Obama: US has power to prevent gun homicides like shooting in Colorado

Published

on

President Barack Obama on Tuesday said the United States has power to do more to prevent gun homicides like last week’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado.

“We are rightly determined to prevent terrorist attacks wherever they occur, whether in the United States or with friends and allies like France,” he said at a news conference during an international summit on climate change.

“And yet in the United States we have the power to do more to prevent what is just a regular process of gun homicides that is unequaled by multiples of five, six, ten.”

Obama added that Planned Parenthood, which has come under heavy criticism after a video was released about it selling fetal tissue, has given women access to healthcare for generations. He went on to say that abortion is an issue that should be legitimately debated and the United States should discuss it “factually, accurately.”

Omarosa Manigault Newman was interviewed by Donny Deutsch on "Saturday Night Politics."

"You said could it happen here? It is happening here," Newman told Deutsch.

"As a woman of color watching him attack those four women, it made it very clear that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy," she said.

"And everyone has been kind of tiptoeing what this actually is. Donald Trump wants to start a race war in this country and it started at that rally — it started with the tweets," she said.

"You have Democrats fighting each other in the primary. Democrats fighting each other in the House. What do you think about the AOC versus Pelosi dynamic?" Jones asked. "How do you read that? How do you read that?"
