Senator Brown, Mayor Whaley hold press conference following Pres. Trump’s visit to Dayton


MOVING TO MAKE SURE WE CAN HAVE A NATIONAL RED BLOG LAW AND THERE IS A PIECE OF THAT LEGISLATION THAT WOULD MAKE OHIO AND TEXAS BE A PILOT FOR CITIES TO GO RIGHT TO THE FEDERAL COURTS WHERE THE SENATOR WAS VERY ELOQUENT ABOUT SOME OF THE THINGS HE HAD TO SAY SPINNING THANK YOU. I WAS HERE ON SUNDAY IN THE AFTERNOON WITH THE MAYOR AND POLICE CHIEF. SOME OF THE FIRST RESPONDERS THAT SAVE LIVES WE SAW SOME OF THEM TODAY AS WE MET POLICE OFFICERS WHO UNQUESTIONABLY SAVE THE LIVES OF DOZENS OF DOZENS OF PEOPLE. BOTH OF US SPOKE WITH THE PRESIDENT RIGHT WHEN HE GOT OFF AIR FORCE ONE. THE MAYOR AND I ASKED THE PRESIDENT TO CALL ON SENATOR McCONNELL TO MOVE TO BRING THE SENATE BACK IN SESSION THIS WEEK, TO TELL THE SENATE HE WANTS THE BACKGROUND CHECKS BILL, THAT ALREADY PAST THE HOUSE, HE WANTS IT ON THE FLOOR. I ASKED THE PRESIDENT TO PROMISE TO ME AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THAT HE WILL SIGN THAT WILL AFTER HE HAS SPOKEN OUT IN SUPPORT OF IT WITH SENATOR McCONNELL. HE ONLY SIT WE WILL GET THINGS DONE. LATER, I ASKED THE PRESIDENT, I SAID IF YOU CARE ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH MANY PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THE GUN LOBBY, WILL IT IS NOT GUNS IT IS MENTAL HEALTH, WILL IT IS MOSTLY TOO MINIGUNS ON THE STREET. WHEN HE SAID TO HIM HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS IF HE CARES ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH THE IMPORTANT THING IS NOT TO REPEAL THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT AND NOT TO CUT MEDICARE. THAT IS ESSENTIAL BECAUSE MEDICAID MATTERS SO MUCH FOR PEOPLE THAT STRUGGLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES. THE LAST THING I SAID TO THE PRESIDENT BEFORE HE LEFT, WE MET WITH POLICE OFFICERS IN THE HOSPITAL IN THE CONFERENCE ROOM AND THE PRESIDENT SAID WE WANT TO GIVE HONORS AND AWARDS TO THESE POLICE OFFICERS THIS IS MR. PRESIDENT, RESPECTFULLY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO FOR THESE POLICE OFFICERS IS TAKE THESE ASSAULT WEAPONS OFF THE STREET SO THEY DON’T HAVE TO GO UP AGAINST THOSE ASSAULT WEAPONS. Reporter: [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] I THINK HE HEARD ME. I DON’T KNOW IF HE WILL TAKE ACTION, I’M HOPING FOR THE PEOPLE OF DAYTON THAT HE DOES BUT WE KNOW THE SENATOR AND I SPOKE VERY DIRECT WAY WHAT WE HAVE BEEN SAYING THE WHOLE TIME ABOUT THE NEED FOR GUN LEGISLATION POLITICIZE, DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICANS POINTING THE FINGER AT EACH OTHER, DON’T BOTH PARTIES TAKE BLAME TO FIND A SOLUTION TO THESE MASS SHOOTINGS? WHAT DO YOU MEAN? THERE HAVE BEEN MASS SHOOTINGS IN BOTH DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATIONS. REPUBLICANS FOR YEARS NOW HAVE DIED IN THE NRA, THE GUN LOBBY, GETS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES AND SPENDS MILLIONS AND MILLIONS AGAINST DEMOCRATS. WE CAN’T GET ANYTHING DONE IN THE SENATE BECAUSE MITCH McCONNELL AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ARE IN BED WITH THE GUN LOBBY. THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS WE CAN WORK ON TO MAKE THIS WORK BETTER. THE GUNS ARE A BIG, BIG PART OF THIS. CERTAINLY MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES MATTER, BUT THE SAME PEOPLE THAT SAY IT IS MENTAL HEALTH NOT TOO MINIGUNS ON THE STREET ARE THE SAME