Donald Trump: Knife crime turns London hospital into 'war zone'

NRA Executive Director Chris Cox and Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne La Pierre welcome President Donald Trump onstage to deliver remarks at the National Rifle Association Leadership Forum at the Georgia Worl

Will there be a different conversation among rank-and-file gun owners about firearm safety?

During his speech, the president also vowed not to tighten U.S. gun laws despite suggesting after the Parkland, Florida school shooting that he would take on the powerful gun-rights group. "'Bye bye, gotta get on the plane, ' because we have to do the right thing", he said. This was not the first time Trump spoke at the event - he's given speeches since 2015 - but his address a year ago marked the first time a sitting President addressed the convention since Ronald Reagan, an indication of his strong relationship with the organization.

It was the first annual NRA meeting since America's worst high school shooting on February 14 in which 17 people were killed by gunman Nikolas Cruz at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida.

Vice President Mike Pence also spoke in support of gun rights before Trump.

He made it clear that NRA members need to vote for conservative Republicans in the mid-term election in order to ensure their second amendment rights remain secure.

Trump's speech in Dallas was his fourth consecutive appearance at the NRA's annual convention.

Mr Trump threw his full weight behind the NRA last night after briefly straying from the lobby group's stance against gun control in the wake of the Parkland school shooting.

After expressing interest in increasing the minimum age to purchase a so-called assault weapon to 21, Trump later declared there was "not much political support" for the move.

Trump dispersed other mentions of his Second Amendment advocacy throughout the hour-long speech.

President Donald Trump's message Friday at the National Rifle Association convention was clear and welcomed.

In January , it wrote, "By Amazon's choice, this is a public auction, so you should conduct this deal out in the open". The announcement details show that Amazon now employs some 1,000 researchers and engineers at its Vancouver facility.

He reiterated his support for allowing well trained teachers to carry concealed weapons, and having highly trained security guards in schools.

Trump said that in conversations with his "political people", they had advised that going to this year's convention would be controversial and "may not be popular".

"Your Second Amendment rights are under siege".

If Trump's initial reaction to Parkland was cause for concern for any of the members, they weren't surprised - that's just part of his process. After a closed-door meeting with the group's leaders, Trump backed off and the Republican-controlled Congress hasn't approved new gun control bills.

PROTEST: PETA and supporters will be gathered outside the NRA convention center grounds from 10 a.m. through 3 p.m.to stand in solidarity with and in support of all the victims of gun control violence across the country.

Giuliani revealed Wednesday that Trump had reimbursed his attorney Michael Cohen's $130,000 payment to Daniels, the adult film star who alleges she had an affair with Trump.

Trump also urged the crowd not to become "complacent" heading into the midterm elections as he sought to galvanize the base.

"Manafort was there for a short while but he's a good person, I really believe he's a good person", Trump said.

But Trump quickly backtracked, instead embracing modest gun-related measures such as legislation to improve information-sharing for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
