Trump says he will push to close background check loopholes for gun buys
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday his administration would seek to fill in background check loopholes for gun purchases after Democrats accused him of reversing course on gun control measures.
Trump spoke with NRA chief Wayne LaPierre on Tuesday, a White House official said. Trump told reporters outside the White House he did not tell the leader of the National Rifle Association lobby group he would not pursue measures on background checks.
Trump said he views the number of gun deaths in the United States as a public health emergency.
