Trump Ready to Agree That No Fly List Should Mean No Guns
Trump: I'm a Better Friend to the Gay Community than Hillary Clinton

About 24,500 people are on the TSA's Terror Watchlist, and once you're on it, good luck flying. Soon, those 24,000 people won't be able to purchase guns legally either. Even though Omar Mateen was never on it.
Donald J. Trump is ready to modify his position on Second Amendment protections on Wednesday, tweeting that he would be meeting with the National Rifle Association to discuss preventing individuals on the terrorist watch list from purchasing guns.
This on a day when the New York Times said the current atmosphere of hatred promoted by Trump, is directly responsible for this hate crime against gays. "Hate crimes don't happen in a vacuum," said the New York Times.
“I will be meeting with the N.R.A., who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no-fly list, to buy guns,” Mr. Trump wrote Wednesday morning. The N.R.A. said it would be happy to meet with Mr. Trump in a Twitter post of its own.
Trump reacted today to news that some in the Gay community now support him after fifty people were shot and killed at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. In an interview by Greta Van Sustren, he said:
"Moslem countries like Saudi Arabia, they kill gays and women, they treat them as slaves," said the US Presidential candidate on FoxNews. "She (Hillary Clinto) has taken millions and millions of dollars from countries that kill gays. She wants a 550% increase over Obama of people coming into this country, that don't share our beliefs. I've heard a lot of talk over the last two days, a lot of people are supporting me that you wouldn't think would be supporting me. And they're supporting me, biggly," he said.
"Secretary Clinton took $25 million for his foundation from countries that execute gays and women, they treat as slaves."
About the hack into Democratic party computers, in which data including opposition research on Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee said: "Knowing Debbie Wassermann Schulz, they probably should call me and apologize. But they have not apologized. And they probably should be apologizing."
You tweeted today you'd be meeting with the NRA, about not allowing people on the terrorist gun list to buy guns. Trump said :I'm going ot be meeting with them. They're terrific people, my sons are also members, I want to meet with the NRA, a number of people have brought this to my attention, and that's why we're going to be discussing it.
Your unfavorable ratings have jumped to 70%. All I can do is do what I'm doing. People like me because I"m tough on terrorism. Hillary I think she would be inept, even her secret service agent said she would be inept, I think she would be a disastrous president. People are afraid to go to a movie theater now.
"Isis is getting worse and worse, and you've got to hit them very hard, but a lot of these young people are getting away with atrocities, we're creating it. We shoulda never been in Iraq, but we should never have gotten out by just leaving. Isis is growing because people are leaving our country to join ISIS, because they're respecting them. We have to be sure they don't respect them."
