Gov. McCrory must disavow Trump’s “Second Amendment” comment about Clinton
After being introduced by Gov. McCrory, Trump suggests that “the Second Amendment people” could stop Hillary Clinton
After being introduced at a rally in Wilmington on Tuesday by Gov. Pat McCrory, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump suggested that “the Second Amendment people” could stop Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” Trump said. “Though the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know.”
In response, Progress NC Action is calling on Gov. McCrory to publicly disavow Trump’s comment and rescind his endorsement of the Republican nominee.
“Donald Trump’s despicable suggestion that guns may be needed to stop Hillary Clinton goes well beyond the bounds of human decency, and Gov. McCrory must publicly disavow Trump’s outrageous comment and rescind his endorsement of Trump if the governor wants to maintain any shred of decency himself,” said Gerrick Brenner, executive director of Progress NC Action. “Gov. McCrory has repeatedly catered to right-wing extremism in his desperate attempt to win re-election, but this is simply beyond the pale. No public official should support a candidate who jokes about the assassination of his political rivals, and if the governor has any respect for his office or his state he should immediately rescind his support for Donald Trump.”
