"Freedom is not a gift from the government".

"You came through for me", Trump said speaking of the NRA's strong support for his campaign previous year.

Trump wrapped up the address by thanking NRA members for their efforts during last fall's presidential election, where they and other gun owners were so instrumental in helping him defeat Clinton.

"We've already seen a 73 percent decrease, never happened before, in illegal immigration on the southern border since my election", Trump said. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, said in a response from Senate Democrats. Chris Murphy to launch a tweetstorm Friday urging people to turn off the president's speech and reflect on victims of gun violence instead.

"What fun that was - November 8", he said.
