These Are the Actual White House Talking Points About the Las Vegas Attack

NBC news has revealed secret White House talking points on the mass shooting massacre at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.


The talking points produced by the White House communications department add context to the comments President Trump’s administration has made since the shooting.

Early Tuesday President Donald Trump vowed to look at gun laws, “as time goes by.”

The secret White House talking points have a similar message, stating, “let’s gather the facts before we make sweeping policy arguments for curtailing the Second Amendment.”

Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders deflected questions by invoking Chicago.

The secret talking points also have a similar message, suggesting White House supports cite, “some of America’s cities with the strictest gun laws have the highest rates of gun violence.” The talking points specifically recommend referencing Chicago and Baltimore.

“This shows that more laws on the books may not work,” the talking points claim, in contrast to the results seen by every other developed country.
