Trump: We Have Tremendous Support for Common Sense, Sensible Important Background Checks

‘I have a great relationship with the NRA’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: “This isn't a question of NRA, Republican, or Democrat. I will tell you, I spoke to Mitch McConnell yesterday. He’s totally on board. He said, I’ve been waiting for your call. He’s totally on board. I spoke to senators that in some cases — friends of mine, but pretty hard-lined senators, hard line. And when I say that, I say that in a positive way. Hard line on the Second Amendment. And they understand. We don’t want insane people, mentally ill people, bad people, dangerous people. We don’t want guns in the hands of the wrong people. I think that the Republicans are going to be great and lead the charge along with the Democrats. I spoke yesterday to Nancy Pelosi, we had a great call. I spoke to Chuck Schumer, we had a great call. And Chuck Schumer in particular loves my China policy, as you probably know. I said, 'I can’t believe it. You actually like something that I'm doing.' He said, 'Not like, love.' So Chuck Schumer is great on the China situation, which we are winning and winning big. And China wants to do something, but I’m not ready to do anything yet. 25 years of abuse. I’m not ready so fast. So we’ll see how that works out. Finally, on the background checks, we have tremendous support for really common sense, sensible important background checks."
