Trump backs guns at NRA convention

President Trump speaks to the National Rifle Association in Atlanta: watch the full speech. It’s the first time a sitting US president has spoken at an annual meeting of the NRA since Ronald Reagan addressed the group in 1983.

“We have news that you’ve been waiting for a long time,” Trump told the crowd in Atlanta. “The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end.”

He made no specific promises in the speech, which marked his first 100 days in office. He reiterated his desire to build a wall along the Mexico-US border, despite backing off of demands that funding for the project be included in the spending bill that Congress is working on.
