Donald Trump’s utterances have been of a shocking nature as they seem reckless in the extreme, so much so that he’s even lost the support of key Republican members.
His latest statement seemed to suggest that if she was elected President and was allowed to pick her judges the only way to stop her picking a liberal Supreme Court Justice might be to assassinate her.
“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” Trump said during a speech on Tuesday in North Carolina. “Although, the Second Amendment, people, maybe there is. I don’t know.”
The second amendment is the right to bear arms which has been a controversial law especially in recent times with all the shootings in the country.
Trump’s camp are unhappy as they feel the statement has been blown out of proportion by the ‘dishonest media’ adding that Trump was only calling for supporters of the Second Amendment to rally around him, vote for him and protect the second amendment.
“It’s called the power of unification,” Jason Miller, senior communications adviser for Trump’s campaign, wrote in a statement. “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.”
Clinton’s camp doesn’t seem to think so as campaign manager Robby Mook said in a statement that Trump’s comment was “dangerous.”
“This is simple -what Trump is saying is dangerous,” Mook said in an emailed statement.
“A person seeking to be the President of the United States should not suggest violence in any way.”
