US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has asked US President Donald Trump to use his constitutional powers to reinstate the Senate for a session of the summer recess to vote on tightening the right to hold weapons in the United States.

The unusual request, especially if Trump approves it, coincides with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s rejection of Democratic demands to cut off the August holiday and vote for sweeping background checks on arms sales after the shootings, the Politico newspaper reported on its website.

“Today, as speaker of the US House of Representatives, I ask you to convene an emergency session of the US Senate to consider passing preventive legislation for armed violence” – Nancy Pelosi said in a speech to Trump.

“This extraordinary moment in our history requires all of us to take extraordinary measures to save lives. However, leader Mitch McConnell is an obstacle to any action” – she said.

Trump telephoned Pelosi after that speech and the president spoke with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in a separate conversation. The president said in a joint statement, “The president gave us assurances that he would review the bipartisan legislation passed by the House of Representatives and understand our interest. To move as quickly as possible to help save lives“.
