Summary

President TrumpDonald John TrumpThe dark side of progress: We're ignoring the most potent threat to working-class Americans West Texas mass shooting reignites gun control debate Trump says West Texas shooting 'hasn't changed anything' in ongoing gun talks MORE 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. A very, very sad situation," Trump told reporters.Trump has seemed to vacillate on his support for background checks in the wake of two separate mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, within a 24-hour period in August that left more than 30 dead.After those shootings, Trump signaled he would support stricter background checks, only to later assert that the United States already has “very strong background checks” and repeat a common National Rifle Association (NRA) talking point by warning of a “slippery slope” of enacting gun reform legislation.“I have an appetite for background checks,” Trump told reporters on Aug. 21.
