In a speech following the recent school shooting, US President Donald Trump has told gun advocacy groups that they have no reason to feel afraid or anxious, and that he was doing everything he could to make them feel safe.
“When you go to work today, know that we are thinking of you” Mr Trump said.
He said it was important to think about the victims. “Our thoughts and prayers are with those in the gun industry. Shootings like this affect us all. I will protect you”.
The President said that it was at moments like these that you realised who was most important to you. “Moms, dads – when you go home tonight, tell your gun control advocate you love him”
