1:06 am
hi julie so in the president's long and oftentimes rambling speech it was difficult to discern the main point although of course he mentioned guns but then he also went on to talk about the criticize saying the iran nuclear deal he said that we were doing well with north korea he touched on the russian vessel gate and calling it a hoax and he also criticized what he terms the fake media but a topic he did return to was trying to urge his base of supporters to turn out for the midterm elections in november control the u.s. house of representatives is at stake here and if democrats are able to flip twenty three seats they would take over control from republicans and trump told his supporters at the n.r.a. convention time and time again that now was the time to show their support as they have always done for this president it is notable that the n.r.a. donated more than thirty million dollars to camps to tribes campaign fund last year's elections and trump has professed his allegiance to this group time and time
1:07 am
again and today his speech was greeted by much applause and fervor among some of his most ardent supporters the anything in that address to give much hope to those who want to see the grip of the n.r.a. loosen as they see it. the answer to your question really in a word is no i have spoken with some reporters some for some protesters here prior to trump taking the stage they said maybe there was a glimmer of hope that trump would be would show some some compromise that he had as he had in the days after the parklane florida school shooting which seventeen people were killed if you'll remember back in february he met with members of congress on televised meeting and it criticized some of them saying that they were afraid of the n.r.a. and that he as president was not at that time he floated the idea of increasing the minimum age to buy assault weapons but quickly after that he met with leaders of
1:08 am
the n.r.a. and he backpedaled those statements and the current stance of the white house has been to arm school teachers in response which is an action that three quarters of school teachers polled has said they are against it is also notable among the wider american public the latest a.p. poll shows that close to seventy percent of americans believe there should be more gun control in the country and in fact protesters are expected now outside of the n.r.a. convention now that the rain has gone away that dominated this morning we're expecting some some of the survivors from the park on shooting to be on hand as well and they pointedly have criticized this convention and pointed out a juxtapose the fact that when trump and the vice president were on stage in fact guns were banned in the audience because they said those firearms would be a danger to the president. all the time heidi thanks very much for joining us there
