  1. We should have a red flag 🚩 law for Trump. Plus Trump has not had a background check and he wouldn’t pass one anyway.

  2. So Colin kapernick kneels against police brutality against civilians and then he’s offended by the Betsy Ross flag… does he hate mayonnaise as well

  3. Isn’t a pistol enough to defend yourself? Alright there’s the second amendment so what? We shouldn’t restrict anything and do laws?

  4. What does it mean to be leftist?
    Left, In politics, the portion of the political spectrum associated in general with egalitarianism and popular or state control of the major institutions of political and economic life. … Socialism is the standard leftist ideology in most countries of the world; communism is a more radical leftist ideology.

  5. You talk about this all the time but what does expanded background checks mean? I smell fascism, since all the weapons in mass shootings were legally obtained that could only mean constant surveillance of all gun owners.

  6. Hang him! It doesn't matter if he killed Blacks, Whites or Brown. He did this in America. We used to do things that Liberals dont like and that is to make are family's safe.

  7. So far the best joke of the 21st Century has been realized when the uneducated fat hicks of the United States saw their salvation in an amoral lying hustler from New York City whose never been loyal to the same thing twice.

  8. See the problem is you have the right to bear arms. It doesn't say you have the right to bear arms after sufficient background checks.

  9. Here we go the globalist are pushing thier agenda on gun-control!!! Wwake up America. I had a feeling way back Trump (who I support) was going to flip-fllop on this one.

  10. 1:25 “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids“ WTF?! Apparently being poor is an ethnic group now.

  11. I watched a Hitler documentary today. So much in common with Trump, it made my skin crawl…… MAGAt🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑 you really think Trump gives a sh*t about you?

  12. Nobody really gave two sh#ts about politics until Trump. Now there are television channels completely dedicated to demonizing him. Thanks trump!

  13. Who determines who is sick? Or what is "sick"? If a soldier returning from combat has trouble sleeping, he reports to "Mental Health" to get help with that. Will that get taken a step further and because of the "Mental Health" reference on their record will they be limited from owning guns? Our government already keeps any of these people with special training on a watchlist. We have never had this number of vets with this kind of combat experience before. They are training and improving the tactical abilities of many citizens. I see this as a way to disarm them. I didn't think any president would sell more guns than B HO, but Trump might pull it off.

  14. Meaningful background checks you people should’ve started this in 2013 when Adam Lanza put four bullets in the back of his mothers brain and then ran over to the school and murdered 23 kids in Sandy hook Connecticut

  15. All this President does and says is rational. Whether people see it or not that's another issue.

    We have one of the smartest people in the White House. And that's fortunate.

  16. All well and good. But most that are considering using a gun for crime are not buying from authorized gun dealers.

  17. Nope ! All it takes for the NRA is to show them some money to have trump and his followers on their pockets again ! Why dont the law makers make it against the law for all the candidates from any party . make it illegal to take money from any private companies and organizations. to give money in shape performance to any candidate , that should be against the law . We can not have any candidate for any goverment position in our Country allowed to take any gift money from any private or public organization or company. not more. That got to stop !

  18. How will this stop criminals from getting guns? Do not mess with our 2nd Ammendment! Im a Dem that love my guns

  19. To be honest if Donald “duck” or whatever was a Mexican he would see what we r feeling and I just wanna snatch his weave off

  20. I see now why its bad to try to work with the democrats, you undermine your own base, while the democrats will still try and make you look bad, even if its what they want.

  21. i think they need to do background tests and make it a waiting period to 6-12 months to get the gun licence and should be followed up once a year with all gun owners or something like that

  22. 5 times as many people died last year from a knife than from an riffle … Why aren't Democrats calling on background checks and bans on knives ?
    The guns aren't the issue … Democrats just want CONTROL over you. Read a history book, Leftist dictators take the guns away, then enslave all the people … this has literally happened many times in just the last century.

  23. Hey Trump Tell your worshipers about the huge recession which is coming soon to screw everyone up except for defense contractors and few rich ones.

