Trump talked assassination of Hillary Clinton by gun rights supporters today. Trump said ‘second amendment people’ could stop Democrat choosing undesirable supreme court justices if she is elected.
Did Trump hint or call for the assassination of Hillary Clinton by supporters of gun rights?
The Republican nominee was speaking at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, about the next president’s power to appoint supreme court justices. “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” he said, adding: “Although the second amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know.”
“This is simple – what Trump is saying is dangerous,” said Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook. “A person seeking to be the president of the United States should not suggest violence in any way.”
Jason Miller, a communications adviser for the Trump campaign, attempted to explain the candidate’s comments. “It’s called the power of unification,” he said. “Second amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power. And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump.”
The crowd repeatedly screamed chants of “Lock her up!”
It’s 1930 in 2016. Here we go.
