Speaking to reporter on the South Lawn of the White House before leaving for fundraisers in New York and a working vacation at his golf course in Bedminister, New Jersey, President Trump tells reporters that he has spoken with congressional leaders about how to respond to the back-to-back mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, in which 31 people died and 53 others were injured. The president says the leaders want to do something and says both parties will "lead the charge" to get something done. "We need intelligent background checks," the president says so that people who shouldn't have guns get possession of them. close