PEOPLE THAT TRY TO CUT MEDICAID, THE SAME PEOPLE THAT TRY TO REPEAL THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. BE HONEST ABOUT THIS. GUNS IS A BIG, BIG PART OF THIS. WE HAVE A WHOLE POLITICAL PARTY IN THIS COUNTRY NOW, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF CONGRESSMAN TURNER I WOULD ADD WHO HAS BEEN ON THE RIGHT SIDE, IN BED WITH THE GUN LOBBY. YOU CAN COLLECT GRIDLOCK. Reporter: SENATOR . THE SWAMP. Reporter: BOTH YOU AND THE MAYOR HAVE BEEN CRITICAL OF THIS PRESIDENT. IN FACT INITIALLY YOU WERE GOING TO MEET WITH THE PRESIDENT CHANGE YOUR MIND. I WONDER, A LOT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FEEL AS THOUGH WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE. WE HAVE HEARD ALL THIS BEFORE. WE HAVE BEEN IN THE SITUATION IN THE PAST. DID EITHER OF YOU HEAR ANYTHING AT ALL THAT WOULD LEAD YOU TO BELIEVE THAT THIS TIME SOMETHING MIGHT BE DIFFERENT I DIDN’T IN ANY WAY WANT TO ENCOURAGE THE RACIST, DIVISIVE TALK AGAIN BECAUSE MAYOR WHALEY ASKED ME TOO COME I THOUGHT MAYBE I HAVE A CHANCE TO TALK TO THE PRESIDENT ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND WE GET A CHANCE TO TALK TO THE PRESIDENT ABOUT PUSHING PRESSURE ON SENATOR McCONNELL, AND ASSAULT WEAPONS WHICH CALL IT CONGRESS DID FOR A TEN YEAR PERIOD AND GET THE PRESIDENT, BECAUSE OF THE PRESIDENT TELLS THE CONGRESS THAT IS AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN THE PRESIDENT SAYS PASS LEGISLATION, THE REPUBLICAN CONGRESS AND SENATE WILL MOVE ON IT IN THE HOUSE WILL UNDOUBTEDLY MOVE ON WE CAN DO THAT THIS, FOR US, WE HOPE SO. I’M NOT HOLDING MY BREATH. TOO OFTEN WE SEE COMPLETE IN ACTION BECAUSE THEY ARE WAITING FOR TIME FOR PEOPLE TO FORGET THAT NINE PEOPLE DIED IN DAYTON. BECAUSE OF A GUN THAT WAS — THAT SHOULD NOT BE LEGAL, FRANKLY. I POINTED OUT TO THE PRESIDENT, FORMER SENATOR MIKE DeWINE VOTED FOR THE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN. IF THERE WAS A TIME THIS WAS BIPARTISAN SO WE ARE LOOKING FOR THOSE PEOPLE IN CONGRESS TO COME TOGETHER BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF THE AMERICANS AGREED THAT SHOULD BE ACTION. DO I THINK WE WILL SEE ANOTHER MASS SHOOTING TOMORROW OR FRIDAY? PROBABLY BECAUSE WASHINGTON WILL NOT . DOESN’T SEEM LIKE SOMEONE — THIS THE FIRST TIME I MET THE PRESIDENT SO I DON’T THINK MY ABILITY TO LOOK IN HIS EYES IS GOING TO GIVE YOU ANY INSIGHT AS TO WHAT HE WAS THINKING. Reporter: [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] I’M SORRY? Reporter: [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] THE CONVERSATION AT THE AIRPORT WAS PRETTY BRIEF. HE WAS MOVING PRETTY UGLY TOWARDS US IT WAS LIKE MR. PRESIDENT, THE CITY OF DAYTON, THE PEOPLE OF DAYTON ARE REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SOME ACTION. Reporter: [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] NO. I’M VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE PRESIDENT THAT DIVIDES AND THIS RHETORIC AND RACE IN HIS RHETORIC. REMEMBER PRESIDENT BUSH AGREED VERY LITTLE HE LIED ABOUT THE IRAQ WAR AFTER SEPTEMBER 11 PRESIDENT BUSH SAID [ INAUDIBLE ] PRESIDENT OBAMA AFTER THE TWO MOST AWFUL SHOOTINGS, SANDY HOOK IN CHARLESTON WENT TO COMFORT THEM AND TALK TO THEM SAYING HEALING LANGUAGE. I WISH THIS PRESIDENT WOULD DO THAT. DID NOT TALK ABOUT THAT WE TALKED ABOUT MEDICAID AND CUTS. I DON’T KNOW THE PRESIDENT INTIMATELY BUT I WILL CONTINUE TO CALL PUBLICLY THE POLICE DEPARTMENT SAID — WHAT