President Trump suggested Democrats have given up any defense of the Second Amendment and pledged that he will not allow Americans’ gun rights to be swept away on the “slippery slope” of gun control.
"I think the Republicans are very unified. We are very strong on our Second Amendment," Trump told reporters Tuesday during an appearance in the Oval Office with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis. "The Democrats are not strong at all on the Second Amendment. I would say they are weak on the Second Amendment. And we have to be careful of that. The Democrats would, I believe, I think they'd give up the Second Amendment."
He said, “We have very, very strong background checks right now. But we have, sort of, missing areas and areas that don’t complete the whole circle. And we’re looking at different things.”
He added, “And I have to tell you that it is a mental problem. And I’ve said it a hundred times: It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger; it’s the person that pulls the trigger. These are sick people, and it is also that kind of a problem.”
