President Donald Trump took swipes at three Democratic senators by name Friday, as he urged gun rights supporters to elect more Republicans in November in order to boost his agenda.
The president lamented that the 51 seats Republicans currently hold in the Senate are "not really a majority." Trump contended the Senate needs more GOP members after November's midterm elections to pass tougher immigration laws, confirm conservative judges and push back against new gun restrictions.
"We need Republicans to do it right, to get the kind of things we want. We've got to get Republicans elected. We've got to do great in 2018," the president told the National Rifle Association's annual meeting in Dallas.
