Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is being criticized after his remarks on his Democratic rival Hillary’s security.
Trump made a statement regarding the same for the second time. Trump at a rally in Miami on Friday night highlighted Clinton’s security detail should give up their guns and “see what happens to her”.
Trump said that “I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons.” “I think they should disarm, Immediately,” he added.
Nominees for President are given protection all the time by Secret Service agents. Some are in uniform and some are undercover.
Trump criticized Clinton on her stand over gun rights. Thus, making a comment which invited a lot of criticism as he called Clinton’s Secret Service to “disarm.”
Criticising Trump, Robby Mook who is Clinton’s campaign manager, said Trump had shown “a pattern of inciting people to violence”.
“Whether this is done to provoke protesters at a rally or casually or even as a joke, it is an unacceptable quality in anyone seeking the job of commander in chief. This kind of talk should be out of bounds for a presidential candidate,” Mook said.
Friday’s remark comes just more than a month after Trump made comments that were interpreted by many as a threat of violence against Clinton.
“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 (the right to own guns) people, maybe there is, I don’t know,” Trump said during a rally in North Carolina in August.
Trump camp later tried to change the meaning of Trump’s remarks. They claimed that Trump was referring to action through the ballot box and not via violence.
