Clinton Slams Trump for ‘Casual Inciting of Violence’

Trump Denies Comments Were Meant to Incite Violence Against Clinton 2:17

Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of casually inciting violence after making comments suggesting gun rights advocates have options to stop her from appointing judges if elected president.

"Yesterday, we witnessed the latest in a long line of casual comments from Donald Trump that crossed the line," she said Wednesday, referencing Trump’s remarks.

“His casual cruelty to a Gold Star family, his casual suggestion that more countries should have nuclear weapons and now his casual inciting of violence. Every single one of these incidents shows us that Donald Trump simply does not have the temperament to be president and commander in chief of the United States,” Clinton said during a rally in Des Moines, Iowa.

On Tuesday, Trump said: “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.”

Trump’s opponents immediately viewed the comments as a threat against his Democratic rival. The Republican nominee has since said he was referring the tremendous political influence gun-rights supporters hold.
