WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on campaign 2016 (all times Eastern):
Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump says he will be meeting with the National Rifle Association to discuss ways to block people on terrorism watch lists or no fly lists from buying guns.
Trump announced the meeting via a tweet Wednesday, without providing any details on the time or place. The meeting follows a mass shooting in Orlando in which the gunman, Omar Mateen, had been on the government’s terrorist watch list for 10 months before being removed.
The NRA endorsed Trump last month. The nonprofit group advocates for gun rights.
The raw, boisterous Donald Trump who stormed to victory in the Republican primary season has been seen more frequently in the days since a gunman killed 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
And since the Orlando shooting rampage early Sunday, there’s been no sign of the more measured Trump who politely celebrated on the final night of the GOP campaign season.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee said Tuesday that “we cannot continue to be politically correct.”
