PressTV-Trump: GOPers afraid of NRA

US President Donald Trump accuses Republicans of being “afraid of the NRA” amid revival of gun violence debate in the country.

He made the comment in an ongoing meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers at the White House.

Trump asked Republican Senators Pat Toomey and Joe Manchin if they included raising the age limit for buying guns in a bill they co-sponsored.

“We didn’t address that, Mr. President,” Toomey said.

“You know why? Because you’re afraid of the NRA,” responded the president with a chuckle. “It’s a big issue right now. A lot of people are talking about it.”

“A lot of people are afraid of that issue — raising the age for that weapon to 21.”
