Donald Trump 馃 Greg Abbott: Ponerse del lado de la NRA y el lobby de las armas por encima de la seguridad de nuestras comunidades

Mientras Donald Trump y el gobernador de Texas, Greg Abbott, se dirigen a la reuni贸n anual de la NRA en Dallas, el director de medios hispanos del Comit茅 Nacional Dem贸crata, Marco Frieri, emiti贸 la siguiente declaraci贸n:

鈥淒onald Trump y Greg Abbott una vez m谩s est谩n fraternizando con la NRA al mismo tiempo que impulsan una peligrosa agenda MAGA que antepone el lobby de las armas a la seguridad de nuestras comunidades. Mientras el presidente Biden trabaj贸 con ambos partidos para promulgar la legislaci贸n bipartidista contra la violencia armada m谩s importante en d茅cadas, Trump y Abbott se han arrodillado ante la NRA en todo momento y han criticado repetidamente las reformas bipartidistas. El pueblo estadounidense est谩 harto de la agenda apacible y desconectada de los republicanos MAGA que permite que las armas lleguen a manos de delincuentes en lugar de hacer聽 m谩s seguro a los聽 m谩s seguro a los Estados Unidos鈥.

Al igual que Donald Trump, Greg Abbott tambi茅n ha antepuesto el lobby de las armas por encima de la seguridad de nuestras comunidades.
