US Election News: Hillary Clinton Makes A Case For Donald Trump’s Disqualification, Trump Commits To Protect Second Amendment, & More
Hillary Clinton makes a case for Donald Trump’s disqualification. The former secretary of the state has had it when it comes to the remaining Republican presidential candidate. During an interview with CNN, Clinton described Trump as “divisive and dangerous” and even “unmoored.” She also said that Trump wanting to ban Muslims from entering the country means that Trump is “essentially being used as a recruiter for more people to join the cause of terrorism.”
Moreover, the Democratic presidential candidate also said that Trump willing to have a dialogue with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un “adds up to a very troubling picture.”
Trump commits to “totally protect” the second amendment. When it comes to guns, the sole Republican presidential candidate is all for it. In fact, speaking at the annual convention of the National Rifle Association on Friday, he said that he would protect the Second Amendment if he becomes president.
According to The New York Times, Trump is making a case for making one’s permit to carry a concealed weapon valid in all 50 states, like a driver’s license.
Clinton says Bernie Sanders is done, Sanders disagrees. For the former first lady, it’s all about focusing on Trump now, since she believes the Vermont Sanders is out. During her interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, she said, “I will be the nominee for my party. That is already done, in effect. There is no way that I won’t be.”
In response, Sanders’ spokesman Michael Briggs came out with a statement pointing out that Sanders is “doing much, much better” against Trump than Clinton is. Moreover, the Sanders camp believes that “millions of Americans have growing doubts about the Clinton campaign.”
DNC chair at war with Sanders. It seems the Vermont senator is having trouble making friends recently. Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has criticized Sanders for not condemning outright the violence that occurred at the Nevada Democratic convention last weekend. The said incident was spurred on by Sanders’ supporters.
In response, Sanders is now saying that his campaign “condemns violence at all kinds,” according to a report from CBS News. Moreover, he also accused Schultz and other Democratic leaders of “creating tension.”
Clinton comes home to Park Ridge amid cheers and protests. After being gone for 13 years, the Democratic presidential candidate made her way back to her hometown on Thursday where she attended a private, fundraising event at the Pickwick Theatre.
According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, one attendee said that Clinton talked about the good education she had received in Park Ridge and how “she wants that for everyone, not just whatever ZIP code you’re in.” Meanwhile, she also faced protesters in the street who were holding up anti-Clinton signs and shouting, “No more Clinton.”