DID HE SAY? HE WAS COMFORTING HE DID THE RIGHT THINGS IT IS HIS JOB IN PART TO COMFORT PEOPLE. I’M GLAD HE DID IT DATE POLICE SAID ABOUT AN HOUR AGO THE PRESIDENT IS NOT PLANNING TO STOP BY THE OREGON DISTRICT? THERE WERE PEOPLE THERE AROUND THAT TIME I THINK IT WAS A DECISION NOT TO STOP AT THE OREGON DISTRICT. Reporter: READY SAY THAT? LOOK HOW MANY OF YOU WERE HERE FOR THE SUNDAY VIGIL, AND IF YOU? SO YOU SAW SOME OF THE ANGER AND AGITATION IN OUR COMMUNITY ABOUT IT. THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT OWN BUSINESSES IN THAT DISTRICT ARE INTERESTED IN THE PRESIDENT BEING THERE. A LOT OF TIME — Reporter: HAD FILLED OUT THE COMMUNITY’S RESPONSE? I’M PROUD OF IT. I HAVEN’T PAID A LOT OF ATTENTION TO THE RESPONSE TODAY, YOU MIGHT KNOW SOMETHING I DON’T KNOW. WE DID NOT HAVE SALES LOANS SERVICE, THEN WE CAME A HERE. I WOULD SAY IS SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T-I WOULD SAY THIS COMMUNITY HAS BEEN EXTRAORDINARY FROM THE NIGHT HAPPENED FROM THE POLICE TO THE RESCUE PEOPLE THAT SHOWED UP THE PEOPLE AT THE HOSPITAL WERE TERRIFIC AND PEOPLE SHOWED WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES CAME THEY SHOWED RESPECT FOR THE OFFICE IN A NUMBER SAID TO ME THEY ARE NOT GREAT ADMIRERS OF HIM PRIVATELY BUT THEY CLEARLY SHOWED RESPECT FOR THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT. IS ONE OF THE REASONS I AM HERE. IN ADDITION TO THE MAYOR’S REQUEST. I THINK THIS TOWN HAS BEEN EXTRAORDINARY FROM THE RALLIES TO THE RALLY TO WHAT HAPPENED IN THE TORNADO. WHAT WE YOU TELLING SENATOR PORTMAN ABOUT WHAT SHE DID TONIGHT YOU WOULD PUT TOGETHER WE DIDN’T TALK TODAY ABOUT THESE ISSUES. WE TALK — IT WASN’T A TIME TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME TALKING WE HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WE DIFFER ON THE ISSUE OF GUNS WE HOPE WE CAN FIND COMMON GROUND ON THIS BUT SO FAR, SO FAR WE HAVEN’T. Reporter: MAYOR WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE OREGON DISTRICT IN TERMS OF SUBURBS, PEOPLE WILLING TO GO BACK AFTER THIS AFTER COVERAGE DIES DOWN THIS IS THE LOCAL SPOT, THESE ARE LOCAL BUSINESS OWNERS WITH LOCAL RESTAURANTS. WE WANT PEOPLE TO COME AND SUPPORT THE DISTRICT. WE WILL BE HAVING ACTIVITIES OVER THE COMING MONTHS FOR PEOPLE TO COME DOWN. YOU WILL HEAR MORE ABOUT THAT LATER. THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO, NUMBER 1 YOU CAN DONATE TO THE DAYTON FUND, THE DAYTON FOUNDATION FOR THE VICTIMS THAT HAVE BEEN HURT. NUMBER TO YOU CAN CALL THE PRESIDENT AND SENATOR PORTMAN AND THANK CONGRESSMAN TURNER FOR ACTION AROUND GUNS. ALSO YOUR STATE LEGISLATURE BECAUSE THE DeWINE STUFF IS COMING. CALLING, CALLING I AM FROM DAYTON AND I WANT ACTION ON THIS. VERY IMPORTANT. AND NUMBER 3 SUPPORT OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES AND OREGON DISTRICT. THREE THINGS THE OREGON DISTRICT IS WELL KNOWN FOR MAYBE ALMOST ANY PLACE IN THE STATE LOCALLY OWNED BUSINESSES YOU HAVE PLANS TO MEET WITH THE FAMILIES, HAVE YOU REACHED OUT TO THEM? WE HAVE VICTIM ADVOCATES FOR EVERY SINGLE FAMILY. THEY KNOW VERY WELL. YOU LISTENING LIVE TO SHERROD BROWN AND THE MAYOR OF DAYTON, OHIO, NAN WHALEY, TALKING ABOUT THEIR MEETING, BRIEF MEETING WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO WAS IN DAYTON WITH FIRST LADY MELANIA, FOR ABOUT TWO HOURS TODAY, VISITING SOME OF THE VICTIMS, PRAYING WITH FAMILY MEMBERS AND OF COURSE THINKING THE FIRST RESPONDERS.

