Trump ‘can give cover to’ Republicans for passing gun control bills: Rahm Emanuel Trump ‘can give cover to’ Republicans for passing gun control bills: Rahm EmanuelIs the president, a white supremacist he’s also made that very clear. if someone who gives who empowers white, supremacist and and who condones their behavior, that was great this week. Let’S talk about our Roundtable joined by Chris Christie, former governor of New Jersey, also ABC News contributor. George W bush, Sarah Fagan, also in ABC News contributor, Patrick earlier in a new moment on the issue of guns on the issue of violence on the issue domestic, are we going to see the same ritual again as we seen before, Spike and interest it receives band That we passed in the 90s as a point person for President Clinton suggest focus on the people that use it, not just the weapons that was key to both passing the Brady Bill on assault weapons. To I don’t think. Democrats should be so quick to go. Write. The background checks a red flag. I would put a salt weapon been clearly on the table and I’d also be demanding also of the background checks, and so I think, there’s important moment. They’Re trying to narrow the debate. Right now is change it does he has. He has said before want to focus on the Suburban boat, and I think this is the opportunity he has to make a decision. This goes to one person because he can give every Republican to cover problem Choose. You said on the one in the NRA’s week, on the other hand, he wants to work with him, doesn’t have to choose between the NRA and getting something done, see. Expanded background checks, legislative negotiations, deal expanded background checks and I think the president has made that really clear and I think he will do it. I believe he would be willing to make that deal that are Democrats can be willing to give him that win. You know you’re all the time Democrats. Well, if you really care about this issue, then take what you get now and again, are you saying you? I heard you saying the NRA? There is a increasing well among Republicans to do something, including down from generation to generation. In these, questions need to be ironed out, as it relates to Democrats brings up the assault weapons ban, which I don’t think, there’s well to get done in the US Senate. What we hear on the campaign Trail, that’s another word for confiscation Democrats on the trailer going to go too far and potentially risk and opportunity to do something on this issue about the assault weapons ban this whole week did not allow it to continue. There have been 29 mass shootings country. Don’T want to do that 1994. It had 77 % support in America and get it still took. The active lobbying of former presidents Ford Carter Reagan, all coming together with the President Clinton get this darn thing done. I think that president is inconsistent 2 at Best and mmxv schizophrenic and policy. We don’t know what he’ll say tomorrow, and I think that Democrats asking if the present is for a real background, check open Beyonce. What we’re talking about. There’S a policy that Patrick talked about, which is the assault ban worked. It expired in 2500, George Bush and it was no real pushed to keep in the legislative branch. Part of being a leadership is matching policy and politics together. Does it mean that you narrow down this quickly? I would not. I would also add that issue, it’s very clear that there’s a lot of holes as it relates to relationship to guns and before we go to background checks, which has a lot of details, innocent the president, any certain types of guns we can just such a multi-faceted Problem, it is important part of the reason for the rise of these incidents is the feedback loop that is being created on the internet, where people Bonneville go online feel validated. This has to be solved through technology. There’S mental health issues that need to be addressed, and, yes, there was some things that need to be done: relative to access to guns by mentally unstable people start from the top on this is Willie. It’S not an eye moments in history. It’S a wee moment. History and instead we have a president whose creating photo ops is holding a baby who’s, the Survivor of a shooting, giving a thumbs-up who’s attacking Democrats. Evan election – you don’t have leadership right, now. Can last week. Patrick, has politicizes moment in an antenna. United States is not present and the media is giving him lost their hair in the office. Fine, with hatred in this country and this legislation, this country and every moment from the Challenger 911 Oklahoma to the Baptist Church in Charleston, to speak to the better Angel. This country, that out of many comes one this president, was at one time a symptom of a problem. Now the cause of the problem – and he is in my view, is an incredible time here. He has a chance to actually raise his used, the presidential Nelly and actually giving voice to the dark Forces. He was once a sentence. He is now a cause of the problem. I agree. The President should use different rhetoric, others as well, but it’s also important to know you have a president calling for background checks which is against, or his party has been, which is against, where other Republican presidents have been. That is real progress, be silent and hear what is happening to the English. This country is to assimilate people. Today we alienate people, Waze responded to his been to visit El Paso to visit Dayton and to call against the wishes of the NRA. A Republican president has called for Universal background checks and a red flag law and I’ve been Patrick place. I’Ve been critical, as you know, sitting at this table and I’ve been, but this week he has moved further George W bush ever move on this issue. Then previous Republican presidents, before George W bush ever different directions that it’s been done before the opportunity to attack and take on political opponents and to launch a campaign-style video about himself. Let’S be honest about what happened has indeed said this, but this is the same president. Now that the president has decided misdirection and against, but also people like Senator barrasso who’s coming dispels President Trump going to the office of the president, yes50 use at a position you can say in 9/11, they will hear our voice in Oklahoma will be here as many Tomorrow, in Charleston South Carolina Amazing Grace rhetoric or line that speaks to the. What out of many is one, and we have Americans that are hurting and he has not found that voice or spoken to that and the better angels did the crosses made. The idea, Sara McConnell John barrasso 60 votes in the Senate will fall in line accounts for concerns that many who are pro Second Amendment supporters are concerned about you figure out how to pass guns from family and so forth. Yes, is base if he is for it. His base is likely to follow and the NRA shoes when they understand such action. Wasn’T it stars of line. Incredibles? How many Republicans Will Go On It?
