Axios: Ivanka Calling Lawmakers On Gun Control Bills

Axios reports:

Ivanka Trump has quietly been making calls to members of Congress in the days following the deadly mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso to gauge where they stand on pending gun legislation, sources familiar with her conversations told Axios.

Members she has privately spoken to include Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who she called last Wednesday while he was vacationing in Hawaii to get an update on the bipartisan background checks bill he has proposed with Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Penn.).

President Trump has also been extensively probing his aides and making calls to lawmakers about what strategy he should adopt on gun control and how it will play with his base.
