Watch Dianne Feinstein Erupt With Glee After Trump Seems to Endorse Her Assault Weapons Ban

•, by Aidan McLaughlin

The freewheeling meeting, broadcast live from the Cabinet Room, featured Trump embracing gun control legislation from expanded background checks to restricting gun sales to young adults.

Perhaps most remarkably, Trump even made a comment that sent Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the Democrat from California, into a fit of joy.

After Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) spoke about her desire to expand background checks with the aim of curbing domestic violence, Trump asked Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) if he could add her proposal to his bipartisan bill with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV).

"Dianne if you could add what you have also – and I think you can — into the bill," Trump then suggested.

Well, as it turns out what Feinstein has is a ban assault weapons — a proposal that is anathema to Republican lawmakers and the NRA.

Feinstein's response was positively giddy, and the Democrat pointed at Manchin and joked "Joe are you ready?"
