US President Donald Trump has said bipartisan negotiations on gun reform legislation are moving "very slowly." "We're not moving on anything," Trump told "Fox & Friends" on Thursday. "We're moving very slowly in one way because we want to make sure it's right."
The Republican blamed the slow progress on former Congressman Beto O'Rourke, who said during last week's Democratic presidential primary debate that he would ensure mandatory buybacks for assault-style rifles if elected, Xinhua reported.
Trump's remarks came as his administration is reportedly circulating a memo on Capitol Hill describing a possible proposal to expand background checks to all advertised commercial sales, including sales at gun shows.
