  1. Uh oh. Someone said something to him. Now he's repeating what the last person said to him. That's how he does policy.

  2. When 90% of Americans want something that reasonably makes us safer and will help prevent mass murder….
    And republicans refuse to even allow a vote ….
    You know that America isn't really as great as we say it is.
    Sadly.

  3. Why don't Dems use this to create ballot initiatives on extensive background checks before gun purchases and an automatic weapons ban?

  4. I lovE the NRA and the NRA loves TRUMP.. A well armed population is exactly what and invading army does not want .. ONLY INVADERS want a disarmed country.. MSNBCannibals are aiding and abetting the invaders with their demonic propaganda

  5. I think we the people should vote to keep or eliminate congress because with the information super highway all the information we need to represent ourselves is at out fingertips therefore representation of the people is no longer needed by congress. Congress is a relic and for the past 2 decades has been locked up in gridlock where nothing gets done a lot of tax dollars are wasted and what little does get done is not conducive nor representive of the best interest of we the people. I vote to shut down congress whereas returning decision making to the people. The majority (60% to 70%) of the American budget goes to the wasteful military industrial complex. Military spending alone should be cut in half and we will still be spending more than twice what China spends on it's military.

  6. WE ALREADY HAVE BACKGROUND CHECKS U CORRUPT DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS AND WE KNOW YOUR NWO AGENDA IS TO TAKE OUR SECOND AMENDMENT AWAY WELL ITS NOT HAPPENING AND TRUMP IS BACKING AWAY FROM YOUR NWO AGENDA AND HES NOT STUPID HE KNOWS WHAT YOUR EVIL PLANS ARE TO TAKE AWAY OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS TO LEAVE US HELPLESS AGAINST YOUR CRIMINALS WITH GUNS YOUR OPEN BORDERS I'LLEGALS WITH GUNS,OPEN BORDERS MEANS WALK RIGHT INTO AMERICA WITH YOUR GINS, DRUGS CHILD TRAFFICKERS COME OND COME ALL.

  7. Politicians, including Trump, are worthless. They should all be removed. This isn't working. They get nothing done. People need to take the power back. Politicians leave everyone open to mass manslaughter because of their greed. They need to all go.

  8. ANOTHER TRUMP BASHING VIDEO WITH MALICIOUS INTENT PROVING MSNBC IS A BEAST SYSTEM MIND CONTROL OPERATION…
    (((Blatant brainwashing tactics)))

  9. I can't even watch him right now … he makes me so sick, blahhhh
    When when when, are you going to wake up!? Like everyone else, trumps scared shitless of the NRA!!!
    My question is, why we've allowed the NRA to have this effect on anyone!??? WHY?

  10. Strong president, I'm going to ban and recall all semi automatic weapons, I'm going to pass red flag laws and I'm going to pass a law to enforce background checks that will take one month. Sorry America you have a clown and a con man running your country, that takes orders from the NRA, his foreign and domestic policies from Fox news hosts, and has a brown shirt( jewish )advisor dictating immigration policy.

  11. CEO mentality, can't agree to get anything done unless it's about advancing their careers or getting more money. CEOs are great at meetings, lunches, speaking opportunities, self promotion and traveling.

  12. I KNEW TRUMP WASN'T GONNA DO ANYTHING AS SOON AS HE SAID IT BECAUSE HE ALWAYS DOESN'T THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT HE SAYS HE'S GONNA DO!!🆗🇺🇸✌😂😂😂
