Trump: Clinton Wants To ‘Abolish The Second Amendment’

Donald Trump, presumptive GOP nominee, told a crowd of his supporters on Saturday that Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton wanted to “abolish” the Second Amendment.

“Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to abolish it,” Trump said at a rally in Washington, reported The Hill. “Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away, and she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to take the bullets away.”

Trump paved his way to the nomination last week after sweeping in the Indiana primary.

“We’re going to cherish the Second Amendment,” Trump said. “We’re going to take care of the Second Amendment.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
