    (April 26, 2019): President Donald Trump on Friday announced at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting that the United States will drop out of an international arms treaty signed in 2013 by then-President Barack Obama but opposed by the NRA and other conservative groups. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-guns-nra-trump/trump-heeds-nra-decides-to-pull-us-out-of-un-arms-treaty-idUSKCN1S21RD
    “We’re taking our signature back,” Trump said to thousands of cheering attendees, many wearing red hats emblazoned with the Republican president’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. The NRA spent $30.3 million in support of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a group that tracks campaign spending.
