During a Thursday night rally in Elkhart, Indiana, Trump warned of Democrats’ relentless attacks on the Second Amendment and made clear that he and Republicans will “defend the right to self-defense.”
Trump said, “We defend the Second Amendment and don’t kid yourself, it is under siege.” He later added, “Never believe that your Second Amendment is not under siege. ”
He said these things to bolster his efforts in juxtaposing Democrats with Republicans, contrasting pro-gun control politicians with those who are fighting to defend the Second Amendment.
Trump said of himself and his party, “We defend the right to self-defense.” This statement gets down to fundamentals, as did so many statements he made last week during his speech at the NRA Annual Meetings in Dallas.
