Trump camp spins: He just meant voters
The Trump campaign is in defensive mode again, attempting damage control.
The Donald Trump campaign offered an explanation of an allusion the GOP nominee made to “the Second Amendment people” preventing Hillary Clinton from appointing Supreme Court justices — a line widely interpreted to be a reference to assassination — by arguing that Trump actually meant that the political power of Second Amendment supporters would stop Clinton.
“It’s called the power of unification – 2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power. And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump,” Jason Miller, Trump’s senior communications advisor, said in a statement to reporters Tuesday.
The statement was titled: “Trump Campaign Statement On Dishonest Media.”