  • Two worthless politicians up there grandstanding on the backs of dead victims laughing and carrying on like a couple giddy school kids while in the back of there minds thinking this is the best thing that could of happened to Dayton, so they can blame everybody else including the president but not themselves or the Democrat party that has, through their policies and there constant rhetoric of hate, violence and division in this country. It's absolutely disgusting and there both a disgrace to there offices and the country.

  • I cannot support either one of these people. Both most certainly are not helping unite a broken state and country. Trump is begging for us to unite, these dividers are only hurting us.

  • TRUMPkittyMommy says:

    Nan is a liar and she can keep her fat hands off of my 2nd Amendment rights.
    Sherrod is a hateful liar, trying to get more people killed, and he hates the police heroes.

  • OHIO MAYOR WHALEY JUST DID AN INTERVIEW ON FOX AT 3;45PM CT, 8/7/19 AND FLASHED THE WHITE SUPREMIST SIGN WITH HER LEFT HAND, SO WHY IS SHE CONDEMMING IT.

  • nobodies trying to be relative. The biggest differance between these losers and Trump is trump isnt trying to score political points from a shooting, These goofs are, trying to virtue signal, blaming trump and acting like they are saviors. No politician is the reason for this or the cure for this. Its a diversion,

  • Kjostolf Borchgrevink says:

    What hypocrisy by the Democrats… they talk about unity, they say they want unity, but then they refuse to work with President Trump concerning a tragic situation like this. Oh, they had a little meeting at the airport with the President and all they did was talk about political legislation, but they don't want to hold a press conference together with him, or spend time visiting victims and the people of Dayton with him? Again… such hypocrisy

  • Look at her you can tell she’s an alcoholic. She needs to start worrying more about the shit hole city that she’s trying to run before bashing the president who had nothing to do with the shooting and she won’t come out and talk about how her one of her Democrat supporters are the ones that shot up the city he was definitely a democrat and supported them but you don’t hear about that she’s just another piece of shit Democrat

  • • Both are solution focused & offer effective action plans
    • Both commend Drumpf for not being a complete arsehole when he visited.
    • Both are working together to help their community through this tragedy toward a better future.

  • Michael Miyake says:

    In the beginning Senator Brown comes out and say's , 'I told the president this, and I told him that…". I don't believe him. I think what happened is that pres. Trump was too busy comforting people consoling people, greeting and taking pictures and just being a nice guy. The Senator is bringing up politics and basically mis-characterizing an event of healing and helping people that have been hurt. I doubt that Sen. Brown exchanged more than a few words w/ the president.

  • Trump won Dayton and Mont county…yet she says he doesn't need to visit some district because alot of the business owners in that district wouldn't want him there…lololol..well to be fair I looked it up and it was almost 50/50 on Dayton

  • Barry Hussein Obama had a Democratic controlled congress.
    Did they send him a bill on assault rifles? NOPE.
    He got Obama care passed, but not the gun reform these facist are demanding Trump to pass.
    Did Clinton pass it with his Democratic controlled congress?
    NOPE.
    If you say its the lack of gun control at fault, then blame the Democrats that twice had control of congress in the past 25 years.

  • Nice to see there’s not too many comments or likes on this video. I’d hate to think that there are more ignorants fools like the ones commenting lol

  • When before has a president been asked not to show up to the aftermath of a tragedy on home soil? It’s not hard to connect the dots people. We can all see that it’s his rhetoric that inspires these shootings.
