However, in an interview Thursday with CNN, Trump disagrees with blaming guns.
“This isn’t a gun problem, this is a mental problem,” Trump said. “It’s not a question of the laws, it’s really the people.”
The controversial would-be chief executive contended the killer in Wednesday’s attack should have been identified as having a problem before he pulled a trigger.
“In the old days they had mental institutions for people like this because he was really, definitely borderline and definitely would have been and should have been institutionalized,” Trump told Cuomo. “At some point somebody should have seen that, I mean the people close to him should have seen it.”
Trump then went on to proclaim his support for the Second Amendment.
