Later in the segment, Neville covered Biden’s visit to Uvalde in the wake of the shooting with Jenkins and that she prays “that it doesn’t keep happening.”
“But as we’ve said before, prayers are not enough,” she continued. “We have to do something. We’ve got to get the lawmakers to do something. Now, the president is, you know, the commander in chief. This is happening on his watch, but he needs the help of Congress to get something done.”
Jenkins agreed that Biden needs the help of Congress, but said he is facing additional pressure because Sandy Hook happened while he was vice president and no gun reform came from it — prompting Neville to interrupt.
“It’s not just about the president uniting, okay?” she said. “It’s more than that. It’s lawmakers who are stopping the unification. So let’s be clear about that. Yes, this is happening on his watch. Yes, he is responsible. Yes, he campaigned on a united America. And, yes, he needs to do something about it, but he can’t do it alone.”