  24. We need to expand background checks on who gets to be president in the United States of America. That way we don't end up with a maggot like this pile of manure spewing hate all over this country. And murdering people with his followers. Resign.! Do this country a favor. Do Humanity a favor. No one owes you nothing oh, you owe us everything with your resignation. We're done with the likes of you. You're a hater!.

  25. Biden say that to grab attention, to get the media talking, it's called… The TRUMP Strategy… Every time TRUMP opens his Mouth… He gets the Media Talking…. And the people, prefer a provocative tabloid… Than a Boring Speech… The Candidate that grabs more attention by the media, has better chances of winning…. Its no secret, just highlight the social and domestic problems, manipulate them to suit your needs, and the people will follow.

  26. Wow, thank you so much Trump, for after being in office for 3 years, and after all of the innocent lives lost at the hand of guns, you finally think its time for more thorough background checks. Terrible shootings have been happening since he got into office, he‘s only saying something now because gun control has been a major topic in the democratic debates and he wants more votes in the next election. Sad.

  27. I could shoot someone in the middle of fifth avenue and not lose any voters. – Draft dodging reality show host, TRUMP.

  28. The point isn't whether people presently sick should have guns. The significant question is whether A-N-Y body ought to have those guns. Background checks are N-O-T the issue, guys. And nobody wants to take the kids' B-B guns away.

  29. Every time a citizen does crime they go after the citizens and the guns and there rights every time illegal alien does a crime they make sanctuary cities so they can hide and protected form the crimes

  30. Epstein was ‘Clintoned’ while you were being distracted. And they get to race bait and push gun control while distracting you. So the show continues.

  31. https://youtu.be/w8HdOHrc3OQ
    Please watch and realize we havent changed and us the people control the future. Dont let this speech ring true in 2040 like it did in 1940. For the sake of mankind.

  32. Am I the only one that caught this. 1:21 Joe Biden "People have an idea that if you're poor you can't do it. Poor kids are just as talented and capable as white kids" yeah us poor white people don't exist Biden.

  33. go a head an take the guns , stabbings is on the rise , being run over by a car is fashionable or throwing water on cops , none the less its your world im just camping in it

  34. Apparently, Mitch McConnell was not aware that he's "on board". 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 So glad to be Canadian right now!!!!

  35. Optimistic? All he has to do is sign an executive order yet he doesn't. All he has to do is condemn and counteract Russias continued interference in our government elections, yet he doesn't. When will people see he only cares about himself and his 1% friends?

  36. #WHEN HAVE YOU KNOWN THEM TO DO US ANY OTHER WAY?
    WE ARE ABOUT TO GET OUT OF BABYLON… THE LAND OF CONFUSION AND WIND.

  37. Ever think that bad feeling "trump" gives you is your mind telling you MSNBC made you into complete fools and suckers? #WalkAway

  38. VOTE , people !!!! Dont let another coldhearted , money/ratings worshipping, hate mongering bafoon in office again.

  39. Yeah take guns and start that civil war America… You people that want the 2nd Amendment taken do you really think that's gonna be easy you think people are gonna just give back there guns without a vicious fight😂😂😂…. Especially these white nationalists groups and notorious street gangs or even up standing non criminals who have guns to protect themselves and families… Yeah GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!!!!….

  40. Colossal ego. Typical trump BS. Too little, too late. Have a nice vacation, donnie. They only happen forty-nine weeks out of the year.

  41. Passing a background check law for guns is like just like the must 21 in order 2 buy alcohol law. People can still get there hands on what they really want. COACH!™

  42. Kids shot in Chicago daily. Shooters signing up for background checks: ZERO.
    Guns selling like hotcakes on the streets: Quadrillion, billion, Sixtillion to the Infinite power, times 666.

  43. ??? "Button-down here" I'm not interested, instead I can show you my button =], up there. This channel has no respect for the people. I regret that I did watch this.

  44. Who's the gun grabber now Conservatives? "Take the guns, no due process". But dem pinko Libruls are takin muh gun rights and muh God, BAHAHAHA.
