Donald Trump reaffirmed his stance on restricting individuals on the terror watch list from being able to purchase firearms, despite Republican objections.
"We have to make sure that people that are terrorists or have even an inclination toward terrorism cannot buy weapons, guns," Trump told ABC's White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl in an interview that will air Sunday on "This Week."
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who supports Trump, told the Washington Post that he appreciates Trump's attempt to look at solutions after the attack last week, but that gun control is "not the greatest issue in the world," and that Republicans on Capitol Hill should not take cues from Trump on it.
Karl asked Trump if his position is that no individual on the terror watch list is to be able to purchase a gun. The GOP's presumptive presidential nominee responded, "I'd like to see that, and I'd like to say it. And it's simpler. It's just simpler."
On Wednesday, Trump announced he would be meeting with the National Rifle Association to discuss restricting individuals on the no-fly or terror watch list from legally purchasing a firearm.
