In the past 34 years, no sitting President has given a live speech to the National Rifle Association. The last president to attend an event while in office was Ronald Reagan, nearly 34 years ago.
However, President Trump is once again blazing new trails and following in the footsteps of Reagan by giving a tremendous speech for the NRA. As you may recall, the NRA heavily endorsed President Trump during his campaign.
According to ABC News, the NRA is known for their sizable lobbying operation and by raising money for -- and against -- candidates. The group made over $52 million in donations to candidates during the 2016 election. They spent $30.3 million in support of Trump, the CRP reported.
The speech was highly controversial and liberal protesters gathered outside to demonstrate against the NRA and President Trump.
