Trump says deal on guns 'much harder,' blames Beto O'Rourke's comments last week

Source: Washington DC

President Trump said Wednesday it has become “much harder” to reach a deal with Democrats on gun legislation, blaming an emphatic call by former congressman Beto O’Rourke (Tex.) for a mandatory buyback program for assault-style weapons.

O’Rourke created one of the most memorable moments of last week’s Democratic presidential debate in Houston when he spoke passionately about a need for gun control in the wake of recent mass shootings. “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” he said, referring to his support for mandatory buybacks of war weapons.

“Dummy Beto made it much harder to make a deal. Convinced many that Dems just want to take your guns away,” Trump said on Twitter, adding: “Will continue forward!”

His tweet comes as Congress waits for Trump to announce what gun-related proposals he would support following a spate of mass shootings, including back-to-back massacres last month in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio.

2. Of course

Nothing is ever his fault and of course we get to hear more juvenile name calling.

Dummy Donnie. I like that better.

4. No Deal?

Mister Art of the Deal can’t pull off an agreement because a nonparticipating person of no standing in his negotiations says something?

Not only is Trump bad, he’s the worst negotiator at any table.

11. Deals mean compromise. Do you think Beto is willing to compromise?

15. To clarify

I reread my post and please don't think I don't think Beto significant. I was making a comment about what's going on in Trump's mind. He usually ignores all but the top tier candidates and House members. But Beto is on a roll with a theme Trump can't ignore.

He was never going to do anything and needed a scapegoat to blame it on.

10. Just like he did from big pharma after promising much lower drug prices

After he took millions in campaign contributions, he's blaming others when its clear after the NRA gave him and others millions his position was already set, he was already going to do nothing and again this is just more excuses from trump , which is a typical move for a con man like he is.

16. Prominent Democrats said the same thing days ago

https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2019/09/13/sen-coons-beto-orourke-gun-buyback-clip-will-be-played-for-years-at-second-amendment-rallies/

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s full-throated call for a mandatory government buyback of assault-style weapons has frustrated some lawmakers on Capitol Hill who are trying to find a way forward on gun legislation that Republicans and Democrats can agree on. The argument is that O’Rourke’s comment feeds into a long-held conservative talking point that opening the door to any changes on gun legislation — even something as minor as expanding background checks — could lead Democrats to eventually forcing people to give up their guns."

17. No link in OP

Trump was obviously looking around for any excuse to do fuck all, and thus satisfy the NRA. That one politician, not even in Congress (and without a realistic chance of winning the primary, either), could be used as an excuse to stop working with an entire party is just absurd.
