this weekend. 12 people killed in virginia beach. police say he had a silencer. since 2016 we've had parkland, las vegas, synagogue shootings. it's not seeming to stop. it seems to be getting worse. do you see this emerging as major campaign issue in 2020? >> well, it did become a pretty big campaign issue in the 2018 elections. more candidates elected in the 2018 midterms who were supporting tougher restrictions on guns. you've got some of the democrats now calling for quite far-reaching proposals, including cory booker calling for gun registration. eric salwell calling for gun buybacks. you still have that opposition led by the national rifle association. republicans control the senate. this has been perilous for democrats in the past. you'll see it more part of the debate. a lot of this will depend on whether young people, especially, are energized to come out in massive numbers because of this issue. >> we saw it in parkland. they were able to do it in florida. >> uh-huh. >> i want to go back to some of the images we saw in tara's piece.

visit your local chase branch. welcome back to "gma." donald trump's state visit to the uk is making headlines even before he touches down tomorrow over his comments about the duchess of sussex. seems he's using a word while discussing meghan that he's used a few times before. abc's david wright joins us from london this morning with more. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, eva. the word is "nasty."
7:40 am
the president used it in an interview with a british tabloid and now the president and his allies are pushing back, dismissing the inevitable controversy as fake news. but it's an example of how on a trip like this, even one wrong word can practically cause a diplomatic incident. the duchess of sussex is still on maternity leave. so she'll be sitting out president trump's state visit, including tomorrow night's dinner hosted by the queen. the british tabloid "the sun" stirred things up by calling trump's attention to comments she made back in 2016 before she joined the royal family. >> as misoygnistic as trump is and so vocal about it -- >> right. >> reporter: in an interview with comedy central during the campaign, then-actress meghan markle didn't hold back about trump. >> she said she'd move to canada if you got elected. turned out, she moved to united kingdom. >> that would be good. a lot of people moving here. so what i can say? i didn't know she was nasty.

>> reporter: nasty is a word trump has used before to dismiss hillary clinton. >> such a nasty woman. >> reporter: he's called kamala harris nasty too. that word ultimately adopted like a badge of honor by women who oppose trump. today, the president and his allies are pushing back on any suggestion he was calling the duchess herself nasty. trump tweeted this morning i never called meghan markle nasty. made up by the fake news media and they got caught cold. his campaign also pointed out the president also said nice things about her in that interview with "the sun." >> is it good having an american princess then, mr. president? >> i think it's nice. i think it's nice. i'm sure she'll do excellently. she'll be very good. she'll be very good. >> in that same interview the president allowed himself to be drawn into the debate over who should be britain's next prime
