President Donald Trump tweeted Monday morning a proposal to have more background checks for gun purchases paired with immigration reform following the weekend shootings in Texas and Ohio.

Trump said in a Monday morning tweet, “Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!”

“We cannot let those killed in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, die in vain,” Trump added. “Likewise for those so seriously wounded. We can never forget them, and those many who came before them.”
