At least two candidates.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

yeah, right - he tweeted that in 2018 - how many times did he say anything like this at one of his rallies? Answer - zero. This was so unpopular with repubs that he reversed his opinion.

Trump flips stance on gun background checks

Donald Trump has again walked back his support for legislation that would tighten background checks on gun sales after a pair of mass shootings left 31 people dead earlier this month.

In the immediate aftermath of the deadly shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Trump said there was a clear need for “intelligent background checks” and indicated he was willing to use his power to push his party to pass “very meaningful” legislation.

But after conversations from officials with the National Rifle Association (NRA) and Republican lawmakers, Trump has returned to familiar conservative talking points, focusing on the need to keep guns away from the mentally ill and insisting that the US already has “very strong” background laws in place.

“We have very, very strong background checks right now,” Trump said during an exchange with reporters at the White House on Tuesday. “A lot of the people who put me where I am are strong supporters of the second amendment.”

Stop taking the OP literally. He knows His Orangeness' word is not good for anything.
