President Trump: Mitch McConnell ‘Wants To Do Background Checks and I Do Too’

‘Mitch wants to do something’

TRUMP: "I am convinced that Mitch wants to do something. I've spoken to Mitch McConnell, he's a good man, he wants to do something. He wants to do it, I think, very strongly. He wants to do background checks and I do, too. And I think a lot of Republicans, too. I don't know, frankly, that the Democrats will get us there, but I spoke with Chris Murphy, the senator. We had a very good conversation, we'll see what happens. But I believe that Mitch, and I can tell you from my standpoint, I would like to see meaningful background checks, and I think something will happen."
