President Donald Trump told reporters Wednesday as he was leaving the White House that he is looking into expanding background checks for gun buyers in the U.S. after the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso. The president made the remarks while on his way to visit the two cities.

President Trump also added that he does not believe there is enough support in Congress for an assault weapons ban, but he said he was open to discussing it.
