Speaking at the NRA convention in Dallas Texas on Friday night US President Donald Trump argued against the Iran deal made by the previous administration by arguing that the deal should not have been made as long as Iranians are shouting "Death to America."
Trump also argued that John Kerry is "not the best negotiator we've ever seen."
Addressing the crowd, the US president said: "You know what gets you nuclear war? Weakness gets you nuclear war."
Discussing gun laws, Trump compared banning guns and banning cars because terrorists use them to attack civilians.
He lauded the Texan Revolution (1835 - 1836) and the values conveyed by the Texan motto, "Come take it," and promised the audience in attendance their rights to bear arms will never be altered. The crowd responded by cheering and shouting "USA! USA!" for several minutes.
Addressing the issue of school shootings, Trump said "nothing attracts terrorists more than a sign that says this school is a gun free zone" and repeated a claim he made previously that only men and women armed with guns could protect civilians from terrorists and criminals.
