The Hill reports:
President Trump said Sunday that he is still talking to Congress about measures to stem gun violence but that Saturday’s shooting in West Texas that left seven people dead “hasn’t changed anything.” Trump also asserted that stricter background checks wouldn’t have stopped mass shootings over the past several years.
“We’re looking at the same things,” Trump told reporters at the White House after returning from a weekend at Camp David. “It really hasn’t changed anything.”
“A lot of people are talking about it and that’s irrespective of what happened yesterday in Texas,” Trump said of possible gun reform measures. Trump called the shooter a “very sick person” and praised Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and state law enforcement for their response to the shooting.
