Trump calls for 'intelligent background checks' in response to mass shootings | 09 Aug 2019 | President Trump on Friday called for "intelligent background checks" on gun purchases in response to a string of mass shootings across the country, expressing confidence that Congress would come together on action. "Frankly, we need intelligent background checks," Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a fundraiser in the Hamptons. "This isn't a question of NRA, Republican or Democrat," he added. Trump said he's spoken with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who he said was "totally on board."
