Following the horrific murder of dozens of worshippers in Texas yesterday, demands for gun control were prevalent, but President Trump, speaking at a press conference in Tokyo, said the mass shooting was not “a guns situation,” pointing out that the problem was the killer’s “mental health.”

“I think that mental health is your problem here,” Trump said during a news conference in Tokyo, Japan in response to a question about the massacre in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

“This was a very – based on preliminary reports – a very deranged individual. A lot of problems over a long period of time.”

However, as The Hill reports, police have identified the shooter as Devin Kelley, 26, but have not issued an assessment about his mental health.

Kelley reportedly received a bad conduct discharge from the Air Force in 2014 over allegations of domestic violence.

The president said that “we have a lot of mental health problems in our country, as do other countries, but this isn’t a guns situation.”

“This is a mental health problem at the highest level, it’s a very, very sad event,” Trump added.
