Trump is losing the base because of his gun control support.

Grassroots conservatives are pushing back against President Donald Trump after he came out in favor of gun control in the wake of last weekend’s mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH.

“Trump supporters are extremely upset over @realDonaldTrump apparent support of red flag laws,” wrote Debbie Dooley, a board member for Tea Party Patriots, in a Twitter post.

“ANY Republican that supports Red Flag laws should [be] voted out of office. I won’t vote for them even @potus if he keeps pushing red flag laws,” she added.

“I see Democrat presidential candidate after Democrat presidential candidate promising to ban and confiscate guns,” Manning wrote in his organization’s newsletter, the Daily Torch.

“And I see President Donald Trump supporting state red flag laws which will lay the groundwork for them to do it,” he added.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) are leading the charge in the Senate, egged on by President Trump, to create legislation that would allow an individual to have their firearms seized by law enforcement if a judge determines they are mentally disturbed. This precedent could be expanded by a Democrat in the future to encompass all conservatives.

“If the president of the United States himself is not safe from politically motivated abuse of the prosecutorial system, how can the average citizen trust that a law allowing legal, ‘temporary’ confiscation of firearms using ‘expedited due process’ won’t be abused by every risk-averse and politically motivated prosecutor in America?” Mr. Manning wrote.

“The left has sufficiently demonized anyone who supports Donald Trump that no legal ground can be ceded to give these loons of the left a lawful pathway to confiscate guns,” he added.

Regardless of the grassroots pressure, Trump seems undaunted in his push for gun control. He released the following tweet earlier today:

Trump may be jeopardizing his 2020 presidential chances with his push for gun control, as he loses his base doing the bidding of his enemies.
