President Donald Trump said on Wednesday, September 4, 2019, that he hopes to see quick legislative action to address recent mass shootings.
However, Politico reports that he “remained coy about what exactly he would support.”
The president reiterated that any form of gun control passed would have to be bipartisan in nature.
Trump also expressed optimism about Congress’ imminent return after a month-long recess, which he believes would bring an agreement “soon.”
He explained that he is looking into “many different concepts and many different things” in response to recent shootings, “including mental health which is, to me, a very important element of it.”
Among these plans is to re-open certain mental institutions.
“I’ve been having a lot of phone discussions and some meetings with different people in the Senate and the House of Representatives and we’ll be making some pretty good determinations pretty soon,” Trump said. “We’re in touch with a lot of different people; there are many proposals put forward — I heard 29 different proposals, so there’s no lack of proposals, so we’ll have to see what happens.”
To his credit, Trump did not quickly endorse the universal background bill that made its way out of the House a few months ago. This bill represented the largest gun control bill to pass out of any chamber of Congress since the passage of the Brady Act in the 1990s.
“If you look at some of — even the more severe and comprehensive ideas that are being put forward, it wouldn’t have stopped any of the last few years’ worth of these mass shootings,” Trump asserted.
So far, it looks like Trump won’t pass direct gun control measures.
However, gun activists will still have to hold him accountable in the next few months.
Weak Senator Mitt Romney Attacks GOP’s Investigation On Sleepy Joe’s Corruption
On September 16, 2020, Utah Senator Mitt Romney criticized his fellow Republicans in the Senate Homeland Security Committee for their investigation into Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son’s business dealings in Ukraine.
Romney declared that this investigation had the “earmarks of a political exercise.”
Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, the leader of this investigation, said to reporters on September 14 that “in about a week we’re going to learn a whole lot more of Vice President Biden’s unfitness for office.” The committee is in the process of investigating Hunter Biden’s work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma during a time when Joe Biden was the head of Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.
Romney specifically stated at a hearing on September 16 that the investigation “from the outset had the earmarks of a political exercise. I’m fearful that comments made in the media recently have only confirmed that perspective.”
The Utah Senator declared “It’s not the legitimate role of government, for Congress or for taxpayer expense, to be used in an effort to damage political opponents.” He added, “I do believe it’s very important that the committees of Congress, and ours in particular, not fall into an increasing pattern that we’re seeing, which is using taxpayer dollars and the power of Congress to do political work. That’s the role of campaigns.”
Earlier in March of this year, Romney said that the investigation “appears” to be politically motivated. However, a spokesperson for the senator said that he ended up changing his mind the following day after receiving a promise from Johnson that the probe would be conducted behind closed doors.
Romney yet again shows his true colors as a Republican with no spine. In a previous report, BLP exposed Romney for calling out Trump and asserting that he is stoking racial animosity. Romney’s politically correct comments show how low he will stoop to in trying to seek approval from the political establishment. It’s no surprise why he voted to impeach Trump earlier this year.
Serious conservatives should do everything possible to boot Romney out of the party.
