President Trump plans on pulling the U.S. out of the United Nations arms trade treaty.
The President made the statement while at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Indianapolis.
The U.N. treaty sets international rules for sales and transfers of conventional weapons.
Those weapons range from small arms to tanks, battleships, and combat jets.
The measure was signed by President Obama in 2013, but never ratified by congress.
The NRA, for its part, opposes the treaty claiming that it impedes on Americans’ gun ownership rights.
And in his speech, the president stressed U.S. Sovereignty.
President Trump went on to sign a message to the senate also informing them he was rejecting the treaty in front of an audience of NRA leaders.
