    Trump Administration Withdraws Nominee for ATF Director After Evasive Gun Control Answers

    The Trump administration is withdrawing its nomination for Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, after Chuck Canterbury alienated several Republican Senators during his July confirmation hearing for refusing to give an answer to questions regarding his personal opinion on gun laws.
    Canterbury avoided answering several questions from GOP senators during his testimony, claiming he didnít want to express any opinions that contrasted with the stated policy views of the Fraternal Order of Police. Canterbury is the former President of that organization.

    The Trump administration formally informed the Senate that it was withdrawing Canterburyís nomination on Tuesday. His ambiguous views towards common gun control proposals had ensured his nomination was stalled, and now pulled.

    He can't grow the swamp unless you think the people he replaces were not swamp.
    He has only reduced the swamp.

    Sure, they had to try and buy off everyone else more than usual because Trump was an outsider.

    There has to be a reason the liberals hate Trump.

    He's getting so much flak, he must be over the target.
