Pelosi, Schumer urge Trump to support background checks

New York Times Congressional Correspondent Sheryl Gay Stolberg joined "Red & Blue" to talk about what Congress is aiming to do as it returns to Washington. At least three mass shootings occurred in August, killing 38 people.

Senators from both parties have been meeting privately and with the White House on possible areas of agreement.

But guns top the Democrats' immediate to-do list.

But Trump has flip-flopped on guns, first suggesting he'd be open to background checks legislation or other measures to try to stem gun violence, only to backtrack after speaking to the National Rifle Association and others in the gun lobby.

Coons is working with Republican Pat Toomey on legislation that would require federal authorities to notify states when someone trying to purchase a firearm fails a background check.

"The administration recognizes this is a moment where people are looking for leadership and looking for action", said Sen.

Two weeks ago, the Department of Justice offered a set of recommendations to the White House.

"I'm not happy", stated Sen.

We need to judge our elected officials by what they do, not just what they say when it's convenient. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., on NBC's Meet The Press on Sunday.

But he warned against doing nothing at all.

Tory divisions grow as PM refuses to accept 'Pointless' Brexit delay
The Prime Minister has received several setbacks in Parliament and the threat of prison time caps off a awful week for Mr Johnson. The EU has repeatedly said that it will not renegotiate the deal it sealed with May - the deal Johnson has now inherited.

Trump has spoken with several lawmakers sponsoring gun policy bills, including a 30-minute meeting with Democratic Sen. Fifty-six percent said they supported a ban on the sale of assault weapons, including 81% of Democrats, 55% of independents and 33% of Republicans.

But even though it's been more than one month since more than two dozen people were killed in separate shootings in Texas and Ohio, Senate Republicans have still not pinned down what can pass the GOP-controlled chamber and what the president will sign.

But as Congress returned Monday, it remained unclear when the White House would roll out a finalized proposal of what the president is ready to support.

The Senate Appropriations Committee, chargeable for drafting 12 spending payments required to implement the hard-won funds pact - required to stop sweeping spending cuts and allow the federal government to proceed to subject Treasury notes to pay its payments - is getting began this week with payments funding the Pentagon, overseas help, well being, schooling and vitality applications.

Neither party wants another shutdown. Home and Senate aides stated November 21 can be the probably finish date for the measure.

Amid the recent mass shootings, McConnell said he would not bring a gun bill to the floor of the Senate unless it had Trump's support.

Senate Republicans have not said whether they support the House's bill, or whether they will move a separate measure. She has specifically called for those related to labor standards, prescription drug prices and environmental protections. "Speaker Pelosi and I genuinely have incessantly and in my device requested him to enact this". Pelosi, who will ultimately determine whether the House proceeds, is against any formal impeachment effort until the strong case is built and the public is on board.

"There are a lot of members very upset about it", Lowey stated. "But the pressure is not going away".

"The committee does not believe that US taxpayer funds should be used to personally enrich President Trump, his family and his companies", said House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.). A trade war with China ratcheted up over the summer, and lawmakers representing farmers and manufacturers impacted by new tariffs are eager to finalize the deal they hope will significantly increase US exports and boost job creation.
