster like him knowing absolutely nothing about the feelings, he’s a sociopath ego maniac narcissic personality desorders.

  31. trump reversed Obama legislation which banned guns from the mentally ill!!!! WTH is he talking about?!!! Trying to take credit, again, for something that Obama had already done!!! SOB!!!

  32. That makes me sick to see Melania Trump careing the baby after the shooting was caused by themselves president and the first wife that's a shame to see that heartless trump and to see them smiling like nothing going on very sad.

  33. Refuses to let media cover his visit. Then gets mad when the media doesnt cover his visit. I think the media needs to stop taking Trump seriously in its coverage. It legitimizes his stupidity.

  34. So make it ILLEGAL for White supremacists to hold Rallies…and tRump is the one that rolled back the restriction for mentally ill people from owning a weapon…

  35. What do you Leftist know? Lies. This guy lies every time his mouth his moving. Here's one for ya: Trump never said there were fine Nazis. The left-wing assertion is a lie. Video proves the president never said Nazis were fine people. When Trump said there were "very fine people on both sides," he was referring to people demonstrating in Charlottesville for and against tearing down a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee, not to Nazis and Antifa.

  36. We had had back ground checks for over 30 years. When you buy a gun at a gun shop. They call FBI and do a back ground check. It's called nics. National instant check. This has been in place with the Brady bill so what are they talking about

  37. GOP NO to NRA FINANCING

    He publicly condemns the hate rimes and atrocities carried out by white supremacists in El Paso, Texas and in Dayton Ohio. Has he the will to introduce gun control measures that would effectively eliminate or minimize shooting spree by racially/radically motivated individuals/groups of people. ? It has to begin with him halting his maggots infested foul mouth from further dividing the people. And finally GOP will have to say NO to NRA DONATION as the first humble step towards rejecting CORRUPTION.

  38. In any of the three recent shootings would background checks have made a difference…my understanding is no, as is typically the case.

  39. interesting fact : Feb 2017 trump rolled back Obamas regulation that would make it harder to sell firearms to people with mental health problems.

  40. Speaker of the House " Hon. Nancy Pelosi" She is the Best of the very Best, I really admire her performance in every proceding direction action, " ACTIVATE YOUR HONOR ".

  41. Great. Teleprompter Trump on the case. He looks like he had to place a stick firmly in the right place to follow each line. I will commend his staff on providing Trump words that are less likely to be slurred. Hard consonants and short vowels. Too bad this alter-ego "Teleprompter Trump" is even less motivated to carry through on words .

  42. On February 26, 2018 (post the Parkland, Florida, High School Mass Shootings), Donald Dump said this: "We must do VERY STRONG Background Checks! No doubt about it!" On 09 August 2019 (post the El Paso, Texas, Walmart Mall Mass Shootings) –literally, 18 months later, Donald Dump just said this: "We must have Background Checks. VERY STRONG Background Checks. Mitch McConnell is on board." November 3, 2020 cannot arrive soon enough! This dirty, racist, murderous FILTH must be kicked out of the White House and the Oval Office cleansed of these corrupt forces of evil in 2020!!!

  43. You Americans don’t want to change the turning point for this country should’ve been Sandyhook Connecticut it’s too late now

  44. David Jolly has got it right. Background checks will mean very very little. As a clinician and research psychologist, I can tell you that the "prediction of dangerousness", which is what background checks are all about, is a very difficult thing to accomplish. If you take a broad brush, paint all possible candidates as dangerous, you will get in trouble with civil liberties. You cannot keep guns out of the hands of everyone who has ever seen a shrink, or everyone who has ever needed to see a shrink, because the vast majority of those folks are not dangerous. If you go narrow, you will not improve on what we already have, which is the ability to put somebody obviously, today dangerous on a 48 hour hold.
    So Jolly is right. where we need to focus is on banning assault weapons, making thm like machine guns. If you can really prove you need a machine gun, we'll let you buy one. If you can really prove you need an assault rifle, okay. But for most purposes of self defense, a pump action 12 or even 20 gauge shotgun will sstop any intruder into your home. We need a ban on assault weapons, and that will not be totally effective, but at least partially.

  45. Background checks is just as effective as 'thoughts and prayers'. Synonymous with doing nothing. Many of the angry white gun murderers would have passed a background check and acquired weapons legally. Banning online weapons sales and gun shows would be a good start. Only a start.

  46. Many of the mass shooters in America reportedly never had a criminal background or psych hospital history. A background check law will do very little to prevent more killing.

  49. I had to get a background check for every firearm I have ever purchased. Hmmmm. First one was in 1994. Crazy.

  50. he is just sputtering words. Nothing this pig man says, none of the "is this what you want to hear" promises, have any meaning. No one in his party has even been discussing this but he pretends there is already something in place that he can say is meaningful and useful. "Meaningful" is a new word for him because he has been told his words have no good meanings to many people.

  51. Trump couldnt predict a bowl movement his commitment to reality and knowable crap is: hamburger=good🍔
    No hamburger=bad.

  52. Andrew Yang – Democratic Candidate for President 2020 – https://www.yang2020.com/ – As president, my first priority will be to implement the Freedom Dividend, a universal basic income (UBI) for every American adult over the age of 18: $1,000 a month, no strings attached … ANDREW YANG FOR PRESIDENT 2020
