Nancy Albano, president of the Highland Beach Coastal Democratic Club, said she thinks Trump was serious about his comments and nearly appeared to dare someone to try to harm Clinton.
“She goes around with armed bodyguards like you have never seen before”.
“I think they should disarm immediately”, Trump, who also travels with a large armed Secret Service detail, told his cheering supporters. Yeah. Take their guns away. Yeah. Take their guns away. In August, he had said that those who supported gun rights should rise up against Clinton, if she became president, to stop her from selecting judges in favour of her policies.
“Clinton’s remarks can be seen as elitist and classist, and that is the result of the hyperbole she used in her comments”, Dan Mahaffee, an analyst with the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, said Friday. “It’ll be very risky”, he continued.
“The next president of the United States must stand in solidarity with all people oppressed in our hemisphere, and we will stand with oppressed people, and there are many”, he said. “This kind of talk should be out of bounds for a presidential candidate”, Mook said. Trump told his supporters that while his opponent slanders you as deplorable and irredeemable, he calls them hard working American patriots who love their family and country.
Within minutes, the Clinton campaign condemned the remark.
There is no evidence to link Clinton to the birthers.
“He started this silliness years ago by saying President Obama is not an American citizen”.
Last month, critics called Trump reckless and unsafe for telling a North Carolina crowd there was nothing they could do about Clinton naming judges if she’s elected, “although the 2nd Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know”.
“There can be no other interpretation”, he said.
“This is so personal to me, and to people my age”, Albano said.
The Trump campaign at the time responded with their own statement, saying Trump was referring to “the power of unification” and calling upon the voting power of “2nd Amendment people”, according to senior communications advisor Jason Miller. But perhaps we are being too harsh with Donald Trump.
Trump’s reference to Clinton’s Secret Service protection – which he also receives – was not his first.
‘Hillary wants to abolish – essentially abolish the Second Amendment, ‘ he said. “You know what I mean”, Trump said. Trump did not address the issue until the end, turning the event into a de facto commercial for his campaign, as the major cable TV networks aired the full event live in anticipation of comments Trump had hyped hours before.
Obama’s remarks came a day after Trump acknowledged that the president was born in the U.S. Without apologizing, the Republican presidential nominee reversed himself after years of promoting a conspiracy theory that Obama was born in Kenya.
The “birther” movement had questioned Hawaii-born Mr Obama’s citizenship and therefore his eligibility as president.
Appearing in Washington, he said Mr Obama was born in the USA but then incorrectly suggested that the Clinton campaign had started the conspiracy theory. Retiring Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., who was honored for his service, said of the GOP nominee, “his hatred and his bigotry has pulled the rug off and the sheet off the Republican Party so we can see it for what it is”.
Her statement that she would bring 186,740 new jobs to Wisconsin while Trump would cost the state 61,050 jobs was rated half-true.
