Donald Trump is responding to accusations by the media and the left that comments he made at a recent rally were tantamount to a call for violence against Hillary Clinton.
Trump made his now-controversial comment at a campaign rally in North Carolina on Tuesday.
“If [Hillary Clinton] gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although, the Second Amendment people, maybe there is,” Trump told the audience in North Carolina.
The Clinton campaign wasted little time in responding to Trump’s comment. In a statement released on Tuesday, the Clinton camp said, “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.”
In an interview on Tuesday’s Hannity, Trump dismissed the notion that he was calling for violence.
“Hillary wants to take your guns away,” Trump told Sean. “She wants to leave you unprotected in your home. This is a tremendous political movement. The NRA, as you know, endorsed me — they’re terrific people. Wayne and Chris and all the people over there and they tweeted out, basically they agree 100% with what I said.”
Trump added that “there can be no other interpretation” of what he said other than asking second Amendment supporters to head to the polls for him in November. “Even reporters have told me. I mean, give me a break,” Trump said.
