CNN’s Mattingly: GOP ‘Don’t Appreciate’ Trump ‘Weighing in’ on Gun Control

‘Republicans themselves are trying to reconcile what Donald Trump means versus what maybe Donald Trump tweets’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

MATTINGLY: "Republicans themselves are trying to reconcile what Donald Trump means versus what maybe Donald Trump tweets, and the idea that he would break ideologically or away from Republican orthodoxy is not new. He’s been doing it often, regularly throughout the campaign. It’s bun one of the most frustrating elements for a lot of establishment Republicans, but I think the question now becomes what is he going to say after his meeting with then NRA? Is he going to back the democratic proposal they’re going to be voting on on Monday or is he going to try to pull off a little bit and go with the Republican position? I can tell you that when you talk to people on Capitol Hill, Republicans on Capitol Hill, they don’t appreciate him on weighing in on this issue because it’s such a heated fight on Capitol Hill but everybody is really waiting to see what happens next, Pam."
