When asked by radio host Hugh Hewitt if he meant to "incite violence" against Hillary Clinton with his comments Monday about the Second Amendment, Donald Trump replies: "No, of course not."
"The National Rifle Association, which endorsed me, you know, they’re very concerned about the Supreme Court and many other things," he also said.
At his rally in Kissimee, FL on Monday, the Republican candidate said that if Hillary Clinton became president 'Second Amendment people' might be all that remains to block her from appointing judges to the Supreme Court who would decide to ban firearms.
HUGH HEWITT: Did you intend to incite violence against Secretary Clinton with your comments on Monday?
DONALD TRUMP: No, of course not, and people know that. Rudy Giuliani was there, and being a lawyer, he made a very good case, and actually, a very strong case, but absolutely not. We’re talking about the power of the voter. We’re talking about the tremendous power, and you understand this probably better than anybody, the power behind the 2nd Amendment, the strength behind the 2nd Amendment. And we’re talking about the power of the voter. And the voter does have tremendous power. And the Democrats want to decimate the 2nd Amendment. They want to literally decimate it. And if they get in, they are going to decimate it. But they have to go through various elections, and we’re going to see what happens. But the National Rifle Association, which endorsed me, you know, they’re very concerned about the Supreme Court and many other things. And I think that I can tell you, they endorsed me, I think the earliest endorsement they’ve ever made, and they feel very strongly about it. And they’ve been terrific. And these are great people. These, Wayne and Chris and all of them, they’re great people. These are people that love our country.
