During a press conference in Tokyo, Trump commented on the Texas church shooting that killed at least 26 people. Following is a transcript of the video.
Donald Trump: And I think that mental health is your problem here. This was a very — based on preliminary reports — a very deranged individual, a lot of problems over a long period of time. We have a lot of mental health problems in our country, as do other countries, but this isn’t a “guns” situation.
I mean we could go into it, but it’s a little bit soon to go into it but fortunately, somebody else had a gun that was shooting in the opposite direction, it would have been as bad as it was, it would have been much worse.
But, this is a mental health problem at the highest level. It’s a very, very sad event. These are great people and a very, very sad event, but that’s the way I view it. Thank you.
