Here we go again. Donald Trump started yet another controversy after telling his supporters that Clinton’s Secret Service detail to be “disarmed” to see what happens to her.
“I think her bodyguards should drop all weapons. Disarm immediately,” Trump said. “Take their guns away, let’s see what happens to her.”
Trump’s comment, which came as he criticized Clinton over gun rights, is not the first time he has made suggestions that could be construed as a threat of violence against Clinton.
During a rally in North Carolina in August, Trump made comments that were interpreted by many as a call to assassinate the Democratic presidential candidate.
“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.”
The Trump campaign defended those comments as a call for increased political activity, but the Clinton campaign said unequivocally that Trump’s comments were “dangerous” and irresponsible for a presidential candidate to make.
