Ex-GOP Lawmaker Bashes Trump For Tying Gun Reform To His Racist Immigration Laws

If you didn’t already think Donald Trump was a racist bigot, this might change your mind.

Trump told the press on Monday that he would only consider passing gun reform laws if Democrats passed his anti-immigration laws in exchange.

Think about that, the man doesn’t think those mass shootings are enough reason to expanded criminal background checks for gun sales. Instead, he’s tying gun control to immigration laws, which have nothing to do with each other.

But according to former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL), this is just Trump’s plan to gut gun legislation before it even gets off the ground, a typical Republican move.

Jolly tweeted saying:

“Understand, Trump’s proposal to tie gun reform to immigration reform isn’t seriously about getting immigration reform. It’s about killing gun reform. This is how the GOP in Washington makes silent deals with the gun lobby to kill reform efforts. This is *exactly* how it’s done.”
