WATCH: Trump Joins With Democrats, Supports Assault Weapons Ban

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump joined with the Democrats and Sen. Dianne Feinstein in a meeting on gun control as he appeared to signal support for an assault weapons ban in what many see as a betrayal of his base of supporters.

During a live broadcast in the White House Cabinet Room, Trump appeared to signal support for Feinstein’s radical gun control measures which include banning assault-style weapons.

“Dianne, if you could add what you have also — and I think you can — into the bill,” Trump said.

“Joe, can you do that?” Trump asked. “Can you add some of the things. I’ll help. Can you add what Amy and what Dianne have?”

“I’m going to say this,” Trump continued. “We’re going to get it passed.”
