Trump Says Mass Shootings Would Have Happened Even With Background Checks

As Americans mourned following the country's most recent mass shooting, President Donald Trump weighed in on gun violence.

According to Reuters, Trump said that background checks on gun purchasers wouldn't have prevented the attack.

A gunman near Odessa, Texas, killed seven and wounded 21 more after fleeing a traffic stop on Saturday.

His motives remain unclear.

Trump made the remarks to reporters at the White House after returning to Washington from Camp David.
