William Barr held one meeting that is bad news for Donald Trump

Attorney General William Barr received praise from Trump supporters for taking on Barack Obama’s Deep State.

But storm clouds are gathering.

And William Barr held one meeting that is bad news for Donald Trump.

Attorney General Barr caused heartburn for Trump supporters this past week when Barr marched across Capitol Hill presenting Senators with a proposal for new gun control.

Barr’s proposal included a ban on private firearm sales and a national gun registry.

Politico reports:

Trump deployed Barr to speak with senators last week about potential legislation, including Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), John Kennedy (R-La.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas). Barr, together with Eric Ueland, the White House legislative affairs director and a veteran Senate staffer, met with the senators, according to sources familiar with the talks.

“I would say that not everybody in the White House is supporting the president trying to engage and make something happen,” said Manchin, a key Senate negotiator on gun legislation. “But he’s still the president, and I think he’ll make it happen.”

Barr has earned rare Democratic praise over his efforts on gun legislation. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), a vocal critic of the attorney general, described Barr’s role in negotiations as “constructive.” Graham, a close Trump ally, also said that Barr has been helpful with the negotiations and has “been trying to bring the law enforcement perspective to the table.”

Barr and Ueland floated a proposal, according to two Hill staffers, that would expand background checks to all commercial sales and would create an entity to perform them. But Republican senators, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have said they need to hear from the president directly before seriously considering any action plan.

The White House quickly distanced itself from Barr’s proposal once conservatives caught wind of what was going down.

But that did not stop them from questioning Barr’s role in the White House’s response to mass shootings.

During his confirmation hearing, Barr signaled his support for gun control.

And many Trump voters are worried Barr is pushing the President to support gun control that could cost Donald Trump his chances at re-election.

  1. Thanks WFR,
    You correct in your statement. They have not Served our Country or abroad.so they don’t think like we do. I stand for Active Duty, Veterans, DoD/OSD,Civil Servants and all American Citizens no matter what color you are, that’s why we were all called (ALL AMERICAN). Any changes to the Costitution and Amendments should be a case against the people. See what’s best for all not for personel gain or their own agenda. Let’s leave the vote to people of this once Great Nation and see where it goes. Sign Petions go out and Vote. Our rights should not be trampled or infringed or or Right for free Speech any longer. If you have no purpose why even write on this comment page by inflicting Racist comments. We are all one people. When it comes to safety to our Great Nation our Military and Veterans will Stand Strong under our Oaths of position, their is a whole lot of us in every race color and religion. Also look at the statics on on gun violence the FBI just came out with a statistic less than 3% was attributed to Gun Violence. Their were other means of violence that were far worse. I am so tired of this bickering in our Government we need to come together as a Nation as whole by helping the needy,homeless,Veterans,elderly,Active Duty and the American Citizens of our Nation. I have seen alot in two Services of our once Great Nation. You need to take in consideration of the values of our citizens first and foremost stop trying to put your values on everyone else when you really can’t serve your constituent’s. You took an Oath of Office that should stand for doing the right thing even if no one is looking, but are we? this is going down very badly for everyone. In all my years on this Great Planet of ours this is the worst, this is causing discourse between all American citizens. We need ome common sense Leadership and stand up for our Nation just like your Oath says.

  2. Why give them credence going along with what they falsely claim to be? They are extremist illiberal fascists and Communists.

  3. There is not that much hatred towards President Trump. The democrat owned media pushes lies, twists statements, and quotes anti American sources. Democrat hatred caused one of their supporters to shoot and wound a republican politician at a baseball game. Attempted murder, now that is true hatred, wouldn’t you say so Nancy??

  4. So why is there so much hatred toward the Republican Party and their constituents by the democrats with their vial language and violence. The democrats are lying hypocrites.

  5. Please, don’t say that!! We’re counting on Mr. Barr..
    We can’t afford another RINO like McCain!!

  6. United States Supreme Court
    JAIME CAETANO v. MASSACHUSETTS (2016)
    No. 14-10078 Argued: Decided: March 21, 2016
    The Court has held that “the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding,” District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U. S. 570, 582 (2008), and that this “Second Amendment right is fully applicable to the States,” McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U. S. 742, 750 (2010).If the fundamental right of self-defense does not protect Caetano, then the safety of all Americans is left to the mercy of state authorities who may be more concerned about disarming the people than about keeping them safe.
    SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED

  7. What are you talking about? Are you repeating what the dumb-o-crats are saying. Trump is racist.he has done more for minorities than any other president. He is cleaning up their neiborhoods. Bringing in New businesses. Giving them school choices, drug treatment. Job opportunities, training ECT. Just like he has done in New York. Nobody wants to remember that. With all rewards he has received from the African American and Latino neiborhoods.

  8. Say, Mr. US AG Mr. William P. Barr, Sir, ({[“‘Don’t You Know, That It Is ILLEGAL To Take Away Or Infringe On We The Legal Citizens/People And The Legal Immigrants Of The United States Of Americas Rights And Freedoms, Especially The 1st And 2nd Amendments Right’s And Freedom’s'”]})!!!!!!!
