In the spirit of fairness, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump called on Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton to relinquish her bodyguard’s firearms over her anti-Second Amendment stance.
Crooked Hillary wants to get rid of all guns and yet she is surrounded by bodyguards who are fully armed. No more guns to protect Hillary!

“Crooked Hillary wants to get rid of all guns and yet she is surrounded by bodyguards who are fully armed,” Trump wrote in a Saturday morning tweet. “No more guns to protect Hillary!”
Trump made similar remarks speaking before the National Rifle Association Friday, saying “heartless hypocrites like the Clintons… want to get rid of guns and yet they have bodyguards that have guns, so I think that in addition to calling for them to name judges, we’ll also call them and let their bodyguards immediately disarm. They should immediately disarm and let’s see how good they do. Let’s see how they feel walking around without their guns on their bodyguards.”
The hotel mogul began his speech at the NRA’s annual meeting in Louisville, Kentucky, discussing how Clinton’s ultimate goal is total disarmament of the American people.
“Hillary Clinton – and you know I call her ‘Crooked Hillary’ because all you have to do is read any newspaper you want – but Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment, just remember that. We’re not talking about changing. She wants to abolish the Second Amendment, so we’re not gonna let that happen, I can tell you that right now. We’re gonna preserve, we’re gonna cherish it, we’re gonna take care of it.”
“If she gets to appoint her judges, she will abolish the Second Amendment,” Trump said. “In my opinion, that’s what she’s going to go for.”
Hillary responded with a tweet about “preventing senseless gun violence.”
