Trump parrots Fox & Friends report on gun control meeting in rambling ‘respect the 2nd Amendment’ tweet
President Donald Trump reacted to Fox News reports about a bipartisan White House meeting he led with a tweet on gun safety measures.
The president surprised many Republicans during Wednesday’s meeting by calling for more extreme gun control measures than Democrats have proposed, and Trump apparently responded to “Fox & Friends” commentary on those ideas.
Many ideas, some good & some not so good, emerged from our bipartisan meeting on school safety yesterday at the White House. Background Checks a big part of conversation. Gun free zones are proven targets of killers. After many years, a Bill should emerge. Respect 2nd Amendment!
