"I think he probably means well," the frontrunner Republican Presidential candidate said yesterday when asked about an emotional Obama tearing up as he talked about the first graders massacred at a Sandy Hook elementary school in 2012.

Obama Tuesday announced new executive actions on guns, including narrowing the so-called 'gun-show loophole' on background checks.

What the president gets wrong is "the concept" behind his efforts, not his emotion, said Trump reiterating his position that the answer to mass shootings is having more people with guns in the room, not fewer.

Looking ahead to the Presidential race, Trump also attacked other Democrats and front-runnner Hillary Clinton alongside Obama.

"His idea is just taking chunks and chunks out of the Second Amendment (right to bear arms) until we don't have a Second Amendment anymore, and people need protection," Trump said.

Later yesterday, Trump said that Obama should take action to protect Americans, but through legislation, not executive action.
