Trump: ‘Second Amendment’ advocates could deal with Clinton
Donald Trump found himself in hot water Tuesday after making remarks about the Second Amendment that some interpreted as a threat of violence against Hillary Clinton. “Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know,” Trump said. “But I tell you what, that will be a horrible day, if Hillary gets to put her judges in, right now we’re tied.” Some political observers were alarmed by his ambiguous comments as to whether he was threatening Clinton or calling for increased political activism. Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager, issued a statement in response to Trump’s comments. “This is simple — what Trump is saying is dangerous. A person seeking to be the president of the United States should not suggest violence in any way,” he said. Trump defended his comments Tuesday, insisting that was only telling his supporters to use the power of their vote to stop Clinton from restricting their Second Amendment rights.
